The Google Nexus 7 is up for grabs now on contract plans from Three, amid severe stock shortages of the latest crop of Nexus-branded devices.
Three is selling the Android 4.1-toting, 8GB edition of the tablet for £19.99 per month, plus an upfront fee of £49 to cover the cost of the device. This includes a data allowance of 5GB per month.
Manufactured by Asus on Google’s behalf, the Nexus 7 teams a seven-inch scratch-resistant display with a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and an unadorned, vanilla version of the latest Android Jelly Bean.
A rear-facing camera, 3G support and microSD card slot are also present and correct, as is the Siri-challenging Google Now voice commands app and the Google Chrome browser.
The in-demand device launched earlier this month and, along with the LG Nexus 4 smartphone, sold out within half an hour from the Google Play store.
