As we mentioned in our Google Nexus 7 launch article, the stock Android tablet set to take on the Amazon Kindle Fire and other budget tablets will be available for £159 and £199 for the 8 and 16 GB models respectively. If you want to order your Nexus 7 directly from Google you can do that from here. However, there will be other options for UK consumers.
The 16 GB model will be available from retailer chains such as PC World, Comet, Tesco, Ebuyer and Carphone Warehouse for the same £199 price point from July 27th. This move will give customers much needed exposure to Android tablets in a place where Apple’s iPad currently dominates. The cheaper 8 GB model will be exclusive to the Google Play Store.
As a refresher the Google Nexus 7 is manufactured by ASUS and is a Nexus device, meaning it will get software updates straight from Google without any delays. It has a 7 inch IPS display with a 1280×800 resolution and NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor.
KitGuru says: The addition of the Nexus 7 in retail stores will be sure to increase its popularity in the eyes of Mr and Mrs Smith.
