Nexus 7 16GB price slashed to $199
The 16GB Nexus 7 has now officially gone down in price to the quite amazing $199. The price, previously reserved for the 8GB Nexus 7, makes way for the 32GB 7-inch Nexus tablet to hit the sweet $249 spot.

Pictures from major U.S. retailers like Office Depot and GameStop have leaked out and this is as close to official as it gets.

This puts Google’s Nexus 7 in an extremely favorable position against the 7.85-inch Apple’s iPad mini, which goes on sale in a couple of days for $329 for a Wi-Fi-only version.

So even though you don’t get to see a Google event live today because of that Frankenstorm that hurricane Sandy is forming to be, you still have the good news. Which one would you buy, the Nexus 7 or iPad mini?

"Google means consumers first". It is not true. This pricing is to break the market domination of Apple iPAD. But consumer can benefit from this.

Currently on the Playstore it lists the Nexus 7 as unavailible.
At least for me it is.
I guess it is a sign that they are changing something.

True they said the 8GB model was already being sold at cost, if they drop 16 to that and have a 32, either they are selling them underpriced, or the components in the device became cheaper.
