While many think 8GB and even 16GB of storage wasn’t enough for their tablet needs, there are some deals that might make purchasing the lower capacity Nexus 7 tablets a bit irresistible. With the Nexus 7 32GB on its way it looks like some retailers are trying to clear stock, and Staples is the latest to offer an eye-popping deal.
Folks at SlickDeals are reporting that the retailer is selling the 8GB Nexus 7 for a mere $160 in its stores. This is by far one of the most attractive prices we’ve seen for this tablet. With no microSD card slot to make up for the mere 8GB of internal storage some of you might still be a bit turned off, but for this price we’re sure a couple of you “on the fence” folks will find a way to justify the minuscule amount.
The Nexus 7 features some very beefy internals, including NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 chipset, 1GB of RAM, NFC and more. The 7 inch display makes it a nice, comfortable compromise between phone and the 10-inch tablets that seem to have been popular over the past two years.
If you’re looking for an inexpensive tablet to give someone for Christmas then I don’t see how you can’t consider this deal. Be sure to call your local Staples store to confirm they have them in stock (and for the $160 price tag that will draw most of you in the first place).
