Nexus 7 - Price Gouging
Just noticed Tesco Ireland have upped the price of the 16Gb (yes, the 16Gb) Nexus 7 to Euro 279 per unit.
The recommended retail price of the 32Gb is 249- and its at 239 (but out of stock) in Dixons/Currys/PC World.
The 16Gb has a recommended retail price of Euro 199.
Total price gouging by Tesco..... wonder will Google take them to task?
Re: Nexus 7 - Price Gouging
Not sure why they would - it is only a recommended / suggested price after all. If it can be sold for more because the market is such that there is sufficient demand, then more power to them. If not, and all their tablets go unsold because people ar ebuying them elsewhere then they fail and have to reduce their price. Basic economics.
It's surprising, really, as most of the market for such devices are already online and can find better deals so readily.
What the market will bear
Google cannot mandate what Tesco charges - and nor will it try. If Tesco gets its calculations wrong - people won't buy and you can look forward to a stock clearance sale.
This is an example of why I don't rush out to be first in line to buy the latest gadgets. You generally do better waiting at least a month or two.
Maybe it's simply a way of later selling at the "normal" price but ticketing as n% off previously sold at £xxx and meaning it.
Simple case of taking advantage of the situation...
