Google discounts Nexus-series cases (limited time only)


When it comes to Nexus devices – the smartphones and tablets themselves – it’s hard to argue that Google is giving shoppers anything other than absolutely stellar deals (at least in certain countries – we know all too well how much some of you wish you could see the same pricing/availability as the US enjoys). But for as great a value as so much of this hardware is, the accessories have been different stories altogether. Take the Nexus 5’s Google-calls-it-one-but-it’s-not-really-a-bumper case: 35 bucks for a piece of plastic. A well-designed and form-fitting piece of plastic, granted, but one that must be seeing some cuckoo bananas crazy-level markup in order to hit that $35 price. If you were hoping for some slightly more sensible pricing to arrive, today may be your lucky day, as we learn of 25% discounts on a variety of case options for both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7.

That means the Nexus 5’s “bumper” as well as the QuickCover flip case, and the zip-up sleeve, folder, and folio covers for the Nexus 7.

Google doesn’t say how long these discounts will be around, other than that they’re for a limited time only. Some of the items are already out of stock, so if this 25% savings is enough to push you over the edge and towards a purchase, you may want to act quickly.
