Game Stop taking pre-orders for Google Nexus 7
has been accepting Android tablets as trade, paying as much as $200 cash or $250 in-store credit depending on the model, memory size and condition of the device. The retailer also offers a trade in program for iDevices as well. With many game players now using their smartphone or tablet for game play on the road, the mobile electronics business feels like a perfect fit for Game Stop.

Are they making a 16GB tablet? I was under the impression that it was only 8GB with no expandable memory.

Yep! The 16GB is $249. I think I might hop on this deal. Trade-in my Kindle Fire (or sell it to some sucker for full retail value), and with a few trade-ins, I might walk out without paying an arm and a leg. Nice.

But the REAL questions is........ Will Gamestop have these on Day 1 of the release? Or will they have to ship as well like Google. Because I'd rather pre-order with Gamestop and go pick it up the day it releases than wait 2 more days after it releases to show up at my door for an extra $15.
