Google’s new 7 inch tablet is now available for purchased at a number of retailers. The new Nexus 7 was originally scheduled to hit stores July 30th, but it looks like folks just couldn’t wait, and now the tablet is available for purchase in the US for $229 and up.

Actually, make that $199 and up. Staples is running a tablet sale that lets you knock $30 off the price of any tablet with the coupon code 41178. You can use it to pick up a Kindle Fire HD 7 for as little as $129. Or you can buy a new Nexus 7 for the same price as last year’s model.

New Nexus 7

The second-generation Nexus 7 features a 7 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB to 32GB of storage.

Not only does it have a faster CPU and higher resolution display than its predecessor, but it also has a brighter screen with better color reproduction, an extra hour of battery life, and a rear camera (as well as a front-facing camera). Google even threw in an LED notification light this time around.

Surprisingly, it also comes in a slightly thinner case.

While Staples is offering the best price (until the coupon expires on July 28th), here are some other places you can buy a new Nexus 7 tablet:

We’ll have a full review of the new Nexus 7 soon.

    1. Unfortunately, no… New models are $30 higher priced than the old models, and 16GB is still the base capacity offered, but the other specs are improved and the device is roughly just over twice as powerful as the original model…

      There are indications the eMMC drive is faster than the original though, so while you may not get more capacity it should be much more responsive…
