[Update] Google/ASUS Nexus 7 32GB all but confirmed
UPDATE: The 32GB Google Nexus 7 is a reality. The Verge reports the 32GB variant being bought at a local Staples, which verifies the information below. The storage is similar to those of the Japanese customer, and are probably not faked (unlike the Nexus X). There has been no official announcement by Google however.
While the Nexus 7 has been out for some time now, bringing Jelly Bean to the world, it was only available in 8GB and 16GB variants. According to Android Police , the rumoured 32GB variant has popped up on various sites such as Staples Advantage (as well as Carphone Warehouse and the Spanish variant) , selling for less than $250.
There was also an incident where a customer in Japan reported having received the 32GB variant by accident. He had ordered a 16GB and posted photos confirming the existence of the latter.
Looking back at the HP TouchPad ‘firesale’, the 32GB version was most sought after. Its nice to see Google finally respond to demand for a Nexus 7 with greater storage especially since it was the flagship device for Jelly Bean.
If you’re thinking of buying a tablet, expect the Google Nexus 7 32GB to come very soon.
