New Google Nexus 7 tablet 4G goes on sale for £269

Want to get your hands on the new Google Nexus 7 4G? Head over to Shopdirect’s Very where the tablet is apparently available for £299 (with delivery within three days). Add another £4 for delivery but you should also be able to whack 10 per cent off your first credit order or by using the code 3PTPY. We haven’t tried either so cannot vouch for these methods. But a £30 discount is appealing either way.

We already knew that the new Google Nexus 7 4G would be available for £299 while the 16GB Wi-Fi version carries the same SRP as the original version at £199. You can check out our review of the Google Nexus 7 sans 4G here (and that of the original tablet here) and the actual launch event here.

I noted late last month that the new Nexus 7 tablet is a repackaged version of the LG Nexus 4 smartphone as it has the same processor as the latter and share a few other common points as well. At £269, the Google Nexus 7 4G is not only the cheapest 4G tablet on the market but also one of the cheapest 4G mobile devices as well.

Like its predecessor, the tablet aims to disrupt the market by providing with a compelling offer and forcing other manufacturers to follow its lead or exit altogether. To date though, Samsung has managed to produce fairly unimpressive tablets (Galaxy Tab 3 and Galaxy Tab 2) without seemingly feeling the heat.
