With the recent announcements made by Google, including the launch of the new Nexus devices and the new version of the OS, the Nexus 7 also benefited from a revamp and new prices. The 16 GB WiFi only variant is now as cheap as $199 on the Play Store and there are also 3G variants available. Given what it offers for such a good price, it’s no wonder the tablet is on everybody’s wishlist for this year’s Holiday season.
