Google is now selling its Nexus 7 with option to buy combo with a Chromecast dongle, which will earn you a $35 Google Play credit as well as free shipping in the gift box.
If you want to buy the Chromecast along with the available Nexus 7 tablets, then you will get back the payment of the dongle as the Google Play credit. But, this offer is not applicable for Nexus 4 or Nexus 5 smartphones (as of now) and those other Google Play edition phones such as HTC One ($599), Sony Z Ultra ($649) and Samsung Galaxy S4 ($649). Cheapest Google Play edition device, LG’s G Pad 8.3 tablet also sells at Google Play store for $349, is excluded from the offer.
Few days ago(call it hours ago), Google has quietly launched the white Nexus 7 tablets in U.S., U.K. and Japan, but currently the 16GB White Nexus 7 priced at $229 is not available and only 32GB White Nexus 7 WiFi version available in U.S. Play store for $269. If you want a cheapest tablet, then you could go for the 16GB Black Nexus 7 for $229 with Chromecast additionally at “0” cost, indirectly!
However, the 32GB Nexus 7 cellular (4G LTE) version of AT&T and T-Mobile models are available for $349 and it won’t come with white edition. Although the Google’s Nexus 7 webpage says that the tablets comes with Android 4.3, when you get it, tablets will upgrades to the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat. We say, keep your eyes on the Google Play store (link for U.S. readers).
