Popular gadget reseller says new Nexus 7 isn’t attracting iPad owners

On Wednesday, Google unveiled a new version of its Nexus 7 tablet. And on paper, it looks great. It’s both thinner and lighter than its predecessor, and features a number of upgrades, like a hi-res 1,920 x 1,200 display. But so far, iPad users aren’t impressed.

That’s at least according to electronics buyback site Gazelle. The company says it hasn’t seen any kind of spike in iPad trade-ins since the new Nexus 7 was introduced, or in the rumor-filled weeks leading up to it. But first-gen Nexus 7 trade-ins on the other hand…

Google unveils new Nexus 7, Google Play Games and Chromecast TV dongle

You tell us!), we’re hearing now that Google and its manufacturing partner Asus are working on a 2nd gen Nexus. The re-tooled version of the popular low-cost tablet is said to sport a display with 1080p resolution (1,920-by-1,080 pixels) and the skinnier side bezels akin to Apple’s iPad mini.
