Rock journalism is people who can't write interviewing people who can't talk for people who can't read - Frank Zappa
NUMERICAL MOBILE OPERATOR Three has started selling the Google Nexus 7 3G, just days after the tablet arrived back in the UK.
The mobile network tells us that the Asus made tablet is now available both in its stores and online, although it's not yet showing on the Three website.
Three has priced it at £49.99 on a 24 month £19.99 contract, which comes complete with a 5GB data allowance. This works out to a cost of £530 over two years, whereas it costs just £239 SIM-free at the Google Play store.
The WiFi-only versions are even cheaper, costing £159 and £199 for the 16GB and 32GB models, respectively.
Sylvia Chind, head of Devices at Three, sounds pretty pleased, saying, "It's clear that the 3G enabled Nexus 7 has been designed to really go the distance, with both powerful specs and a powerful battery life.
"Alongside a super-fast processor and the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software, we're confident this tablet will deliver the ultimate Google experience." µ
