In an interesting offer, Staples has put the Google Nexus 7 up for sale at a whooping price of $149 for the 16GB version and $169 for the 32GB variant. Users can avail this offer using the coupon code 20098 at the time of checkout. However, the offer excludes the sales tax.

Lowest prices to hit a Nexus device, the offer surely make the tablet a good buy.

The bid seems to be a move by the sellers to clear the stock before the forthcoming Nexus hits the market.

Running a 1.2GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the Nexus 7 houses 1GB of RAM and hold Android 4.2.2. With a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution screen, the device comes with a front camera and connectivity choices such as Bluetooth. However, the tablet lacks in certain features that its rivals offer including an expansion slot, camera at rear and GPS.

Considering its competitors, Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD is also up for sale; costing $169 for 16GB version and Barnes & Noble Nook HD 8GB costs $129 with 16GB costing $149.

This offer however, does make the Nexus 7 an attractive device to grab.
