Staples has had some good discounts on the 2013 Nexus 7 this holiday season. The problem is they seem to run out of stock fairly quickly. Yesterday we posted about the 16GB Nexus 7 being back in stock on the Staples website but the 32GB was still sold out. Well we're happy to see that the 32GB is back in stock for $239, which is $30 off the Google Play Store price of $269 and if you're a Staples Rewards member you can get an additional 5% off bringing the price down to $227.05...over $40 off list plus Free Shipping. Staples tends to run out of stock fairly quick so if you're looking to get this before the holiday this might be the time to get one at a decent discount.

Any word on what it does? Probably just a few bug fixes I would think that they discovered over the past few days since 4.4.1 went out.

Great deal on a portable battery powered disc speaker with up to 5 hours of continuous play and 8 hours of standby time that connects to your device via bluetooth. Great travel companion and just $22.99 with free shipping. Can also be used for hands free phone calls with the built-in mic. Available in any of 7 different colors as well. Makes a great gift just about anyone with a Nexus 7 or any other bluetooth equipped mobile device (phone or tablet) can use.

If you've thought of picking up the Poetic Slimline Case for your 2013 Nexus 7 this might be your chance to do it on the cheap. Ebay has the brand new black model on sale right now for just $10.95 plus $3.99 shipping which brings the grand total to $14.94. This compares to $12.95 + $8 shipping or $20.95 total on Amazon unless you get over that $35 minimum order hurdle where they'll ship for free. That's a $6 difference. The Poetic Slimline Case for the Nexus 7 2013 is very highly regarded and well-reviewed and probably is the most popular case sold for the Nexus 7. It has great build quality, sleep/wake function and the cover secures easily and firmly with multiple magnet touch points to prevent it from swinging open. All cutouts including the camera and ports are precisely aligned and cut. It's also remarkably thin and light, keeping your Nexus 7 ultra portable. Looks great too. We can't say enough about how great this case is, it's simply awesome and the one I use on my own Nexus 7. For more info or to grab one, the page is at the link below.

It's been a few weeks since I've done a game spotlight for Nexus7Forum.com since I've been so busy with the holidays and all. But I just got introduced to this really cool and atmospheric indy titled called 'BADLAND' that I thought deserved it's own spotlight so here we go.
'BADLAND' is one of those cool, eery hard to describe titles that while definitely is in the side scrolling platform genre has a personality and originality uniquely it's own. There's a bit of Tim Burtonesque creepiness to the visuals, which mostly consist of this exotic alien forest inhabited by all kinds of far out and brilliantly conceived creatures, flowers and trees as well as traps, puzzles and obstacles. The gameplay is heavily physics based but is easy to learn and the whole game is filled with gorgeous atmospheric audio to accompany the cool visuals.
'BADLAND' has won all sorts of independent gaming awards from the PAX Indy Game Award 2013 to the Nordic Indie Game Sensation Award to European Game Connection Awards. It has a multiplayer mode as well for up to 4 players to compete in the games 21 different levels. There's also more levels that are scheduled to be introduced soon that will expand the game even further. Overall, if you're a fan of original and independent game titles you should download 'BADLAND' and give it a try. If you're running Android 4.4 it even takes advantage of the new 'immerssive mode' capability to take advantage of the entire screen. 'BADLAND' is free to play but there are ads and optional in-app purchases in the game. It looks absolutely stunning on the Nexus 7's display and it's a lot of fun so definitely check it out this weekend when you have time. Have a great weekend everyone!

With the holiday season upon us we know tablets are one of the most popular gifts. With so many brands, form factors and prices in the Android world we thought we'd spotlight a review that really nails why the Nexus 7 is the best tablet out there at the moment. Marques Brownlee has become somewhat of an internet sensation in the tech world over the last year. His reviews are honest, he's articulate and smart and he knows his tech devices like nobody's business. He's also a college student who is in tune with everything the younger generation values in their tech devices.
Marques calls the Nexus 7 'the best android tablet you can buy' right now and he gives three main reasons for this. First, he loves the form factor which is even lighter and thinner than last year's already lightweight design. Second he's absolutely overwhelmed by the incredible screen on the new Nexus 7 which he calls the brightest, highest resolution and just all around most awesome he's used to date. In fact just firing up an app on the screen makes him smile it's so good. Finally he loves the performance of the 2013 Nexus 7, especially the stock Android experience you get. He goes as far as to say that while some phone manufacturers have done a decent job of creating skins that are enjoyable to use on the phone form factor, nobody comes close to matching the tablet experience of pure Android and thus only the Nexus 7 and its big brother Nexus 10 should even be considered.
Now of course he has some quibbles too. The speakers are only of mediocre quality and the battery life, while good, can't be considered 'great'. Still...the bottom line is clear...if you're looking for an Android tablet this holiday season, you can't go wrong with the Nexus 7 2013 edition. It'll bring a smile to your face. It's just that good. Of course you can pick up the Nexus 7 at Google's own Play Store and we'll continue to highlight sale prices as we find them across the web right through the holidays to save you a few bucks where we can.

Android 4.4.1 OTA for the 2013 Nexus 7 LTE is starting to roll out to devices starting today. This is only for LTE 2013 Nexus 7s. Wi-Fi models to follow soon. Still waiting for the changelog to see what it brings to the Nexus 7.

So the one thing we all have in common at Nexus7Forum.com is we either own or are fans of the Asus Nexus 7 tablet. But which phone do you all prefer? We're assuming the vast majority of Nexus 7 owners are Android phone users, although we know a few are partial to the iPhone or Windows or even Blackberry. Let us know which phone you current use and perhaps a bit about which phones you've used in the past and what you liked about them. This should be a really interesting thread. So let's hear your phone histories!

Who's using the official Nexus wireless charger sold in the Play Store with their 2013 Nexus 7 and how's it working for you? Do you recommend it? Let's hear your thoughts...

It's Cyber Monday and as expected there's some great deals on the Nexus 7 on the net. The best we've found are on Ebay's Daily Deals Cyber Monday Page so here's the scoop. You can get a Brand New 2013 Nexus 7 in either 16GB or 32GB versions for $40 off list, $189 or $229 respectively, or you can also opt for a 16GB manufacturer recertified unit for $60 off at only $169. The refurbished units explicitly state “Asus Recertified and comes with a Asus Warranty.” so you'll probably not even be able to tell they're not brand new. All of these deals include free shipping. The deals are now live and of course as with any Ebay Daily Deal they could run out of supply at any time without warning. Our pick would probably be the New 32GB version since it's nice to have the extra storage space and at $229 (normally $269) it's selling at the 16GB price you'd pay at the Google Play Store. Regardless of which you choose, you're still getting a deal so hit the links below and grab one while they got em and put a check box next to that 'Nexus 7' on your shopping list!
