Google's new Nexus 7 Android tablet will be priced from £199 in the UK for the cheapest 16GB model, demonstrating a mark-up from the US $229 RRP.
Asus, the company that builds the new Nexus 7, confirmed the 16GB and 32GB Nexus 7s will be available in Amazon, Argos, Asda, Currys, Carphone Warehouse, Ebuyer, John Lewis, PCWorld, Shop Direct, Sainsbury's and Tesco for £199 and £239 respectively. The figures represent a marked increase on the Nexus 7's US retail price, where the 16GB will cost $229 (around £160 with tax) and the 32GB $269 (£190).
The Taiwanese firm also confirmed the 4G LTE version of the Nexus 7 will launch alongside the WiFi only versions costing a more hefty £299. Google and Asus are yet to reveal the new Nexus 7's release date, with both firms listing it as arriving in the UK "in the coming weeks".
The new Nexus is the second 7in tablet made boasting Google's premier branding. The original Nexus 7 launched in July last year and was designed to target the same affordable space in the market. The new Nexus features several technical and software improvements. Key changes include the addition of a 5MP rear camera, Google's latest Android 4.3 operating system and a 7in 1920x1200 Full HD 323ppi multi-touch display, which Google claims is the best ever seen on a tablet.
