Farewell, Nexus 7

Google's Nexus 7 has long been a favorite Android tablet here at TR. Its combination of a high-PPI IPS screen and reasonably snappy internals made it a perennial feature in our mobile staff picks. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Google's product page for the Nexus 7 now says the pint-size slate is no longer available.

As with the demise of the Nexus 5, the Nexus 7's ride into the sunset means that it's now less affordable to get into the world of Nexus devices. The Nexus 9, the only Nexus tablet available at present, starts at $399 on the Google Store. By comparison, Newegg is selling its remaining stock of Nexus 7s at $180 for the 16GB version. We can only hope Google has an equally good—and affordable—successor waiting in the wings.
