Same-Priced Nexus 7 with Twice the Storage 'Confirmed'
Android Central

Google will be releasing a 32GB Nexus 7 in time for the holiday season, UK, Dutch, and U.S. retailers confirmed. UK retailer Argos' Christmas gift guide says the device can be purchased for £199.99, just 99 pence more than the existing variant with 16GB of storage. Staples Advantage's website says that a 32GB model would be available for $248.37 starting October 18th. Dutch retailer MyCom meanwhile reportedly e-mailed customers who ordered the 16GB model that they'd be receiving 32GB model instead with no extra charge. Previous reports, which cited unnamed sources, claimed that Google will phase out the $249 16GB model, and will be selling 8GB and 32GB variants for $199 and $249 in the fourth quarter of the year.

What Else You Need To Know

  • The Nexus 7, which was co-developed by Asus and Google, emerged as second best-selling tablet in the past three months. Apple's iPad continues to be the top tablet.
  • The Nexus 7 tablet released in July has been lauded for its powerful quad-core processor, high resolution display, built-in NFC, and Jelly Bean operating system, but hit for its lack of an SD card and cellular connectivity.

32GB Nexus 7 tablet could go on sale this week  

Many retailers have been dropping the price of the 16GB version, which further shows the likelihood of a 32GB version hitting the market just in time for the holidays. Google has not officially confirmed the existence of a 32GB version of the popular tablet. Asus has also not said a word about the official existence of this device.

Recent rumors claim that the 16GB model will be phased out once the 32GB variant is on the scene, and this listing backs up that claim. In other words, if you were thinking of picking up a 16GB Nexus 7, it might be a better idea to wait and see if the 32GB model gets an official announcement.

Staples has is listed as being available on October 18 — as in two days from now. It seems a bit strange that the tablet would be coming on the 18th and we have yet to hear anything official. But then again, stranger things have happened in the past.
