As the Nexus 7 2013 rapidly closes in on its one-year anniversary and an 8 or 9-inch follow-up is likely mere weeks away from a formal introduction, I’m guessing not many of you still see the point of purchasing a second-gen N7.
But if the N9 indeed materializes with a large, high-res display and top-of-the-line 64-bit processor, odds are it’ll start at a good 100 bucks north of N7 2013’s list price. Maybe higher. Besides, 9 inches is a bit too much for some.
Bottom line, there are plenty of reasons last year’s Nexus 7 should stick around, especially if prices keep dropping. Available at $270 back in the day, the 32 GB Wi-Fi-only flavor now goes for $230 or so via retailers like Amazon, and $189.99 on eBay.
I know, I know, eBay isn’t exactly the safest place to buy gadgets from. But this particular listing belongs to topelectronicdeals, a top-rated seller with 99.5% positive feedback, and the N7 copies offered on the cheap are brand new units.
No refurb, no risks, and you even get the manufacturer’s standard one-year warranty. Plus, free shipping stateside. And a 30-day money back guarantee, courtesy of eBay. Pretty sweet deal for whoever put off boarding the N7 2013 bandwagon so long.
