    Still 1-2 days for white 16&32GB versions in the UK. I’m a bit pissed that I haven’t received mine yet having ordered it yesterday – my nexus 7 had free shipping and came the very next day from google, yet this cost £10 shipping and is dragging its heels. In fact, a bit pissed is an understatement – I’m rather mad. I could have picked one up from another retailer today for LESS than google is selling them for and had it today if I hadn’t of pre-ordered via Google (like I have for most other Nexus devices I’ve owned).
