  • I just bought one from staples with that 50 off coupon, hopefully they'll price match and let me reuse the coupon!
  • I bought mine less then a week ago also from staples using the 50$ off.... How do Staples coupons and rebates contribute to the Staples price? All coupons and rebates (including Easy Rebates, instant rebates or savings, and Staples or manufacturer mail–in rebates) are deducted from the price of the Staples product when calculating a price match.
  • I just got back from staples, they said the same thing and it rang up for the same price I paid originally :( was worth a shot!
  • Same here! Glad I got it when I did. Let's just hope it doesn't go down to $150 or lower later on with high availability. Posted via Android Central App
  • 16gb for a tablet what a joke. Posted via Android Central App via bad azz VZW LG G2 ROOTED!
  • I got rid of my 32 when I realized that I was only using a total of 9 gb of space.
  • I have a ton of room on my 16 still. Part of it is the small system partition.
  • The real joke is the amount we have to pay for them to add another $3 (their cost) worth of memory.
  • $40 difference? Considerably better than what their competitors are doing. Why would anyone buy the the 16gb version if they were the same price? Posted via Android Central App
  • Exactly, that's part of the scam as far as I'm concerned, they're functionally very different storage wise, but cost wise they are almost identical in the grand scheme of things. Until some company decides they don't want to make tons better margins on the higher storage version (which will never happen) this is how it will be because they can get away with it. On the flip side of things it could be that they're breaking even (or losing) on the 16 GB version and the 25% increase in price on the 32 GB (from a 1-2% increase in cost) is where they make money. This is a likely scenario for Google considering their main goal is to get devices in peoples hands to drive profits/sales elsewhere.
  • Lol I have a 32gb tablet, talk about a waste of money. The only thing I store on it are apps, everything else I stream. I will always choose the cheaper model with less storage when choosing a tablet.
  • I have a 32GB Nexus 7 and have just over 21GB free. Not everyone needs that space.
  • Games and Videos are the biggest space taker for me(3.85GB free on my 32GB), if you don't have much of either then you won't need the 32GB version.
  • Exactly why I purchased the 32. Lots of big games will be loaded onto it. And I'll be able to free up space on my N4. Which is almost out of space. Posted via Android Central App
  • I just ordered the 32Gb. I've been using the original 8Gb Nexus 7 since it was first released, and have had to regularly purge programs and data over space issues. Time will tell if it's overkill, but I've been living long enough with the downsides of insufficient storage.
  • No, but it's there when I do.
  • Not everyone needs that much space. I only use about 3GB on mine. And if I wanted more to store movies and stuff that I don’t use all that often, I use a flash drive and a USB otg cable. Posted via Android Central App
  • And an app that isn't on the device when you buy it. Also, you can't buy the cable in a store.
    (The one I got from Amazon didn't work) Why doesn't the Surface tablet need an OTG cable?
  • Micro center has otg and mhl cables. Posted via Android Central App
  • Looks like you got told, son.
  • +1
  • I actually splurged for the 32GB N5 but NOT for the Nexus 7, went with 16GB N7 2013... USB OTG or Meenova's micro SD reader are much more reasonable substitutes for internal storage on a tablet, not so much on my phone where hooking up something to it isn't always practical.
  • Sold! Sent from my Motorola side view pager 4-5683-968
  • Best Buy is showing this same price on their website too.
  • Is there any place selling the LTE version at a discount? I can't find it anywhere.
  • Plus the savings on tax makes it well worth going through Amazon Sent from my LG G2 via Android Central App
  • I just bought a Nexus 7 from Amazon 5 days ago for the original price. Called them up and they are refunding me the difference. This is the reason I buy from Amazon. Great customer service.
  • I didn't think they would do a price guarantee if the price was lowered? Paid $259 for one yesterday. Trying to cancel that order and bought one at $239 today. Posted via Android Central App
  • I didn't know if they would either. I just thought I might as well try. Spoke to a customer rep and they will honor the lowered price for 7 days. Refunding the difference back to my bank account.
  • I have had many great customer service experiences with amazon over the years which is one of the reasons I buy almost everything on amazon. Posted via Android Central App
  • Their official policy is actually that they won't do this, and if you go thru chat they'll often shoot you down... Phone reps still do it all the time though.
  • can you get Staples to PM Amazon?
  • Yes Staples will PM Amazon. Says on their website they do. Posted via Android Central App
  • Glad it's you writing, if Alex had said "doesn't require you to even put pants on," it would've been TMI overload. Splattered for your amusement... via the AC App
  • Maybe you will get one whose screen works.
  • Just got my 32GB for $239. Prime shipping and no tax here. Early xmas for me. :)
  • I just got my Nexus 7 for $175 after tax & shipping "like new" through amazon warehouse. It was pretty much brand new, and even in original packaging. Will use it for reading purposes.
  • Should I buy this tablet to replace my old original Galaxy Tab 10.1? I have a smartphone and laptop and enough money left over to buy it but not sure if I should. Help!
  • Yup best buy is selling the nexus 7 at the same price just saw the updated prices at our local store :D
  • I love my nexus 7. Been good to me. Long road trips and a daughter obsessed with Dora the Explorer so many movies downloaded. I make good use of 32gb Posted via Android Central App
  • Too bad Google does not give you updates in a timely manner. My 2012 Nexus 7 is still stuck on 4.3 Posted via Android Central App
