Google Nexus 7 eBay listings turn up, tablet not quite so affordable for everyone
Google’s first tablet ever was unveiled only yesterday during the company’s first Google I/O keynote, and one day later we have spotted several Google Nexus 7 eBay listings that will certainly be appreciated by those of you that can’t pre-order the device from Google Play at this time.
While most of these listings will let buyers pre-order the Google Nexus 7 for a marked up price, there are various offers that include one of the Google Nexus 7 tablets that were given for free to all Google I/O attendees. We’ll remind you that you can pre-order the device from Google Play for $199 and $249, for the 8GB and 16GB version, respectively.
But the bad news is that the device is only available for pre-order in the U.S., Canada and Australia, leaving many Android fans to look for a Nexus 7 tablet on other sites such as eBay, where the price can go as high as $500. One such auction lists a sealed white Google Nexus 7 given to one Google I/O attendant, and the current bid is at $275 with just over 16 hours left on the clock.
Will you buy this first Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet from Google Play or are you already hunting Google Nexus 7 deals? How much would you be willing to pay for the device on top of its list price?
