Google’s Nexus 7 is one of the best Android tablets available in the market today, and with a revised 2013 launched recently, it is stirring up quite a buzz in the tech world. The Nexus 7 2013 is a huge improvement over its previous model, and with the consumers eagerly waiting for the holiday season, it is tipped to be one of the hottest selling tablets. Google Nexus 7 Black Friday deals and rumours are already appearing on the internet, with many speculating that the low-priced tablet would be even more affordable during the busy shopping season.
As far as demand for the Nexus 7 is concerned, it has hit through the roof and charted new territories. Google planned to sell around 3 million tablets this year initially, but with the demand being higher than expected, Google might ramp up the production of the tablet to address growing demand. With Asus backing Google as their original equipment manufacturing (OEM) partner, the quality of the product is on par with the next best tablet on the market – Apple iPad. To kick off the massive Nexus 7 sales frenzy, Black Friday would be an ideal start.
Nexus 7 Black Friday Price and Sales Expectations
It’s very hard to judge what the price of the tablet will be during Black Friday sales, but we can make an educated guess depending on its current price and the usual discounts offered during Black Friday. Currently, the 16GB Nexus 7 2013 retails for $229 and the 32GB Nexus 7 2013 retails for $269. While some retailers prefer to offer direct price discounts, some like to make bundled offers by selling the tablet along with its accessories for a reduced price. In both the cases, the customers are able to make huge savings on their purchases.
If you plan to purchase multiple accessories individually, then the total purchase cost can ramp up pretty steep. While individual accessories aren’t prohibitively expensive on their own, theirs costs do add up when a number of accessories are purchased. As an example, Google offers the basic Nexus 7 cover for $20 on its Play store, and the additional charger is sold for around $25. Other accessories include screen protectors, external keyboards, styluses, car chargers and adapters. If you include all those accessories along with your purchase, then the cost of the Nexus 7 tablet can surely double.
As a result, consumers are eagerly waiting to make their purchases during the Black Friday to save on costs. Hopefully, many retailers would offer great bundled discount packages to make the deal even sweeter. Moreover, Google is still selling the previous year’s Nexus 7 at a reduced price currently. During the Black Friday, its final price is expected to drop even steeper – perhaps it would retail for around $100, or even lesser.
The main reason why the tablet market is rife with low-priced tablets is not necessarily due to lack in quality, but due to the fierce competition present in the market. Apple is dominating the tablet landscape with their iPad, and with Amazon offering their Kindle Fire HD tablets at very low prices, Google needs to price the Nexus 7 accordingly. However, by building a powerful tablet with a great screen in a small form factor, Google has exceeded everyone’s expectations this time around with the new Nexus 7.
Those who miss out on the Nexus 7 Black Friday holiday rush can catch up with their purchasing spree during Cyber Monday, which follows Black Friday soon after. The Nexus 7 Cyber Monday deals are expected to offer the same discounts and special packages as that offered during the Black Friday. Though Black Friday is around two months from today, if you are planning to pick up the Nexus 7 tablet, then it is definitely worth the wait.
