Google Offers Discounts on Nexus Protection
Those looking to accessorize or add a case for protection for their Nexus 5 smartphone or the new Nexus 7 for 2013 can now do so with a 25 percent discount on select cases on the Google Play Store. The limited time promotion is hosted by Google and is available for a number of cases, covers, and sleeves covering the newest flagship Nexus smartphones or tablets from the Internet search giant. Given that Google’s smartphones and tablets are priced incredibly competitively, the deals on accessories only make sense to make the total cost of ownership more affordable to Nexus owners.
The discount applies to the Nexus 7 Sleeve, the Nexus 7 Folio, the Nexus 7 Case, the Nexus 5 Bumper Case, and the LG QuickCover for the Nexus 5.
Google’s official first-party accessories are already priced sort of high, so the discounts make the cases more affordable. For example, the popular Nexus 5 Bumper Case now costs $26.24 after the discount is applied and the Nexus 7 Folio Cover costs just $37.49 after discount.
Given the promotion, a few items may be out of stock if there’s high demand.
In addition to these official cases and accessories, users who may still balk at the discounted prices could turn to third-party solutions that are offered from a variety of manufacturers and vendors. Some of these options are available on sites such as eBay and Amazon.
The discounted case promotion comes as we’re hearing more speculations of Google’s rumored product plans for 2014, including a new 8-inch Nexus 8 tablet to compete against Samsung’s Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note series with the same 8-inch form factor as well as Apple’s iPad mini tablets.
