Ordering online is not something that everyone wants to do, for folks like myself the instant gratification of purchasing and taking home the same day is rather important. GameStop has announced that they will be selling the Nexus 7 in stores and they have began their pre-ordering process as well. To spice up the deal, and bring folks in they will be accepting trade ins on other tablets, and any trade ins that are done specifically towards the purchase of the Nexus 7 will gain you an extra 30% in store value. GameStop understands that Android tablets are becoming increasingly popular, and many gaming customers are looking towards the purchase of tablets for their on the go experience, and they hope to capitalize on this with offering the Nexus 7 in store instead of having customers have to wait to purchase it online. So, will you be ordering from Google Play, or looking for some old items to trade in and grabbing one from GameStop?
