Staples offering massive discounts on Nexus 7, next-gen version coming soon?
Staples slashed the price of both the 16GB and 32GB variants of the Nexus 7, fueling speculation that the second-generation Nexus 7 tablet will launch soon.
Thanks to Staples' price cut on the device, consumers can now purchase the 16GB Nexus 7 for $179, which is a discount of $20. Alternately, the 32GB variant of the ASUS-made tablet has a $50 discount, which means those interested can pick it up for $199.
The sudden price cuts on the Nexus 7 have prompted speculation that Google will soon announce the much-awaited Nexus 7 successor. Considering that the first-generation tablet was announced in June 2012 and released a month later in July, a yearly product cycle seems quiet logical. Moreover, retailers usually discount older products when a new version of the device is expected to launch soon, which could mean that Staples is clearing out older inventory in anticipation of the next Nexus 7 iteration.
It will be interesting to see if other retailers, including brick and mortar stores, follow suit and offer substantial discounts on the tablet as well.
Whether Staples is indeed prepping for the second-generation Nexus 7 remains to be seen. It may just be trying to appeal to more customers, but the deal is attractive nonetheless. Considering that Google sells the 16GB and 32GB models of the Nexus 7 for $199.99 and $249.99, respectively, on its Play Store, the Staples' offer is worth considering.
The Nexus 7 tablet sports a 7-inch display with an 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, with a pixel dennsity of 216 pixels per inch (ppi). The Nexus 7 is available in either 16GB or 32 GB internal storage configurations and has 1GB of RAM. It packs a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and is Wi-Fi and NFC enabled. The tablet comes pre-loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
