UK Newspaper Offers Subscribers £50 Nexus 7

Tablets are made for consuming content and the UK's Times newspaper is hoping to tempt folks into subscribing to the newspaper by offering a discounted Android tablet along with its subscription.

The offer involves an 18-month subscription at a price of £17.33 per month plus an extra £50 for Google's 32GB Nexus 7. The total for the subscription and tablet works out to just shy of £362. If you feel like saving yourself almost £63, you can opt for the up-front option that will see you fork over a one-off payment of £299.

The regular price of the Nexus 7 is £199 (before retailer-specific discounts, etc.), so this deal is really only worth your while if you are already planning to subscribe to the Times Digital Pack subscription for a year and a half or if that sounds like something you might be interested in.

For those that need a refresher, the Nexus 7 packs 32GB of storage, a 7-inch, 1280 x 800 HD display, Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 processor under the hood alongside a 12-core GPU and 1GB RAM. The tablet also has 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi (there's no 3G or 4G connectivity here), as well as NFC, GPS, a gyroscope, an accelerometer, a mic, and a 1.2-megapixel camera on the front of the tablet.
