Where to Buy a Nexus 7

If you are wondering where you can buy a Nexus 7, look no further. This guide will not only direct you to all the different retailers and online stores that are selling the popular tablet, but we’ll even give you some secret tips into the powerful Google-powered device. If you are not familiar with what a Nexus 7 is, the device is a very popular tablet powered by Android, which is the operating system created by Google. The tablet has been on the market for some time now, but with the holiday shopping season now upon us, chances are you’ve figured it’s a heck of a lot smarter to buy two amazing Nexus 7 tablets than just one made by Apple for what would amount to be the same price. Let’s dive into some of the information we have handy so you can know where to buy a Google Nexus 7.

Online Retailers – Where to Buy a Nexus 7

Amazon.com

If the question is, where do I buy a Nexus 7, then the first answer from any tech friend of yours is sure to be Amazon. If you happen to be the last person on Earth that hasn’t ordered from Amazon, rest assured they’re not going anywhere and are quite reputable. The tablet can be found there and runs under $300 for the 16GB edition. The 7″ display runs at 1280×800 as an HD display at 216ppi for a retina-like display experience. It runs Google Android version 4.1, also known as Jelly Bean, for the operating system. There are hundreds of customer reviews and the tablet ranks as one of the highest rated tablets in Amazon’s store.

NewEgg

If you haven’t heard of Newegg.com it’s been around for a very long time and also carries the tablet. They are a very reputable online store that specializes in computer parts at a great price. We’ve used them to order parts in the past and have found their turnaround time to be very impressive, along with their customer service. A quick search of the Nexus 7 will first reveal some accessories, but scrolling down further will reveal the ASUS made Nexus 7, armed with NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 GPU processor. This is a very viable and trustworthy place where you can buy a Nexus 7.

Google

That’s right, one place where you can buy a Nexus 7 includes the folks behind the device, Google. If you go to the “Google Play” store (https://play.google.com/store) you will be able to buy the tablet either in the 8GB or 16GB editions. The Nexus 7 is prominently displayed in their store as their flagship tablet device of choice and if you don’t necessarily feel like ordering it from one of the other guys, then you can trust Google to purchase the tablet through. Remember that Google was the one that developed the operating system software, Android, that powers this device.

Traditional Retailers

Frys Electronics

Frys, for those of you that have them near you, has to rank right up there in the category of Best Store Ever. Fortunately, unlike Best Buy, Frys Electronics does carry the Nexus 7 so you can buy that tablet of choice at this retailer. Regretfully, Frys is not in all 50 states so you might have to rely on their online shop if you don’t care for the three outlined above. Regardless, Google has their flagship tablet device in this mega-retail chain so for folks in California, Texas and other states with these stores in them they are in luck. If you are looking for top flight Google Android powered tablets, you are going to want to make Frys a stop when you start to shop.

Staples

This one might be a little surprising, but yes, Staples carries the Nexus 7! While one might not think to answer the question of where to buy a Nexus 7 with Staples, the truth is this mega retail chain does in fact carry the tablet. If you search Staples’ website, you’ll find that you can order the Android powered tablet online to ship to your local store or search nearby stores to see if they already carry it in stock. Once again, there are a significant number of customer reviews and an overwhelming majority are positive for the Google tablet.

    A Better question might be who has them in stock. Right now it seems only Google has them available for shipment. Other vendors are currently OOS.
    Now if you want to buy one at a $40-50 markup those are around.

    If you need it now google. If you can wait until the hype has passed (or even better yet until after the christmas season) then price and availability should improve.
