The white Nexus 7 tablet will only be available for the larger 32GB model, and is currently listed on the Play Store in the US, UK and Japan. The product follows most white Nexus designs, featuring a white back with a black front.

The smaller 16GB model and the 32GB variant with LTE connectivity remain available in black only.

Google announced the white Nexus 7 on its Nexus Twitter account earlier today but confirmed Australia was not one of the markets where the new colour variant would be available.

Visiting the URL for the white Nexus 7 in Australia currently displays the message "Nexus 7 (32GB, White) is not available in your country."

The availability of the white variant comes over three months after the tablet officially went on sale through selected Australian retail stores including JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith in late August.

Google officially opened online sales of the Nexus 7 in Australia back in mid-September.

The 16GB Wi-Fi Nexus 7 sells for $299, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model is available for $339. A 32GB Wi-Fi+LTE version of the Nexus 7 sells for $439.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

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.
