The Asus built Google Nexus 7″ has been a huge hit, with positive reviews from around the globe. Looking for a small tablet, then look no further.
Looks like the 8 version’s have been discontinued, if you visit http://www.google.com/nexus/7/ (the link goes via HideMyAss to allow SA users to see US pricing), in favour of the new 32GB version with 3G as an option. Pricing is now $199 for the 16GB version, $249 for the 32GB and $299 for the 32GB + 3G.
- 199 US dollars = 1847.48 South African rand – 14.05.2013
- 199 US dollars = 1829.20 South African rand – 17.03.2013
Pricing correct as of 14th May 2013 and all include VAT – I won’t be updating the 8GB version pricing as it has been discontinued & I don’t consider it the best option.
I have confirmed by calling Asus on 011-783 5450 and speaking to 2 different salespeople that First Technology Office are an Asus recommended retailer whereas some of the other suppliers here are supplying grey products. What does this mean? – you’re less likely to get support for your grey product.
|First Technology Office||–||–||*R2,895||*R3,695|
|Purple Fly Trading||–||R2,903||R2,977||R3,608|

*** remember when buying from Bidorbuy that you are dealing with private sellers very often and so some caution is necessary. Best if you can collect your goods.
The actual price from Expansys is R2899.99 and R3599.99 but as we all know that this is to try bullshit your brain into seeing “less than is there”, I upped them by 1c. Consider the price as stated with a 1c discount! I’ve done a similar thing for the R2999.00 pricing, except you get a R1.00 discount. Let’s cut the crap people!
