If you'd had your eye on a new Nexus device but missed out on the recent round of smartphone sales, today's new Google tablet deal might be of interest. Just days after the Nexus 6 price was slashed to £304 (normally £479), the WiFi Nexus 9 is enjoying similar treatment, with the 16GB model now setting you back £200 instead of the usual £319. Amazon and Argos are both hosting the deal, which also includes a £100 discount on the 32GB model, but Google has not reflected the price change on its own store.

Motorola and Google have teased sales in recent months, suggesting that both companies are managing stock levels ahead of a likely Nexus hardware refresh in the coming months. Google bucked from tradition with the launch of the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 by removing the huge subsidies that earlier flagship devices had enjoyed, which is probably why we're seeing bigger discounts now we're enjoying summer. Given that Google has not mirrored the price change, we can only presume that today's deals are time-limited or are in place until the allotted stock runs out. That means you'll likely have to move quickly if you're wanting to grab HTC's first Nexus tablet while it's affordable.

Update (July 10th): And there you go, both Amazon and Argos have set pricing back to normal. Did you take the plunge during the one-day sale? Let us know below.
