Google Nexus 7 is already on eBay

Google's new Android 4.1 tablet can apparently be purchased early, if you're willing to pay way over the retail price.

Today, Google revealed its rumored Android 4.1 tablet to the world, complete with a $200 price tag and July shipping date. But if that just sounds like too long to wait (that's gotta be at least three full days, maybe longer!), the 7-inch Nexus 7 slate can already be found on sale by some opportunistic hawkers on eBay.

At the end of today's keynote at Google I/O where the Nexus 7 was unveiled, the company announced that all 6,000 attendees to the developers' conference would be receiving a Nexus 7, Nexus phone, and Nexus Q social streamer. So, it's no surprise some of those lucky folks seem to be cashing in already.

This particular seller is offering the new tablet for a "Buy it now" price of $500 or a starting bid of $250. Surprisingly, there are no bids yet. I guess you folks aren't that impatient after all, or the hard-core Android fans are all bidding on this other Nexus 7 auction, which has several bids, but none over $300 just yet.
