Available in a limited period offer until July 13th, Staples has displayed the 16GB and 32GB variants of the Nexus 7 at a discounted rate of $179 and $199.

Sporting a 7-inch screen, the Nexus 7 holds 1280 x 800 pixel resolution with 216 pixels per inch (ppi). Holding 1GB of RAM, the device packs a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. With Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, the tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

The discounts seem to be an attempt to make way for the arrival of the second-generation Google Nexus 7 tablet.

The current Nexus 7 was announced in June 2012 and released in July. A year later, Staples is hoping to clear out the stock in anticipation of the next version.

However, the move might be an attempt by Staples to attract more customers. Nevertheless, the discounts are attractive, considering the cost of devices at Google Play Store that’s $199.99 for 16GB and $249.99 for 32GB.

The deal is also open at Staples online store. Interestingly for those who got a Discover card, Staples is offering further 5 percent off at the devices due to its ShopDiscover service.
