Carphone Warehouse to stock the Nexus 7

Carphone Warehouse have today confirmed they will indeed be selling the Nexus 7 tablet from Google next month. They have said the Nexus 7 will be priced at £199.99 standalone or for free on a tethered contact. I presume this means they will only sell the 16GB version.

Commenting on the launch, Graham Stapleton, Chief Commercial Officer at Carphone Warehouse, says, “Consumer demand for tablets has exploded in just over two years since the launch of the first generation iPad. The wide range of devices now available means that consumer choice and buying power is stronger than ever. Google clearly believes that there is further scope to grow the market and the competitively priced Google Nexus will serve to make tablet devices more accessible to customers. 

“The meteoric rise in the popularity of tablets can be attributed to changes in the way we are using the internet, managing relationships and consuming media. Our lives are more connected and ‘always on’ than ever before. It’s all about convenience; people don’t want to have to go to a desk and sit at a computer to surf the internet, do some online shopping, chat with friends or update a Facebook status – tablet devices lend themselves perfectly to all these activities, all from the comfort of the sofa. Whilst laptops have catered to this need in the past they are slightly cumbersome and awkward; tablets offer the ideal solution and represent the direction home computing is likely to take in the future as demand for clunky home desktop PCs decreases.”

Google Nexus features a 7 inch screen, quadcore processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB memory. It will be the first (and only for the next four months) tablet to run the new Jelly Bean operating system.
