The 2013 Nexus 7 tablet was launched for a price that was $30 more than what its predecessor sold for. That might be explained by the higher-end specs, but for some this still was an unfortunate thing to have happened.
Well, those people can now hurry and buy a Nexus 7, because starting today it can be yours for just $199.99 – just like the 2012 edition always was. The caveat here is that you have to skip the Play Store and go directly to Amazon, Best Buy, or Ebay. All of these retailers are now offering the Asus-made Nexus 7 $30 cheaper than they used to.
Sure, that’s not a huge amount to save, but it’s something nevertheless. And now that this device has gone below the $100 psychological threshold, who knows what sales records it will break…
The Asus Nexus 7 from 2013 comes with a 7-inch 1,920×1,200 touchscreen, a 1.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a 5 MP rear camera, a 1.2 MP front camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, GPS, and a 3,950 mAh battery. It already runs Android 4.4 KitKat (if not from the box, then via a software update that should pop up once you power it on for the first time).
