Just as it stopped taking orders temporarily for its new Chromecast HDMI dongle, Google has opened the Play store floodgates to take orders for the new Nexus 7 Android tablet.

It still says orders of the second-generation slate running updated Android 4.3 Jelly Bean may not ship until as late as July 30, but free ground shipping is also being thrown in for a limited time. Both the 16GB version ($229) and the 32GB ($269) models appear to be available for ordering at the moment.

The Play store link is here, and I also recommend checking out the comprehensive Nexus 7 review from the CNET team, as well as why I might be holding off on placing my own Nexus 7 order .

Finally, please let us know if you're planning to buy one by taking our poll .
