Google Nexus 7 pricing in SA

Google launched its 7” Nexus 7 Android tablet PC in July, with prices starting at $200 for the entry-level 8GB version.

The Asus-manufactured Google Nexus 7 is the first tablet PC to be launched with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system; and at $200 for the 8GB version, and $250 for the 16GB version, it is aggressively-priced.

The Nexus 7 has received many positive reviews, and the low price-point makes it well-positioned to take on other popular tablet PCs like the Apple iPad and the Kindle Fire.

Unconfirmed reports (from Forbes) even suggest that the demand for Google’s Nexus 7 tablets was so high that the 16GB version sold out, forcing the company the halt orders until the product was in stock again.

The Google Nexus 7 has not officially been launched in South Africa, yet.

Google said that it would love to bring the Nexus 7 to South Africa as soon as possible, but the company could not confirm any dates.

However, many online retailers are already selling the Nexus 7 as a direct-import service. As can be expected with direct imports, pricing for these devices are at a premium.

The following table provides an overview of pricing for the Google Nexus 7 from South African online stores.
