Nexus 7 32gb wifi + 3g £239 at Argos

Found 19th Jan 2013
Hi everyone!

I was browsing Argos today as I am looking for a tablet and noticed that they will be stocking the 3g version of the Nexus 7.

It is the same price as the Google Play store and is yet to go live but when it does you can at least save money on the shipping costs.

I just wish they would stock the Nexus 10!

Further down the Argos page is a link for a free simcard with the Nexus 7 3G.

Going to sell my N7 and get this. Its a nuisance having to carry my MiFi about.

Thanks for the heads up
Thank you darren! This is quite tempting and I may get it as soon as it's available.

Thanks to everyone for their feedback lol. I promise the next one will be good :-)
I gave you some heat even though its not much of a deal
Instock currently at google. Looking for nexus 10 for myself.

is it the cheapest available
hardly at deal it's RRP price
A great spot.

Remember you can use any saved nectar points! I was waiting for a good N7 deal, then remembered my nectar points.

Got my 32gb for £30.
No link and none in stock Cold
Dont waste your money, get yourself an iPad you wont regret it.
even though these dont have exfernal memory slot its still an excellent tablet.. personally i use ext mem a lot
can i use my phone's sim data in this or do carriers only allow tablet data plans?!

Have a similar feeling having used my Nexus 7 for a few months.
This is coming with someone who has a flashed hacked Symbian mobile (Nokia 700).

The Nexus 7 experience feels so jagged, uneven, unrefined. Jelly Bean is smooth as hell and it's no slouch, but it lacks the feeling of a finished product. In these respects the iPad Mini feels so much more appealing. Lower resolution screen makes web browsing and video viewing less attractive, but it's an all in one package which feels 'right' for a tablet.

To put it short, Android still feels very much like a mobile phone operating system...and feels jarred at best as a tablet OS.

£129 for the 16GB? Sure. £239 for 32GB and 3G? Hell no.

Thinking of getting the non 3g version myself or maybe taking the chance of getting a cheaper tablet
Free sim card with this deal and cheaper than the equivalent Apple device by £210!
Use my phone as a wireless hotspot for my nexus 7 - how is this any better or different ? I suppose you can put your sim into it can you?
Thanks. Been looking to upgrade to the 32GB and couldn't find one for love nor money! At £240 you can't complain.

Saves the extra drain of batteries on both devices, also tethering contracts are becoming rarer.
Hmm. I'm very tempted to upgrade... I love my 16GB Nexus 7, but the limited storage, and no 3g can be annoying at times.
is the sim card a pay as you go card or is it only valid for 30 days?

Couldn't disagree more. "Jagged, unrefined, uneven" are all just very subjective adjectives. In terms of real world use, it is amazing and don't have any issues with it. If you are only concerned about finish, I would agree Apple is indeed king by a long long way, but for usage, I think the Nexus edges it.

If you chose the Three SIM it only lasts 30 or so days from your first use.

I didn't realise you got it free, so do you think if I were to ask in store they through it in? I'll see what their catalogue says - the "deal" is valid till July 2013 so I think it must be a permanent offer. If not, £1 for 1GB of data isn't to be sniffed at!
I think there are a few Argos codes floating about
A very capable tablet and a lot of product for the money. Can't think of anything that comes close to this value for money wise. Very tempted. Heat added

It's not £1 for 1gb of data. It's £1 for the sim (though it's free with the tablet)
then you pay £7.50 for 30 days use. It's a rolling 30 day contract which means you can stop it any time you want, but its £7.50 for every 30 days you use!
Thank you to the member who included the working link. I have just reserved one at my locak store and seriously considering getting this instead of waiting for the Nexus 10. The 3g really pulls it for me and you can get 1 year t-mobile Internet sim for abouy £15. Someone help me decide. I need a tablet where I can comfortably read PDFs. Money is not an issue and while an iPad is nice I think android is better *for me :-)*
I was lucky to get one from the google store when they had em in stock 1st time round ,and it really is the biz (_;)
I really like my Nexus 7 16GB but I still prefer to use the Xoom 10.1" tablet which my wife uses when web browsing etc as I find that the larger screen is so much easier without having to pinch and zoom all the time. I also seem to "run out" of desktop space on the smaller tablet.
Free Wi-Fi spots are ok when I have used them but I might have preferred the 3G option for the small cost difference.
I like listening to audio books over BT with my Nexus and it is ok, in portrait mode, for reading epub books using the Moon+ reader.
I use a custom ROM and Kernel for the Nexus and the battery life is superb.
The Nexus 10 would be a good choice but goodness knows when that will ever be generally available in any retail shop.

Heat added for a great value tablet - wish they sold it at Currys as I have a voucher to spned there.
isn't it easier to just tether your WiFi to your phone?
Anyone with a Three contract on the one plan can tether their unlimited data plan at no extra cost to use with their wifi only tablet....negates the need for a mifi device or a 3G sim plan.

Has the slight extra advantage of the data being always on. Day-to-day, it's not a vast amount of difference, unless you value having your email there waiting rather than giving it a minute to sync.

However, if you use any security software with built in GPS tracking, you gain the ability to track your tablet as soon as it goes missing, rather than wait for the thief to get home, and hope he doesn't wipe it before connecting it to wifi. To me, this plus the added convenience makes it worthwhile, but others may not get the value from it.
Does CoPilot work with the Nexus 7 3G model? Very tempted to return my £179 CPW one I bought yesterday and get this one instead as the extra functionality would actually be really useful to me.

Really pleased with it as a unit but this would be the icing on the cake really. Anyone know how good the GPS is in it?
You could always use PPPWidget works really well, Meand you can plug a dongle in with a USBOTG cable.

FYI, the Queen of Britain uses an ANDROID TABLET
Hmm seems the WiFi version has full GPS. Guess I don't need the 3G after all.
I thought this looked great when announced, but put off by repirts of poor battery life (because of the 3g).

Got a galaxy s2 for £200 recently does the same job, and is a phone and camera.

How big is your S2? Because my one is a third of the size of my Nexus 7.
i have a feeling it''ll get cheaper soon but can't help it, can't resist now..
Both the Nexus 7 and iPad Mini are extremely good tablets and I'd be happy to own either of them.

Fortunately, I happen to have both of them!

The iPad Mini is beautiful hardware, and the App Store is full to the brim with apps.

However... I much prefer using the Nexus 7. I enjoy using it more than I enjoy using the iPad. Despite what Apple says, the Play Store is awash with apps that take full advantage of the tablet format. iOS is looking incredibly dated now when sat next to Android 4.2, and I am constantly offended by Apple's addiction to ugly skeumorphism...

Both fantastic tablets. But it really depends what you're familiar with as to which one you're likely the enjoy using the most.

Now, if someone could combine the iPad Mini hardware with the software of the Nexus 7, THAT would be the tablet for everyone to buy.
