Look what a developer brought in

So this is kinda a gift to self. I saw a G+ post from a guy who was selling a N7 32gb Wi-Fi model, for € 240 including a case and a screen protector, which was a killer deal.
Anyways since this guy lived all across the country, I’ve given up the idea of getting it. So this guy who originally re-shared the post, had a N7, no cover or screen protector. And, I joked with him saying: “Hey wanna sell me yours? Give you €200.” The dude – a app developer – said said, “Yeah, ok. Deal!”

So that was pretty much it. Scored a 2013 Nexus 7 32gb Wi-Fi model, for less (roughly) 70€ :D
Some updates and tutorials coming soon ;)
