If you were one of the few waiting for the Nexus 7 to arrive on Amazon, we thought we would let you know that the wait is over. We also thought we should point out that you’ll pay more through Amazon than you will any other retailer on the planet. The device retails for $199 (8GB) and $249 (16GB) at places like Staples, Office Depot, Gamestop, and of course, the Google Play store. If you choose to go the Amazon route, you’ll pay at least $271 for the 8GB version and $289 for the 16GB version.
At one point, when the 16GB version was sold out across the country, you could have made the argument that purchasing it for $290 would have been worth it. With stock showing back up through Google Play this morning, you’d be foolish to pay more than $250.
