Carphone Warehouse kicks off Nexus 7 sales on Friday

Carphone Warehouse kicks off Nexus 7 sales on Friday
The Google Nexus 7 is probably the greatest thing to happen to tablets after the iPad - it brought high-end specs to affordable slates and emphasized quality despite the low price, but so far demand for it was so high it sold out in many stores. In the UK, it’s just about to launch on the country’s largest retailer Carphone Warehouse.

The European debut of the Nexus 7 will happen on July 27th in the UK, and the price is set at £199, or $310. The price should be for the most basic, 8 gig version of the tablet, but the retailer doesn’t specify in the annonucement. Still, that’s a hefty 50% more than the US price, but don’t be too surprised - electronics on the Old continent tend to be more expensive due to a number of factors.

Interestingly, Carphone Warehouse will sell the Nexus 7 off contract and on a tethered contract. The Nexus 7 doesn’t have cellular connectivity but you can use your smartphone data with Wi-Fi tethering. Such an option will let you have the device free at launch but you’d need to pay £20.50, or nearly $32, a month for tethering.
