There's lots of rumors floating around that a new model is about to be revealed(july 2013).

I'm not normally one for rumors but as I'm looking at buying one of these devices, I want to ask what peoples opinion as to the rumors are.

Do you think it likely that a new model is very soon to be revealed/released?

Should I wait? I don't mind a few weeks ....
I'd be gutted if I bought one and two weeks later the new one was out.
Not so if it was 6 months later ;)

Now is definitely not the time to buy a nexus 7 unless you get it extremely cheap.

Bestbuy has the new 16 Gig one for US$230 and the 32 Gig version for $270.  Damn.  Just bought wifey one of the old ones from Amazon for about US$194..

So BestBuy is okay to have customer to use NZ credit card? I recently got BestBuy account to try buying Metro: Last Light digital code for 1cent - which got cancelled.

They specifically mention in if you click on International Orders - you have to put in a specific address in Texas as the billing address on the card.

But will see soon enough.

Yep. Order cancelled. They don't ship to known freight forwarders - only way to discuss is to call their number - in the US.

Crap.
