You can no longer buy the Nexus 7 from Google

Nexus 7 Announcement
It had a good run, but the end is nigh: Google has pulled the 2013 edition Asus Nexus 7 from its online store, marking the end of the road for the small, inexpensive tablet. Whether or not a new Nexus 7 is on the cards for 2015 remains to be seen.

The Nexus 7 first appeared in 2012, just ahead of the iPad mini, in an attempt to get a foothold for Android tablets in an Apple-dominated market. It’s largely succeeded in its mission, with a wealth of both high-end and budget Android slabs now available for consumers — there are far more choice for Android tablet buyers now than there were in 2012.

The second edition Nexus 7 showed up in summer 2013, earning high praise in the Digital Trends review: “The Nexus 7 is, again, the king of all Android tablets,” we wrote back then. “At $230, it’s still affordable, and with a Full HD screen, it’s never looked better.”

Nothing lasts forever though, and after two years of duty it was inevitable that the Nexus 7 would get pulled sooner or later. With Google now up to 6 in its Nexus numbering system for smartphones, it’s going to be interesting to see what the tech firm does with the Nexus 7 name next — an all-new tablet? Or a large-screen smartphone?

We don’t have any official word from Google at this point but you can see for yourself that the Nexus 7 has disappeared from the lineup in the Nexus store. With the Nexus 6 having suffered supply problems and the larger Nexus 9 yet to make a significant dent in the market, Google will be hoping that the next device in the range proves to be a hit.

Meanwhile, if you’re desperate to add the Nexus 7 2013 edition to your gadget museum collection, we’d suggest heading to eBay as quickly as possible.
