Google discontinues their 2013 model of the Nexus 7 tablet Google has confirmed this weekend that the 2013 model of the Nexus 7 has now been discontinued, fully replaced by the newer and more powerful Nexus 9.
The original N7 was a great 7-inch tablet that was ultimately much more affordable than the iPad and was therefore popular among consumers.

While the Nexus 7 cost just $199, Google has moved to a more premium product, at $399 for its Nexus 9. The Nexus 9 packs an 8.9 inch 1536 x 2048 pixels display, a Nvidia Tegra K1 processor and upgraded cameras as well as a sleeker smaller bezel design.

If you are still in the market for a 7-inch tablet, Samsung has too many to count.

Such a shame a great tablet for the price no other competitor could match. Although I paid 269 for the 32gb 4G LTE version. Hopefully they will have another 7 inch successor closer to the original price with all the bells and whistles, because the nexus 9 and nexus 6 phone is a huge jump in prices.

Tablets are a waste. Dime a dozen. Seems to me that 1 is all a household (not a person) needs. They get back-burnered to a laptop every time.

I use both about even. In fact I use my phone more then both combined. I use my laptop strictly for school work and my tablet for fun. Although my laptop is 11 inches it still can't beat the portability of my tablet and lte connectivity.Love the miracast option over the terrible smart features lg put in their TV's.
