(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).
