An extra $50 will get you an cellular-capable 32GB Nexus 7. That’s a pretty impressive bargain, and keeps Google’s aggressive bottom-dollar approach in tact. It also makes Apple’s iPad mini with cellular look insanely inflated. A comparable 32GB iPad mini with cellular sells for $559. The best part is that Google’s tab, at just $299, comes unlocked with an AT&T SIM (HSPA+).
The deal is currently available now, and delivers in 3-5 business days. Not bad, not bad at all. Think of the value you’re getting here: Android’s best ever tablet, great specs, the latest version of Jelly Bean, and cellular capabilities for a fraction of a competitor’s price. Nothing externally has been altered to make this iteration of the Nexus 7 any different from the one that hit over the summer, but the addition of cellular will likely make a huge difference for plenty of folks.
Google has impeccable timing, as it rounds out the search giant’s excellent Nexus portfolio (Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10) quite nicely. And it’s hitting just before the holiday season, which will no doubt make for a few extra thousand sales. Better scoop one up quick.
