Nexus 7 unboxing

Americans got their Nexus 7s last week, but today was N-day for those of us who had pre-ordered Nexus 7 in the UK.

At least, the £159 8GB version of Asus' 7-inch beauty were delivered today. The bigger 16GB ones (£199) seem to be being shipped tomorrow.

Anyhow, as is de rigueur, if it comes in a box, it comes out of the box with photos every step of the way.

So here's our Nexus 7 unboxing.
