New Nexus 7 Now Available in the UK for £200

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 5 comments

Say hello to the new Nexus 7!

Way back in April, we heard rumors that Google was going to release a new version of the Nexus 7. In late July, after months of rumors, the company finally announced the second generation of its 7-inch tablet. However, while the tablet was available almost immediately in the States, folks in the UK were forced to wait a bit longer for their Nexus fix.

 

The good news is that the wait is over -- the new Nexus 7 is here. A month after its unveiling, the device is now on sale in the UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Japan. UK pricing is set at £200 for the entry-level model with 16 GB of storage. The 32 GB version will set you back another £40 with its £240 price tag. Those looking for some cellular connectivity can snag the LTE model from O2 for £320, but that won't be available for another couple of weeks.

The all new Nexus 7 features a 7.02-inch 1920 x 1200 1080p HD display (323 ppi) with scratch-resistant Corning glass, a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320 400 MHz graphics, 2 GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel camera, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16 GB of storage, dual-band WiFi (2.4 GHz/5 GHz) 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC, a 3,950 mAh battery, and Micro USB with SlimPort-enabled (meaning it can output HDMI video and audio through the microUSB port thanks to DisplayPort technology and a special microUSB-to-HDMI adapter). The whole show is running on the newest release of Android, Android 4.3.

    Yep, we regularly get screwed on electronics purchases. Though our price is tax inclusive (I'm not sure if it is over in the States?) which bungs an additional 20% on right away, making the pre-tax price ~$248.

    I'm not sure what the rest of the difference is.
