Deal: Google Nexus 7 tablet down to £119

If you want to grab the cheapest quad-core tablet on the market, then head over to the eBay outlet from Tesco to have a peep at the Google Nexus 7 (build by Asus), one that costs a mere £119 including free delivery. This is a refurbished model but it still comes with a 12-month warranty and a £40+ discount on the suggested retail price.

The device comes with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 system-on-chip clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 7in 1,280 x 800 pixels display, stock Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a front facing 1.2-megapixel camera and up to 10 hours battery life.

The arrival of the Google Nexus 7 last year change the market dynamics in the tablet ecosystem. Compared to competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, it offered significantly more oomph for much less money. It also forced other companies like Acer to up their game.

The Nexus 7 was followed by the Google Nexus 4 and the Google Nexus 10. It is expected to be replaced by a new tablet although we wondered whether the Asus MemoPad HD isn't actually the successor of the Nexus 7, cheaper and better.
