Game Stop taking pre-orders for Google Nexus 7
Known mostly as the place to trade in your old and unused video games, Game Stop has expanded into the buying and selling of mobile devices. The stores have already started buying and selling Apple iPhones and Apple iPads along with Android tablets. With the introduction of the Google Nexus 7 on Wednesday, Game Stop has announced that it is accepting pre-orders for the Android 4.1 powered tablet, manufactured by ASUS. And in a smart move designed to grab some Google Nexus 7 business away from the more traditional retailers, Game Stop will tack on 30% to whatever accepted items you bring into the stores to use as trade toward the purchase of the tablet. That includes old video games, hardware, software, accessories, Apple iPhones and Apple iPads and other Android tablets. The Google Nexus 7, with 16GB of storage, will launch during the middle of next month at a price of $249.

Game Stop 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.
