Nexus 7 pre-orders shipping now. A poem.

Posted Jul 13, 2012 at 2:18 pm in Threads > News

In honor of Google’s rhyming tweet announcing the Nexus 7, I present to you, “Nexus 7 pre-orders shipping now. A poem.”

If you bought a Nexus 7 from Google on Play,
you’ll be happy to know it’s shipping today.


Announced on Twitter, via “the web,”
the tweet didn’t use a hashtag, but a plus sign instead:


“Locked and loaded, ready to play: we’ve started shipping +Nexus 7 pre-orders today!”

And just like that, with a “Tweet” button press,
the Nexus 7 was released in the US.


Google said we’d first see it in the middle of July,
and I’m thrilled to report the Big G didn’t lie.
Word’s coming in from all over online,
that the new Nexus 7 will ship just in time.


If you ordered from GameStop, Staples or Google themselves,
you should have your Nexus just as it hit shelves.
