Australian deal-a-day site Catch Of The Day has scooped most Australian stores today, offering the 32 GB Wifi Nexus 7 for $298 + $7.95 delivery. The deal looks set to expire at 10am Tuesday, Sydney time.
We’re still waiting for retailers both online and offline to update us on their plans to carry the device (along with its new 3G sibling), but this price is cheaper than the rumoured Dick Smith Electronics price of $319.
Google’s Play Store lists the device as “In Stock” for $299, though their delivery charge is $19.99. Catch Of The Day might take a little longer to ship but you’ll save some money.
Notably, these units don’t come with an AC power adapter. The 8 GB and 16 GB models sold in Australia thus far have space for this adapter in the box, and the Google Play listing for the device says the box includes a “Dual-voltage USB wall charger”. These units may have been imported and opened to remove foreign power adapters, and then sold “as-is” without the adapter. But a 32 GB Nexus 7 is still a 32 GB Nexus 7.
