Nexus 7

Forget, for the moment, that the Nexus 7 probably is the most successful Android tablet to date, and that you can pick one up for just $199. And that if you travel, say, to Europe, there's a better than average chance that you'll be taking your tablet with you. But let's say you left yours at home for whatever reason -- or you've yet to purchase one, or maybe you want to give the Nexus 10 a shot. XCom Global, the company that can hook you up with Mifi service in some 170 countries worldwide, is now offering Nexus 7 rentals for $1 a day. That's an introductory price, and costs will bump up to $2 a day for the Nexus 7 and $3 a day for the Nexus 10.

That, of course, is added on to whatever you're paying XCom for data as well. Full presser's after the break.

boy if they did this with the nexus 4 I would rent one for a week for $10 just to see if it would work in my area. Im pretty sure I don't get T-Mobile, and I just dont know how AT&T will fare were I live.

This is brilliant. Perfect concept for people wanting to "test drive" a device they may be on the fence about.

Is there anyway to rent a Nexus 7 or 10 without leaving the U.S.? i cant find anything on there website about locally renting a unit.

Any tips guys?

Am I the only one who thought this was a video game rental for "XCOM: Global Offensive"?
