Hi. You can buy the nexus directly from Google on the play store (play.google.com) but that price sounds about right.
There will probably be a new device announced in time for Christmas but the current 7 is fine, and being a nexus it will get any new software updates straight away, probably for the next couple of years so you should be okay with it.
DH would like a nexus 7 and I've said no since Xmas, so thought itd be a nice surprise for his birthday ;)
I've been waiting for google to announce their new stuff and think it was this week, is that right? If so it seems there's no new nexus 7 imminent, so no point waiting another couple of weeks to buy, do you think? (I'm assuming new version = price drop on old one...)
And the best price I can find is £189 from pcworld, anyone know anywhere better?
