The based model will have 8GB of inbuilt memory and be priced at $199. Another model will be available with 16GB of inbuilt memory and will sell for $249. You need a locally issued credit card and billing address to order the device or else you will see an error message ” This seller does not accept payments from your location. Learn more.”
Google is also giving away a $25 credit along with the tablet to spend on Google Play and some free content including a copy of Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
