Deal: Groupon is Still Selling Brand New Nexus 7 (2013) 16GBs for $149

I can’t believe this deal is continuing to be available over at Groupon. Google’s last 7-inch tablet, the Nexus 7 (2013), after being featured by the deal site for almost two months, can still be picked with 16GB of storage for just $149. We are talking a brand new device, as well, not the refurbished kind that most deal sites are hawking these days. This is a unit that retailed for $229 when it was first released.

Still in search of a tablet? As odd as this may sound, the 2013 Nexus 7, even at $149, is still a heck of a deal.

Deal: Brand New Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB for $135 From Groupon

Just before Christmas, we pointed out that Groupon was selling the Nexus 7 (2013) with 16GB in brand new condition for $149. If you bought it then, I apologize, because you can now grab one for $15 cheaper, thanks to a coupon code.

Somehow, Groupon hasn’t sold out of their stash of Nexus 7s after having them available for weeks at that insanely low $149 price. If this new discount does what we think it will do, they will likely sell through the rest in a matter of hours. By using coupon code “SALE10,” you can slash 10% off your order, which brings it down to $135. Oh, free shipping is also included.

If you need a tablet, this is a deal still worth jumping on.

Download: Android 5.0.1 OTA Updates for Nexus Devices (Updated: 5.0.2)

Update 12/24:  Added Android 5.0.2 link for the Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi.

Update 12/15:  Added Nexus 5 link! (Cheers Dustin!)

Update 12/10:  Added Nexus 4 link. Also added Nexus 6 link.

Android 5.0.1 OTA updates are starting to pop-up for most of the Nexus devices, which isn’t all that surprising after seeing the new Android version hit AOSP yesterday with factory images shortly behind it. The first three devices to receive build LRX22C are the Nexus 9, Nexus 7 (2013) WiFi, and Nexus 10. But don’t be surprised if the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi, and Nexus 6 updates aren’t far behind them.

As is the case each time new OTA updates rollout for Nexus devices, we have started a running list of the updates that can be sideloaded, along with instructions for flashing them. We will continue to update this list as more device updates pop up. Also, as a reminder, we only provide the direct-from-Google download links, so these are as safe as can be.  (more…)

Android 5.0.2 LRX22G Factory Image for Nexus 7 (WiFi) Randomly Shows Up

Don’t bother getting comfortable with Android 5.0.1. Google just posted a factory image of Android 5.0.2 (LRX22G) for the Nexus 7 (2012) WiFi (“nakasi”).  Yep, they did.

This should mean that an OTA update is on the way for this device, but it could also mean that the rest of the Nexus family could see a jump to 5.0.2 as well. As always, we will be on the lookout for OTA .zips and will pass those along as they come in.  (more…)
