    Does anyone know where I might be able to see a Nexus 7 in person in Canada? I really want a retina mini, but it's out of the question due to price. So I'd like to be able to actually use a Nexus 7 before I buy one. BestBuy.ca says they're not available in the stores here so I'm assuming that means there is no display model. I'm not sure where to look. FWIW, I'm in Québec City.

    EDIT: Finally found something promising. Seems like it's available at Future Shop. I'll stop by there later to see.

    Do you have a Bureau en Gros near by? They have them on display there.

    I do! And I happened to have run out of printer ink last night too. It's fate. Thank you!

    I never got to Bureau en Gros, but I found it at Best Buy. Future Shop only has the 2012 model. (I'm updating this in case anyone else ever has the same question.)

    I went to the Future Shop at Place Laurier and they only had the 2012 model. I was looking for the new Nexus 7 FHD 2013 version. Of course that doesn't mean that other Future Shop locations don't have the newer version.

    Yeah, Staples is called Bureau en Gros in Québec. I did get there eventually and saw them. Bought one online yesterday. There was a super Cyber Monday deal. The 32 GB model was only $230 on eBay, rather than $269.
