Update 3/23/13: The deal is back yet again today.

Update 12/01/12: It's back one more time.

That headline seem oddly familiar? It should, because the same seller had an identical deal going about a week ago. And now it's back.

For today only, you can get a brand new, in box 32GB Nexus 7 for $229 shipped. That's your price out the door - unless you live in New Jersey, that is. In that case, you'll also have to fork over some sales tax. Sorry, guys.

Still, that's quite a bit cheaper than you'll get it directly from Google. So, you should probably go head and hop on this one - once they're gone, they're gone.

Unless it comes back again next week, of course.

    This is just a big slap to my face for being an early adopter. Twice the storage for nearly $50 less than what I paid without factoring in the $25 credit.

      Just think, if it wasnt for early adopters like us, The Nexus 7 would not have been the success it has been and Google wouldn't have seen a need to release a 32GB version.

      Yes it sucks but think of it this way, if something happens to your N7 and you decide to replace it, you can either get the 16GB for the 8GB price, or 32GB for the 16GB price. And if you never have to replace your N7, count yourself even luckier.

      • nhizzat

        Thanks for providing a silver lining lol.

        I'm starting to see lines shoot across my screen so I might have to see what Google will offer. I have no idea how to replicate the issue, but I notice it most when I'm looking at something with a white background.

        • smithj33

          This is what happens when people complain. Google is always watching.....

    • Drayon

      Should I also cry when a shop offers a discount on a product I just bought somewhere else?
      With your logic all products are unable to have a price drop.

      • nhizzat

        Did you give Apple a pass with the iPhone 4/4S fiasco? The iPad 3 and the "New" iPad? Or did you read the articles with a shit-eating grin because you got some joy out of seeing Apple screw over their own users and customers?

        My gripe isn't with the price drop. It's the combination of a superior product being released a mere 3-4 months after its initial release for the same price. If this were just a price drop, then I'd have no issues whatsoever. But introducing the same tablet, only with more storage, and pricing it at what the 16GB was initially offered at irks me.

        • Drayon

          If google would have released a nexus 7 2nd gen I would be more likely to agree with your, but they didn't.
          And a 16gb increase in storage makes it a superior product? What? If 32gb is so improtant for you? Why did you buy it in the first place?

          And big price drops happen all the time.
          I bought my htc one x for 550 euro, 5-6 months later it can be bought for 430. A price difference of 120, and I don't cry about it. Because I know it's an awesome device and I want htc to sell much more of them than they currently do.
          If htc needs to lower the price to be able to sell more, than so be it.

          • John O’Connor

            Indeed price reductions happen all the time... When I bought my latest luxury mattress set (yes, a bed) at a steal of a price,TWO DAYS later, an instant manufacturer coupon discounted it by over $350! It's a way of life so why bi#$% about it people?

    • Terry Bell

      I don't think its a slap in the face for being an early adopter. It is what being an early adopter is all about. You got to be cool and be part of a small group that had the coolest toy for a short amount of time. You pay a price for that.

      • nhizzat

        I didn't buy this tablet to be "exclusively" cool. I bought it because it fit my needs and budget perfectly, at the time.

        • Simon Belmont

          So, you got exactly what you wanted then. It fit your needs and your budget at the time.

          Time moves on and prices change. If everything was static, the world would be a boring place.

    • DrewNusser

      With that logic there are gonna be a lot of pissed of consumers come Black Friday.

      • nhizzat

        There already are a lot of pissed consumers...as well as a lot of apologists.

        • DrewNusser

          Not really. Think about what you're saying. You just got a tablet that has won multiple awards for tablet/device of the year, and got it for an amazing price. Now you're complaining that its price dropped a little bit on a sale. If you wanted the best Android tablet last year, you would have paid a lot more and it wouldn't have been near the quality. Everything goes on sale from time to time. You still got a great deal. Others might get a slightly better deal. Deal with it.

    • cosmic

      You must be new to the early adopter scene, because this is a pretty common situation.

      • nhizzat

        It'd be pretty common if I were in the iOS camp. Not so much Android.

        • smithj33

          Your comment makes no sense.

      • BluMeany

        I think you hit the nail on the head. It's the price you pay for having to have things NOW NOW NOW. Meanwhile, the patient masses reap the benefits of lower prices, bug fixes, better hardware, etc.

    • Simon Belmont

      Boohoo. You got to have a Nexus 7 earlier than people who waited it out.

      That was your reward for being an early adopter. Plus you got the $25 credit that we didn't get. Deal with it. Move along.

    • smithj33

      Talk to HTC One X owners.

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

    Boo, looks like it sold out rather quickly with 1000 Nexuses sold.

  • DCMAKER

    why do they sell through ebay? ebay is a gigantic rip off and probably adds so much more cost....i just don't get it. Maybe someone on here knows more than i do but i avoid ebay when i can...so is amazon though. fees are huge

    Too bad the seller won't ship to Canada.... For 10 bucks shipping I don't understand the reluctance to ship to a neighbour?

      What is a Canada?

    ...waiting for dailysteals.com to list this at $599, down from $849.

  • KingRando

    No warranty. Don't bother

    • Christopher Saylor

      Wouldn't it be a point of sale warranty? Is there any documentation saying ASUS won't honor a warranty through a third party?

  • htowngtr

    Received one in mail two days ago. Great price. It was bundled with original case and screen protector. My 4 year old is going to find it under the Christmas tree

  • Han

    It says 229$ instead of 299$, which is usually the price for the 3G version, but this one is without mobile data, is it?

    Got bit by the shut up and take my money bug! Even though its Dec 2 I still was able to pick one up at this price.

    "Sorry, guys."
    Sorry??? Shut up and take my money xD

  • Adam Miah

    Can I buy this from the UK?

  • Angel Penabad

    I see N7 as a deal many times but I never spot a N10 deal. Are we expecting a N7 successor at Google I/O? I can't understand how can there be such deals if it isn't because Asus/Google selling last batches of their stock. Honestly, I can't understand it, they are brand new.

  • Luis Augusto Fretes Cuevas

    Is it really worth it? I mean, the Nexus 7 is surely going to get replaced soon. Worst case scenario in July.
