Deal Alert: Google Nexus 9 16GB WiFi (white) $320 shipped (Reg. $400)

From 9to5Toys.com:

Office Depot is currently offering up the Nexus 9 for $319.99, coming in at an $80 discount from the retail $400 price tag. This device is HTC-made, and Google sells it from the Play Store for $399 in two colors (or 3 colors for the 32 GB variant). This deal is only for the white 16 GB model, but Office Depot is also listing deals for other models as well. The black 16 GB model is available for $349.99, and both the black and white 32 GB models are available for $429.99 (Reg. $479.99).

It’s not often that we such great deals for current-generation Nexus devices, so if this interests you, you might want to act quick. All four models (including the cheapest one) are still in stock at the time of this writing, and they all ship for free in 3-5 days. It’s also worth noting that Office Depot is also offering a 20% off any single item promotion on its website, which could get you some decent deals on other Google-y gear. This coupon can’t be combo’d with this item, however, as it is already discounted.

If you aren’t quite sure if the Nexus 9 is for you, be sure to check out our review of the device to see how Google’s latest tablet from HTC stacks up against the competition.

Google: 20M students and faculty use Google Apps for education, enterprise business ‘strong in retail sector’

During the Q3 2012 earnings call, Google software engineer Amit Singh just elaborated on the company’s enterprise business via Google+ (text version below):

The latest on Enterprise business @ Google from #google earnings. More Fortune 500 companies are #gonegoogle

Our Enterprise business continues to grow at an astounding pace as more and more companies and schools ‘Go Google’ and move to the cloud. We saw especially strong traction in the retail sector with Dillard’s, Kohl’s, Office Depot all using Google’s enterprise products.  In education, there are over 20M students, faculty and staff now on Google Apps, including Princeton, Virginia Tech, and the Philippines Department of Education, which has over 600,000 users. And with the launch of Google+ for enterprise customers, organizations of all sizes including Kaplan and Banshee Wines are starting to use our Hangouts and other tools to work together and get things done from anywhere.

Google Apps features several cloud-based Web applications that are similar to traditional office suites. The services vary per edition but generally include: Docs, Gmail, Calendar, Talk, Sites, Groups, Video, and Marketplace. Google Apps’ popularity among businesses and academicians has rapidly increased due to enhanced sharing features, accessibility, and cost.

Google has encouraged businesses and educational institutions to go Google with Google Apps since May as part of its “Go Google” campaign.

With Google and several retailers accepting preorders for the new Nexus 7 tablet leading up to last week’s launch, it appears Google is selling the device as quickly as it can ship it to retailers. As noted by CNET, several of Google’s key retail partners, including GameStop, Staples, Sam’s Club, and Office Depot, now list the device as backordered, sold out, or out of stock.

It looks like Google’s initial wave of units has run out. However, some customers report there is limited stock at select brick-and-mortar locations for some of these retailers, despite lack of online availability. Canadian retailers, such as BestBuy.ca and Staples.ca, are also listing the device as out of stock, while Google Play still lists shipping to both the U.S. and Canada as “1-2 weeks“.
