Google has started taking pre-orders for the Nexus 7, offering would-be buyers the chance to get on board from just under £160.
The search giant is selling the 8GB, entry-level iteration of its tablet for £159 when bought from its official site. If you want the 16GB version, you’re looking at an outlay of £199.
The price includes £15 of credit to spend in the Google Play store, as well as some as-yet-unspecified bundled content. We do know this includes the execrable Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but we’re not about to let that put us off. Not at this price point, anyway.
According to Google, orders taken now will be despatched within two to three weeks. So you’re looking at late July at the latest date that you’ll be holding your Nexus 7 in your hands.
Unveiled yesterday, Google’s first-ever own-branded tablet is also the first-ever Android device to run the new Jellybean version of the operating system.
Standout specs take in a seven-inch HD screen, a Tegra 3 quad-core processor and a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera for video calls.
