The company announced today on its Australian blog that the tablet is officially available online.

The online launch comes almost three weeks after the tablet officially went on sale through selected Australian retail stores including JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith.

The 16GB Wi-Fi model of the new Nexus 7 sells for $299, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model is available for $339, a price hike of $50 and $40, respectively, compared to the original Nexus 7.

Google also sells a 32GB Wi-Fi+LTE version of the Nexus 7 for $439. All three models have a listed dispatch time of between 1-2 days and include free shipping for a "limited time".

The online launch of the new Nexus 7 in Australia comes almost two months after Google officially unveiled the device globally.

While it retains the same name as its predecessor, the new 7in tablet features a slightly different design and has a host of upgraded specifications, headed by a full HD display.

The tablet is also 2mm thinner than its predecessor (8.65mm), weighs 50g lighter (290g) and includes a 5-megapixel rear-camera, a feature that wasn't present on the original model.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
