Rumors on the upcoming release of the 32GB Nexus 7 tablet continue to pour in though Google and Asus are still mum on the availability of the slate.According to the latest hearsay, Google plans to replace the current 16GB Nexus 7 model with the 32GB version. Apparently, the former will be phased out for unknown reasons.
One of the first lucky owners of a 32GB Nexus 7 tablet is a Japanese Android enthusiast who ordered the 16GB model, but got the former instead.
Given the latest happenings we can safely assume that Google will soon start selling the 32GB Nexus 7, so all that remains is to find out for what price and where exactly it will be available for purchase.
We suspect the slate will go on sale on Google Play store, but also at leading retailers from various countries.
In this regard, it looks like Carphone Warehouse is among those authorized resellers that will be offering the 32GB Nexus 7 tablet in the following weeks.
The slate is now listed at Carphone Warehouse Spain for 279 EUR (360 USD) outright, but the retailer does not offer any details on the tablet’s availability.
In comparison, the 16GB model can be purchased in Spain for 249 EUR (320 USD), but we’re not sure for how long it will still be available.
Aside from the boost in storage, there is no evidence that the 32GB version would come up with anything new in terms of hardware or software.
Just like the previous models, the 32GB Nexus 7 model listed by Carphone Warehouse Spain does not offer GSM support.
Instead, it comes with 32GB internal memory and a 7.0-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display with 800 x 1280 pixels resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass coating. The upcoming 32GB Nexus 7 is available here.
