Google Discontinues Its Nexus 7 Tablet

People just want large tablets or very big smart phones, not a small tablet.

It’s time to say goodbye to Google’s Nexus 7 tablet. The company has decided to discontinue the device.

If you paid a visit over the weekend to the Google Store in hopes of finding one then you were sure to have been disappointed. It’s been taken off the site, but can still be acquired via Amazon.com, at least for now.

The 7 inch tablet has been supplanted by the newer models, Nexus 9 and 10. Also, people do not seem to be interested in a seven inch tablet. They would prefer either a larger one or just a very large cell phone like the Samsun Galaxy.

The competition in the mobile device market today is cutthroat to say the least. Apple introduced its iPad mini and a variety of companies are offering smaller tablets. Amazon is said to be regretting its venture into the market with its Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble’s e reader the Nook was a failure.

HP’s venture into the tablet market a few years ago was also a failure, but this did not stop Microsoft from introducing its new Windows enabled tablet like notebook computer the Surface Pro.

Asus and Acer are also going strong with their tablet/notebooks and it would appear that the whole notebook computer market is turning into nothing more than windows enabled tablets with keyboards.

Surprisingly, the Nexus 7 was first introduced back in 2012. 3 years is a long time for a computer device to last these days. What 3 year old model iPhones or Samsungs are still available for sale new?
