The second generation Nexus 7 (2013) is one of the most attractive and cheaply priced Android tablets in the market right now. The Nexus 7 (2013) runs on a quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU and packs a 1200×1920 resolution display and has 2GB of RAM. If you want to know more about the Nexus 7 (2013), read my review.
The Nexus 7 (2013)’s retail price of $229.99 for the basic 16GB variant makes it a hot-selling tablet but recently, it appears that online stores have offered discounts on the tablet. The reason for the reduction in price is not clear but it could have been triggered by the release of the much awaited Apple iPad mini 2 with retina display. Online stores like Best Buy, Amazon, and Ebay are selling the Nexus 7 (2013) at discounted prices although it is now discounted on the Google Play store.
It’s not clear if the reduction in price in the US will trickle down to stores in the Philippines. Hopefully it does. If the reduction of the price becomes permanent, the Nexus 7 (2013) should prove to be more saleable than the iPad Mini 2, but that is just a hunch. Even I am planning on getting the iPad Mini 2.
The Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB WiFi-only model can now be purchased for $199 while the 32GB variant can be purchased for only $239.
