Tesco selling 16GB Google Nexus 7 for £180

For a limited period, you can get the Google Nexus 7 for as little as £180, a £19 discount off the suggested retail price - and you still get £15 to spend on Google’s Play Store as well 199 clubcard points. You will need to buy an electrical item that costs more than £1 then use the code TDX-KNHP at checkout.

The device was unveiled in July 2012 and managed to seriously shake up the Android tablet market by forcing manufacturers to cut prices and align themselves on Google’s price.

Google, however, has been smart enough to make the tablet enticing enough to attract a mass audience while leaving out key features that make it easy for other vendors to add them for a fee.

The Nexus 7 comes with 16GB, an Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-chip, a 4-core monster, clocked at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a 7in 1,280 x 800 resolution, a front facing camera, a microUSB port, a 2-in-1 audio jack and nearly 10 hours of battery life.

There’s no rear camera unfortunately but at nearly 340g and 10.45mm, the tablet is portable enough to be slipped into a (rather deep) jean back pocket. You can read our review of the Google Nexus 7 tablet and why how it compared to the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0.
