For many in Europe the wait for Google’s Nexus 7 tablet is nearly over — the device is now available in France, Germany, and Spain. Prices are numerically the same as those in the US, only denominated in Euros — €199 for the 8GB model and €249 for 16GB, and work out identically to the UK prices of £159 and £199.

The news marks the Nexus 7’s first expanded availability since its July launch in the US, Canada, and Australia. We still don’t have any word on European availability at retail, but ordering now from Google Play should get you a tablet in 3–5 days. And to the rest of Europe, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
