Hi, guys theres a guy who wants to sell two nexus 7 1st generations for $150 all together. They're 32GB & 8GB, and both in very good condition. Should I get them and resell them to make a profit?

You mean 32GB and 16GB. I'd probably see if they can both be plugged in for about an hour to see the battery takes a charge and are a minimum of 25% at that point. If they do then don't pay more than $100 for both. Looking at ebay a 16GB just sold for $80 with free shipping. Thus your profit may be pretty slim.

And it looks like Google is about to announce a Nexus 8 with a bigger screen, to replace the 7 line. The value of these used 7's may drop quickly.

I doubt it will entirely replace the Nexus 7.

Here is a recent article:

Nexus 8: 6 Things We Know So Far

A 7" tablet is easier to carry around than an 8".

I've owned both a 7" Nexus and an 8" (different brand), and the 7" is more portable.

Plus a 7" tablet can be sold cheaper, so some consumers may not want to spend $299 for an 8".

I think the Nexus 8, will be an additional tablet in Google's line up, along with the Nexus 10.

I doubt you'll make a huge profit.

I bought my 1st gen Nexus 7 32gb for $100 last fall. It was in excellent condition, and had the original box, plus a fitted case/stand.

I occasionally saw others selling the 1st gen 32gb on Craigslist for around $100 as well.

The 8GB wont be as easy to sell as the 32GB, so you'll probably have to ask less.

I remember, Gamestop was blowing them out for $99 I drove to all of them in my area, and couldn't find one

I have an 8 GB 2012 Nexus 7. It's perfectly fine if you don't need to load it with music and movies, and I don't.
