Carphone Warehouse cuts price of 32GB Nexus 7 and more

Carphone Warehouse has announced that it has cut the price of three leading tablets in the build-up to Christmas. The online retailer released a statement saying that it aims to offer the lowest tablet prices on the high street.

It has already cut the price of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 to as little as £119, the 16GB iPad 3 to £359 and the 32GB Google Nexus, which was launched two weeks ago, down to £189 (though it currently still appears on the website for £195), a £10.99 (or 5.45 per cent) discount from the official SRP. The only major difference between the Nexus models is the jump in storage capacity.

Otherwise, there’s the same quad-core, Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-chip, clocked at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM, a 7in, 1,280 x 800 display with Gorilla Glass, a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microUSB port but no microSD one and no HDMI port as well.

The Nexus 7 single-handedly started a revolution in the small format Android tablet sector, which saw prices tumble.

It is likely that a similar thing will happen with the impending launch of the Nexus 10, which will sport a Cortex-A15 core and a 4-megapixel display.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
