Amazon seems to have started with their Black Friday tablet deals pretty early this year, since they’ve just cut the price on one of their best selling tablets, the Asus/Google Nexus 7 FHD 2013.
The tablet deal which begins this Friday, sees the 16GB Nexus 7 FHD cut from $229 to $199, while the 32GB Nexus 7 is cut from $269 to $239. Profit margins on the Nexus 7 were already presumed to be pretty thin, so with this sale, it’s all in the buyers favor.
The Nexus 7 FHD 2013 was launched on July 24 this year, and immediately became the hottest 7-inch Android tablet because of its high specs and low price. Since then it has been dethroned as the most powerful 7-inch Android tablet, after Amazon launched its powerhouse Kindle Fire HDX 7 on September 25.
They both have the same 1920 x 1080 resolution with 323 ppi, but whereas the Nexus 7 FHD sports a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, Kindle Fire HDX 7 sports an even faster quad-core 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
But, Nexus 7 still have dual cameras, as opposed to just the one camera on the Kindle Fire HDX 7, and is now even cheaper than the $229 Kindle Fire HDX 7.
If you are looking for a Christmas gift for the boys and are unsure what to get, then the Nexus 7 FHD 2013 disappoints nobody that loves the Android OS.
