A quick heads up that Verizon's got its LTE-capable Nexus 7 listed at just $49 with a two-year contract. Not necessarily a route we'd recommend at this point, more than halfway through the tablet's cycle (assuming a refresh this year, anyway). But if you've just got to get one and are looking to do so as cheaply as possible — and don't mind signing a contract to do so — this might work for ya.

Thanks, Nicholas

Verizon's Nexus 7 just $49 on contract

Why? Signing a contract on a tablet makes no sense since you can already share your data via tethering which is included on their new plans.

+1 million.

If you have a share plan on Verizon, this makes perfect sense. $10/month to add it to your plan x24 months = $240, +$49 for the price on contract = $289. That's $61 cheaper than buying it outright from Google Play, and you can pay it off over two years instead of all at once.

True, but by the time you're finished paying, two years have passed. Oh yeah that happens with phones too now.

Anyway, I think financing a phone makes more sense than financing a tablet at half the price. But then again Verizon customers don't mind paying extra for the privilege of being allowed to be on their network.

But it will drain your tabelt more. Besides, it's all about the Nexus 10. It doesn't get enough love. Everyone focuses on it's little sexless sibling. I LOVE MY NEXUS TEN. Plus I have TMO and tethering on my S4.

Yup +1, i waited and waited... ended up with a tab pro 10.1, i couldnt even fathom the idea of buying an 18 month old Nexus 10 now

I get the "refresh" for smartphones, but why tablets? At least in my experience, my tablet is 70% for web browsing, 28% for watching Netflix via Chromecast, and 2% other stuff. I really only use my tablet for its big screen, all my intense stuff is on my S4.

Your usage doesn't apply to everyone else.

Verizon is trying to move stock of a soon to be (last year) device that they finally allowed on their network. Only problem with that is the people that are looking for this device are techies, that know better than to put their body part through the bars of the tiger cage at the zoo. (See what I did there: TigerBlood!)

Went would anyone take a Nexus device on a two year contract? That defeats everything that Google are trying to do with these. Madness.

Actually I might grab one and sell my wi-fi N7.
Cheaper than buying the new one (w 24 mos fees included) and def better customer service - i hate Asus return policy (problems with blue pixels on the screen).
