Just weeks after British newspaper The Times started offering subsidized Nexus 7 tablets and The Financial Times has gone one better by offering Google’s tablet for free to print or digital subscribers in the U.S.
The offer, first detailed in the print newspaper today, will be offered to readers signing up for a one-year digital or print subscription and will run until December 17. The deal only applies to Google's 8GB Nexus 7 tablet, which usually retails for $199.
A digital-only subscription to the FT starts at $447 per year, while annual access to both the print and digital editions comes in at $597.
Such news marks the second time a prominent newspaper has offered the Nexus 7 at a discounted rate, following a similar offer from The Times of the UK earlier this month.
Two weeks ago the British newspaper announced that it would offer the WiFi-only 32GB Nexus 7 for £50 ($80) to readers who signed up for a 'Digital Pack' subscription.
