This! Looks like there's still stock. Where I am, at least.

Yeah, they must have gazillions.... even Argos Ireland have loads for the Euro equivalent.

Nexus 7 is pretty nice for that price (especially 32GB), but for £139.95 Morgan Computers have the 2013 16GB Model with 12 Month Warranty.

Personally I think it's worth the extra, the Snapdragon S4Pro (practically a 600), 2GB RAM and that 1920 x 1200 is beautiful (much better contrast and colour than the 2012 too). Oh and it feels much nicer too.

Also worth checking out is the Tegra Note 7, Curry's eBay site is selling it for £99.99

Feels very similar to the 2012 Nexus but is tiny bit lighter, has a Tegra 4, MicroSD slot & Micro HDMI. Definitely worth reading some comparison articles about the 2 online.

Lastly, Nook HD, the Nook doesn't do great with games but the Dual Core OMAP 4470 probably performs a little bit better than the Tegra 3 in the 2012 Nexus for normal processes (Jeff Bezos chose it for the Fire HD over using a Tegra 3).
Unfortunately just missed out on it being £50 from Curry's/PC World but it can be found fairly cheaply. Argos sell the 16GB for £90 and there's an eBay store selling Brand New condition customer returns for £55 (12 Month Warranty) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Barnes-Noble-Nook-HD-16GB-7-Google-Android-Tablet-e-Book-Reader-/171357519798?pt=UK_iPad_Tablets_eReaders&hash=item27e5b43fb6#viTabs_0
The Nook HD has a beautiful display! 1440 x 900 resolution, MicroSD slot too.
