Nikkei lower after GDP data, other Asian markets gain

The Nikkei slips 0.6% on the heels of weaker than expected Q2 GDP data out of Japan. Some say slower growth may delay Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's sales tax increase.

Across the region: Shanghai Composite +0.9%, ASX +0.5%, Hang Seng +1%, Kospi +0.1%.
