are argos selling the 2012 model of the nexus 7 seeing as it's much cheaper than buying from google?

is there a way to tell if it's the 2012 or 2013 model ?

It's the 2012 model - read the specification.

Just check the resolution. 2012 model has 1280 x 800 pixels. The 2013 is 1920 x1200 pixels.

but sneaky of argos really.
they should really be making sure people know this is the older version.

only reason i noticed it as it's advertised on TV as just the "nexus 7".

It's only 30 dearer than their own not very well received tablet. Worth paying that extra 30.

Numbers comparison here.....

I was looking at this earlier today, had to check to make sure which model it was.

Would prefer the 2gen model for it's HDMI, 2Gb RAM is also a bonus, just weighing if the extra 45 is worth it - best price I've seen is 175.

2013 model does not have HDMI, except via a Slimport cable - about 20 extra.

the point i'm making is that argos are not specifically stating that this is NOT the current model - they are simply saying Nexus 7.

anyone not 1005 up to date on current specs would assume they are buying the current model, and not an old discontinued model.
