Nexus 7 price slashed to $179.99, could this price cut come ahead of a new model?
The Google Nexus 7 has become the go-to tablet if you are looking for an affordable compact slate, and now, almost a year since its launch, it is becoming even cheaper. Staples has slashed the price of the 32GB Nexus 7 down to $199, and the 16 gig edition only costs $179.

The price cut seems like a good way to clear stock which is something that retailers would want to do ahead of the launch of a next generation Nexus 7 tablet. We have been hearing about a higher resolution display, a Qualcomm chip and the same rock solid battery life in the new Nexus 7, so it could be coming very soon.

Right now, the Nexus 7 offers a 1280 x 800-pixel LCD display and runs on a Tegra 3 quad-core processor with the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on board.

Should you get it now? We would stick around a couple of more weeks as chances are the new Nexus tablet is coming at around the same low prices. If you choose to buy now, you definitely should not regret it, though, the tablet is a steal for the money.

Id wait and see what happens because either way, you wont be disappointed. I have the 32GB version and I love it. The Next-Gen Nexus7 has to be better than the original to remain one of the best selling tablets on the market

Well c'mon already! And you know what? Forget performance, I want the SD600 for the better battery performance. I'm down to it up to $280.

The sd600 has worse battery performance than the s4 pro.

I had a lot of problems with my nexus 7, hope the new one has all the bugs worked out.

$20 for double the storage? Why would anyone buy the 16 GB version?
