Not sure why anyone is thumbs downing it, this (http://slickdeals.net/f/5662898-Nexus-7-32GB-at-Staples-for-234-after-coupon-code-free-shipping-before-tax-online-only) semi popular Staples post was $234 before tax, which will bring it close to $250 in most states.

This has no tax (for most states) + shoprunner..

This is actually a good deal thanks to the no tax and shoprunner shipping.... but i already got a note 2 so no need for something that's 1.5in bigger

Agreed. They probably saw the $234 one and thought this is not a good deal in comparison :(

Buckeyefan 1 12-12-2012 08:29 PM

This needs to hit $199 shipped to be an all around slick deal. $220 shipped would be semi-slick. Anything more - meh. There's just not that much buzz anymore due to lack of deals on this. I think the 8.9" Kindle Fire HD at $249 was miles better than recent Nexus 7 deals. I'm honestly impressed Google has kept this 32GB tablet near retail since its release date. I'd still like to get one, but not over $200. Still using a Nook Color with CM7 and a ton of apps almost daily. What a great tablet. If we use a Nexus 7 half as much as the NC this past year, it will be a hit.

RichLo 12-12-2012 08:49 PM

You can get a Nexus 7 at Newegg with shoprunner with no tax at most states for
249.99

This came up just about the same as the staples deal I missed out on. Thanks a bunch!~

Me too. Sold my NCw/CM7 for $150.00 yesterday & miss it big time, single core though it was/is. I am getting the N7 for my b'day, 12/23, although I already know about it I am sworn to keep it wrapped til then. Everybody in the casa is so broke this year we've decided to play like all our wants that we purchased/received via BF/CM etc, are gifts. Wanna get another NC for rooting & possibly a Nook Glow. Just waiting for another refurb NC deal from B&N. (And a NG deal). TG, none of us have chillun's to provide for!

Really? $240 (and sometimes down to $230) for a 32GB quad core tablet is pretty hard to beat. Never mind Google's that's getting Android updates first.

The Kindle Fire 8.9 while bigger is still a Kindle, loaded with Amazon's slow and bloated software rather than full Android.. If I recall right the new Kindles are fairly locked down too. It's also got just a dual core processor.. so that's sort of the gravy.

pacman777 12-12-2012 09:38 PM

Just bought one and saved an extra 2% from the f w site... this is actually a better deal than the Staples one that was posted for $235 the other day that got lots of thumbs up. No tax and free shipping makes it cheaper than staples. Couldn't wait for the price to get lower as i'm buying this on behalf of mother-in-law who needs it to gift to our 5yr old son for Christmas.

daman22 12-12-2012 09:45 PM

better/safer to buy form newegg or macmall?

Nexus 10 is a dual core, and smokes the 7. You can't go by cores. AMD's quad cores lag behind Intel's dual core chips. My CM7 NC gets free Amazon paid apps all the time. I use the Amazon App Store 10x more than the Play Store. The Kindle Fire 8.9's screen trumps the Nexus 7 and 10 with better blacks, contrast, quality, and no light bleed. Granted the Android experience is best on the Nexus devices.

Read some reviews of the Nook Tablet rooted with 4.0. For $99, that's the Android tablet to have for the money. If you don't need a camera, you can't beat that previous deal.

daman22 12-12-2012 09:51 PM

rather get form a store that has B&M locations, but then Id have to pay tax, and seems they all make sure now no coupons will work on tablets...

While you're right that cores don't necessary equal performance, the Tegra 3 is a lot faster than the OMAP in the Kindle Fire by quite a bit.

The point is you can use the Amazon store just as easily on the N7 as you can the Play store.. you can't say that about the Kindle.

menace33 12-12-2012 10:35 PM

I guess the term "deal" needs to be less subjective and more defined. $10 off is only 4% off. I don't think we'd roll into any store or online ad and oooh and ahhh over a 4% off sale.

loaferz 12-12-2012 10:45 PM

no tax, no shipping. wasn't planning on buying the 32gb, but when the 16 is 227 on the play store with the tax and shipping, makes sense to pay the extra $13 and get twice the storage space. Not the slickest of deals, but it sure helped me out for christmas, thanks OP!

I agree with both of you to an extent. I personally am not sold on the Kindle, mainly due to Amazon's app store. It's slower to push updates for apps than the Play Store. From what I understand they vet more than the Play Store, sort of like Apple does. Take from that what you will. Secondly, It's running an overlay just like the Nook. I don't necessarily agree that the Kindle or Nook have bloat, but the overlay running on top of Android are somewhat clumsy.

I'm curious how well B&N keeps up with Amazon, sort of offering the same services/device. The Nook, as mentioned also lacks an all important front facing camera. Not sure why the newer ones have not integrated one.

Most SlickDealers have a hard enough time posting a deal correctly, much less rooting a device and installing a custom ROM. Sure, I've rooted every Android device I have owned, but it's not something my wife, my parents, or many of my friends will do.

I think each tablet has it's niche. Just depends on what you want. I think the Nexus is nice blend of each.

I think this is an ok deal. If you need one as a gift by Xmas this might be the last chance to get it below MSRP. I think the price will drop at many retailers after Xmas.

LiadL 12-13-2012 06:57 AM

Naysayers gonna naysay. This is good deal, thanks OP.

$10 discount, no tax, free shipping & lack of significant discounts elsewhere.

Where can you get the book tablet for $99?

You can use a $30 off $150 coupon for OfficeMax on the Nexus - I just did it a few days ago online and already received. Got my coupon from eBay (around $5 Buy It Now) and went through with no issues. Free shipping but of course you pay tax; brings it to around $235 - $240 after adding the cost of a purchased coupon + tax, so pretty such same price as this deal.

tehsilly 12-13-2012 07:18 AM

Really Torn between this, the Nook tablet 16gb, and the Nook HD. The Nexus is probably the most appealing to me, but Nook 16gb tablet deals have been popping up for around 120 the last few weeks. SO MANY CHOICES!!! FML!!!!!!

Abraa 12-13-2012 07:38 AM

In for one!

psyphris 12-13-2012 08:43 AM

Really tempted by this... I was hoping for a $179 16gb n7 though. Decisions decisions.

sunspot 12-13-2012 10:23 AM

$274,99 for 32Gb+3G is what I like to see. Figures if going for a tablet over $200 might as well get the whole pack. Can`t decide either, 16Gb is enough if you stay below $200, at the same time with 32Gb you can use that multiuser environment update in v4.2 Android and share the tablet between family members.
