I just ordered the newer 2013 (2nd generation) a couple nights ago. Even if I compared today, I'd still go with the newer one. It's only around $100 more for the better resolution screen and other improved specs.

Why are these still in stock? Oh that's right. They suck.

Seriously, though, I had two of these die on me.

We might be here a while! This thing is moving super slow. How many of these things are there. Must not be a good price or they would be flying off the Woot shelves.

What do they mean by "mobile data" in the description?

The specs don't say anything about WWAN or cell carriers....

Yes. The Nexus 7 has a front-facing camera.

You bet. Check the Specs tab, broseph.
"Camera: Front-facing 1.2MP, 720p video recording @ 30 fps"

If you're referring to the touchpad, yes it has a front-facing too.

Thanks morriea & mustbechris. About an hour ago I was telling my friend that I have been waiting for a 2012 Nexus 7 to pop up on the woot off, and she tipped me off to the $120 deal y'all mentioned. I bought it about two hours ago, and then this popped up. I definitely would've bought it had I not known about the cheaper ebay deal, but if it were not a seller with a HUGE rating, I would've paid the extra $ for the woot.

And I love woot! I would've paid the $25 more to support them, but I didn't want to miss out on the ebay deal as it said "10 or more left in stock" and it was a GREAT deal!

This dude has a good question. I assume these are wifi-only and there was a copy/paste fail on the Features tab. Specs tab only shows wifi and bluetooth

The 32gb is as good as almost any deal on ebay. I would never get a 16gb because there is no SD card slot. I'd be worried about the not having enough storage.

The ones that were originally sold had a spot for a SIM card in them, which I think was the only difference between that and the wifi version. Hopefully someone from Woot will chime in and say which one this is.

They obviously have a ton of these. It's going down 1% at a time. Most Woot-off items go down by 5% or even more at a time.

At least they are starting to sell now. I was getting worried when it hung at 98% for a while.

I have one of these and have nothing but good things to say about it. I've had it since the launch (so a little over a year) and been very satisfied. I did have some issues with slowness when the free space was low, but a reset resolved that and I believe the newer Android firmware is supposed to help prevent that now. (I would still suggest going for the 32gb though, 16 was the largest available when I bought mine.)

That's great. Almost 7000 clicks. And y'all complain that it sells out so fast. No wonder, huh?

At least our servers aren't crashing. Bright side, you know.

But, can you answer the other's question [if I missed it, sorry] Is this the wifi only version or can you put a sim card in it?

It's still early. The sale would have said that it would ship in 3-5 business days. This is the 2nd business day. Hang tight.
