Cheapest Google Nexus 7 tablet down to £130

(Update: the product now appears to be out of stock)

Studentcomputers, which is part of the Box group, is currently selling the Google Nexus 7 tablet (16GB version) for a mere £130 excluding delivery.

The tablet is an open box model which means that it is part of a mix of ex-display and cancelled orders. The most important thing is that the products are in an “as new” condition and have a 12-months return-to-base warranty.

The Nexus 7 tablet is powered by an Nvidia Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz. That’s a quad-core model based on the Cortex-A9 architecture. Other features include 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 7in 1,280 x 800 pixel capacitive IPS display, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, Wi-Fi, a 1.2-megapixel camera, NFC and much more.

You won’t however get a rear camera or a microSD card slot. You can check out the review of the Google Nexus 7 tablet here.

Google is expected to launch the follow up of this tablet fairly soon, one which is expected to be based on a Qualcomm-based SoC.

The device only weighs 340g and is a mere 10.5mm thick. Other rivals to the Google Nexus 7 include the Acer Iconia B1 (which is cheaper and has a slower processor) and the Archos 80 Titanium (cheaper, slower processor and lower resolution).

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.
