Has the credit for sure, not sure about the movie.

Also there's rumors that Nexus devices bought from Google get direct replacements without any waiting whereas from a retail store, you'll have to RMA to ASUS.

London Drugs and Visions also started selling them on the weekend too.

Well that's something if the device ever needs repairs.

Wish Google would give us more information on these things...

Unfortunately, this rumour turned out to be just that.
Warranty is through google for 15 days, or for retailers usually 30 days and the reminder of the one year limited warranty is through Asus directly.

Well I got my UPS tracking number last night. Since it's "WORLD EASE" as the shipping product, I'm guessing it's coming from the USA. All other orders have been shipping out from Kentucky, so that may be where mine is coming from too. We shall see once UPS picks it up.

Was that emailed to you, still haven't received any information on mine yet.

Also is looking like the 8GBs are being sent out to people pre-ordering them in Canada but not the 16GBs yet.

well I just got an email from Google. they said 1-2 weeks before they ship mine. I really wish Google did there end first, once all pre-orders were sent then staples and others could start to sell them.

Yeah, email from Google last night around 10:30PM.

I think they've simply ran out of 16GB units, too many in-store orders to fulfill. Speculation of course...

From here Google itself:

An update on Nexus 7 pre-order shipping status - Google Play Help

In Canada:
We’ve shipped all Nexus 7 8GB orders. We are in the process of shipping Nexus 7 16GB orders and will ship them in 1-2 weeks.



I should really just cancel my order, save the 20$ and pick up retail.

At least you're due to get it end of this week. I'm looking at another week or two...

I think I'm going to go ahead and cancel my order tomorrow and get it retail. I'm not directly giving Google money for this fiasco.
