Google’s Nexus 7 Discontinued

If you’re in the market for a 7″ Android tablet which spontaneously powers down – I’ve got bad news. Google’s Nexus 7 Android tablet is now listed as ‘not available’ on their store. The Nexus 7 was first released July 2012 and subsequently updated July 2013 to a 2013 model.  The device’s primary feature was the pure Android underpinnings. The Nexus 9 is the last Google Nexus pure Android tablet offering .

  1. Randomly powers down? Maybe the 2012 edition but mine’s been rock solid.

    This is a sad day. Nexus is supposedly not doing well…but I think it is mostly because the Nexus 9 has issues. HTC’s version just isn’t anywhere CLOSE to the level it’s supposed to be! If I am paying 400 dollars for a tablet than the back shouldn’t flex in ! That’s a big reason I didn’t buy one. That and since I have a Nexus 6 I don’t really need it.

  2. My experience with Nexus 7 — sporadically shuts itself down. Nexus 9 – great if you’re looking to lift weights. Nexus 6 – love the big screen size – would be greater if it also didn’t either sporadically reboot or power completely off (as my first Nexus 6 did).

    The long and short of this is that the Nexus line was built on low cost affordable quality devices. Which with the most recent line Google has failed to deliver on both fronts.
