The new Nexus 7 will retail for $229 for the base 16 GB Wi-Fi model and will be available starting July 30th. On the other hand the Chromecast is already up for ordering and could well find itself in stores around July 28th for those in the US. The worldwide availability is to begin shortly too.

The specs of the new Nexus 7 were leaked well before the launch, yet to recap, the device will be running on a Snapdragon S4 SoC with the display being 1920×1200.
