google-nexus-7-2

If you haven't already bought a Nexus 7, you're missing out. It's easily the best Android tablet on the market, bar none. For today only, you can score a 16GB Nexus 7 with official case and free shipping for $250. While the price isn't any different than the 16GB version directly from the Play Store, at least you're getting some freebies out of the deal - roughly a $30(ish) value.

One notable thing about this deal is that you have the choice of either a gray or blue case, the latter of which hasn't even arrived in the Play Store yet. Some leaked slides showed off the official N7 case in a multitude of colors, but this is the first time we've actually seen anything aside from the gray one available for purchase. Neat.

    but buying via Google Play Store gets you $25 free Google Play credits. Really depends on which you would value more.

      No, you get the $25 just for buying the nexus 7.

      You get the $25 for signing in - it shouldn't matter where you buy.

        Canada as well :(

    If it breaks or has defective screen would you still return it to google play store or to adorama?

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Probably Adorama for the duration of the return policy (there's a big Return Policy section in the auction). After that - standard manufacturer's warranty, so probably Google.

        actually Asus they make the hardware.

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          You're right, ASUS handles warranty issues for Nexus 7s purchased from outside the Play Store: http://support.google.com/googleplay/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=2662734. You still go through Google if you bought it via the Play Store though, but then they just set it up with ASUS anyway. Thanks for the note.

    This is true for Amazon, but how does this apply to eBay? Link?

    If your seller is in CA and is a proper business, they've always collected sales tax from me.

    • Alex Murphy

      The law applies to all e-commerce sites.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        No, it doesn't apply to eBay because it's just a marketplace, not a seller. http://www.cnbc.com/id/49023713

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Good point. Amazon is charging tax because it has affiliates in cali and it's the one doing the sales. eBay, on the other hand, is just a mediator - the tax is charged by the seller based on their location, which is NJ. So unless Adorama has offices in CA and follows CA laws closely, they won't charge tax tomorrow. We're taking this out of the article.

      • lamenting

        No, Amazon is charging tax because lawmakers are forcing them to. They never wanted to charge sales tax in CA, nor anywhere else.

        http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/13/amazon-tax-california-res_n_1882441.html

        "Lawmakers have long complained that the increasingly popular e-retailer was depriving the state of millions of dollars by refusing to charge taxes at checkout. But Amazon said it was shielded by a 1992 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that prohibits states from forcing businesses without a physical presence in the area to collect sales tax.

        The e-commerce giant said it did not have a physical presence in California because it does not have warehouses or other buildings here.

        Similar fights have played out in other states, with Amazon sometimes shuttering distribution centers and canceling contracts to be able to continue selling tax-free goods."

    ASUS cases for the nexus 7 are also available at fnac.com for europeans (I don't know whether they ship to US).

  • Sam H

    Its an ok blue, we have it here in the UK already at the store I work at but I would much rather get the grey instead.

    I've been on the fence about this tabet for a while, but I finally bought it. They sold out of the gray case, though, so I got stuck with the blue. I really wonder why they chose that color
