Carphone Warehouse cuts 32GB Nexus 7, Galaxy Tab 2 prices

UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has announced several tablet price cuts today, including two leading budget Android tablets, the Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0. ASUS and Google's newly-launched 32GB Nexus tablet goes on sale from today at £189, £10 cheaper than most retailers, including the UK Google Play Store. Similarly, the Wifi-only, 8GB 7-inch Galaxy Tab 2 will go on sale at Carphone Warehouse for £149. That'll get you a dual-core, ICS-based tablet which also boasts a rear camera, unlike the Nexus

In addition, Apple's short-lived third-gen iPad has been cut by £40 to £359. The new Tab 2 prices are live on Carphone's site right now, though both Nexus 7 and iPad remain at their previous price points for the moment.

Carphone Warehouse offers these price reductions as part of its push to "offer the lowest prices on tablets on the high street." With the holidays looming, we're sure to see more competitive deals emerge online and in brick-and-mortar retailers in the weeks ahead.

  • You realise they have cut the 16GB to £189, not the 32GB, right?
  • Err, says on the CPW site that 16gig is £189 and 32 is £195
  • 32GB will be reduced later today. As we said, the price for the N7 hasn't changed just yet
  • I do wonder if Google and ASUS will agree to produce a 3G version soon. A reasonably priced 7 inch tablet seem better suited to people on the move than say a 10 inch tablet. Making a 3G Nexus 7 seem in tune with other products in the Nexus line.
  • They've already made a Nexus 7 with 3G,
  • Why would anyone need a 3G tablet if they have FoxFI?
  • Because FoxFi and most HTC or carrier phones aren't compatible.
