The AT&T HSPA+ version of the Nexus 7 is available on the Google Play store with a $100 bill credit. This will only apply to those who are willing to commit to a 2-year service agreement with the carrier on qualified postpaid standalone or Mobile Share plans.
This Nexus 7 offer by AT&T amounting to $100 credit is by no means the most outrageous deal we’ve seen. We recall the iPhone sale in Walmart stores which tagged the device at just $127. Then there was the Australian retailer Kogan, which jumped into the mobile space recently with the Agora. The company circumvents wholesalers and distributors to bring consumer electronics to potential users on the cheap.
The device in question comes with Android Jelly Bean (version 4.2) and sports a 7-inch back-lit IPS display with a pixel density of 216ppi and a 1280 x 800p resolution. It should also be noted that scratch-resistant Corning glass protects the screen from the everyday bump and grind.
In addition, there is a 1.2MP front-facing camera which can be used for video conferencing purposes, thanks to its 3G (HSPA+) connectivity. There’s also Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS as well as NFC capability with Android Beam, while other features include an accelerometer and a gyroscope.
32GB of internal memory storage should come to the aid of users, with 1GB of RAM backing up the quad core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. The device measures 198.5mm x 120mm x 10.45mm in dimensions and since we’re talking about the mobile data variant, it weighs 347 grams. Rounding up the specs, a 4325mAh battery keeps the slab juiced up.
The Nexus 7 is available for $299 on the Google Play store and this $100 AT&T bill credit offer runs up until February 14, 2013. As Android Police points out, buyers must sign a 2-year contract and visit a carrier-owned store or call on the listed 1800 number to have the promotion activated.
