Consumers eyeing Google's Nexus 7 tablet have until the end of the month to grab a special $25 credit good for anything in the Google Play store.
To lure in new Nexus 7 buyers, Google launched the offer at the same time the tablet debuted in June. But the company tweeted yesterday that the deal will end on September 30.
The announcement isn't a big surprise, as Google has long said the offer had a definitive sell-by date. It gave Nexus 7 owners $25 to spend on music, books, magazines, videos, and apps in the Google Play store. I bought a Nexus 7 tablet in June, and the credit certainly sweetened the deal, prompting me to pick up several books and a few apps to get started.
The 8GB Nexus 7 sells for $199, while the 16GB version sells for $249.
The Nexus 7 has garnered generally positive reviews, including a 4-star rating from CNET. But it's not the only player in the 7 inch tablet arena.
Amazon recently released an HD version of its Kindle Fire that has been picking up some positive buzz. And rumors say Apple will launch its next month, a device that would certainly give other 7 inch tablets some heated competition.
