Just ordered a 16GB Nexus 7 with a very nice Devicewear case/stand for $276NZ all up inc delivery.  Best NZ price for the 16GB Nexus is $359.

 

A shame that the Amazon price jumps from US$175 for 16GB to $US239 for 32GB, but for a cheap tablet for my youngest the 16GB will do

Ugh and the Nexus 6 hasn't even been released yet. How'd you get your hands on one of these?

The top right of every page has a link to Amazon Kindle - click on that and anything you buy on Amazon (not only Kindle, but ANYTHING) gives us a commission. Failing that, there's a link "Amazon Orders" on the footer of every page as well.

Or just go here: www.amazon.com/?tag=geekzone-20.

agggh that sounds brilliant. i cant read ebooks on my phone, my eyes strain and get intense headaches, so it corrects the light etc?

also possible to get a small external keyboard or is that better suited to the next model up?
