Ready for the retail clear-out of the Nexus 7? As we mentioned a couple of weeks ago in our latest Q&A session, Google was preparing to drop the price of the Nexus 7 to make way for the new model which could launch by the end of the month. While we’re waiting for that to happen through Google Play, the discounts at retailers have already begun.
Staples dropped the price of the 16GB and 32GB Nexus 7s to $179 and $199, respectively. Their website claims that this offer expires on July 13, but I’d imagine that the deal will run until they can clear out whatever stock they have left. With the new Nexus 7 potentially launching on July 30 (though nothing is ever solid with Google), the sooner they can get rid of these the better.
But keep in mind, should you now be considering a purchase of one of these, that the new version will be an upgrade. It’ll likely sport a Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, better display, 4G LTE radios and rear camera. If I were you, and you were in the tablet buying market, I’d wait a few more weeks.
