Been holding off in purchasing the Google Nexus 7 (2013)?

It’s not the biggest drop in price, but the money is better off in your pocket than Google’s. Future Shop has put the new Android tablet on sale until September 15th for $219.99 – this is a savings of $30 when compared to their in-store price, but more importantly a savings of $10 when compared to grabbing one from Google Play.

The retailer is also limiting the number a customer can buy, stating that they have ‘Limited Quantity Available. Limit 1 per household.’

More info here at Future Shop. Check out our review of the Nexus 7 (2013) here.

    Lies. It said $9.99

  • Mohamed Abdourahman

    Sweet cant wait to get one

  • Threecube

    But does it come in gold?

  • atorontoguy

    My sons both love the previous version. In use constantly.

    • Mike simpson

      constantly plugged into the wall because of battery issues maybe.

  • Dalex

    Take it from someone who has had it since before it was even available for purchase in Canada (just had to ask the salesman at Staples nicely :P), this is the best purchase you can make. It’s lightweight and portable, has an incredible display, and is blazingly fast.

  • Tony Chau

    I have a 2012 version Nexus 7. Would like to get the 2013 Nexus 10 version whenever that comes out. Any day now?

  • darknite111

    Where is the LTE version for Canada? I want a nexus 7 so badly but Canada is getting screwed again by staggered release…

    • ns.dev

      I believe the US version is shipping with a T-mobile SIM. Maybe they’re looking for a good Canadian carrier to partner with.

    • The Werewolf

      If that’s what’s holding them up, knock $10 off the price and skip the SIM.. I have a SIM i’ll be using – I don’t need theirs.. I do want the tablet. :)

  • Victor_Creed

    I got one yesterday at future shop on a Best Buy price match for $229.99 time to get another $10 off. Sweet!

    • Mike simpson

      android “the value brand”

    • wes

      Name me a better speced 7-9 inch tablet? With full hd. Its not only about price, but you cant name a better speced tablet. Better than getting ripped off.

    • Mike Simpson

      its ok wes, “value” comes first, how do you like shopping at the dollar store? amazing value!

    • wes

      your ignorance is just plain sad

    • Anaron

      You’re right, nothing at all. I think Mike Simpson is implying that buying an Android device means you want to save money. Better yet, he’s implying that paying more means you’re getting a better product. In most cases that’s true; however, there’s a point where you start wasting money.

      PS: Are you nekkidtruth from Neowin? :)

    • Anaron

      A smart buyer would want to get the best bang for their buck. That doesn’t mean spending a lot of money. The current Nexus 7 is a great tablet for $229/$269 (16GB/32GB).

    • Mike Simpson

      your just cheap. sorry.

    • itard

      your just dumb. sorry.

    • Anaron

      No, I’m not. The truth is, you’re a fool if you think spending more is always the smarter thing to do.

    • The Werewolf

      Sooo.. you’re suggesting spending more to get less?
      That’s certainly clever. Corporate America definitely needs more people like you.

    • The Werewolf

      You realize you’re arguing and criticising without defining any terms. Value is in the eye of the beholder.
      People pay a fortune for coffee beans that a civet cat has run through its digestive tract and…mm… passed out the other end. Me – I find that disgusting and can live without that coffee – it has very little value. Some people love truffles (the fungus, not the chocolates) – me – they taste like burning plastic and make me throw up. Everyone has their preferences.
      Android devices span an amazing range of sizes, prices, build quality, features… The N7 happens to be a very solid device with a very good (if incomplete – no uSD slot) set of features at an exceptional price.
      So, yes – it is the ‘value brand’.. because you do get your money’s worth with it.
      Just because it’s not your thing doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be anyone’s thing and just because it’s not valuable to you doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be valuable to anyone.
      To each their own.

    jumped on it!

  • S2556

    I love mine! Use it every day

  • CrazyFish

    Great device, I have the 32GB version and would buy it again in a heartbeat.

  • BB BB

    I want one. It I’m still waiting for the cellular model

  • Bri

    Just bought one.. I might sell my iPad and keep this to save money..

  • Bri

    That’s what I did loll it’s pretty nice but I don’t like the screen ratio. I prefer iPad screen.

    • Thrasher

      I agree with you. I wish there was a 4:3 ratio 8 inch screen Android device with similar pixel density as the new Nexus 7. the wide-angle display on the Nexus 7 is not the best for reading magazines

  • Mike simpson

    why not just make it $0, so android fans can save money!

    • Bri

      What’s the matter lol you seem upset

  • 01011001001

    Yes great device, I wish the screen is a bit bigger at 7.7

  • Adam Watts

    Have they fixed the touchscreen and GPS issues yet? Can’t wait to pick one up, but want it working 100% first.

  • Anaron

    Ah, I thought I recognized your username.
