Another day, another rumor on the upcoming 32GB Nexus 7 tablet. We already know for sure that Google plans to launch this model pretty soon.
According to the latest hearsay, the 32GB Nexus 7 will replace the 16GB model, which will be phased out for unknown reasons.
The good news is that the new and improved variant won't be more expansive than the current 16GB Nexus 7
However, this will probably upset Android fans who already own the 16GB version, especially that Google won't offer any compensations.
The 32GB Nexus 7's launch is still a mystery, though the tablet appeared online a few times and a lucky buyer from Japan even received one by mistake.
Today, more information on the upcoming model surface courtesy to the folks over at AndroidPolice
. Well, it looks like the slate has been recently listed at Staples Advantage, the retailer's online store for business users, with an estimated availability date of October 18.
Given the fact that this is just an estimated release date, it's likely to be subject to change, so we shouldn't get our hopes too high for the moment.
There's more to it, as the 32GB Google Nexus 7
tablet is priced a few bucks less than the 16GB model, which is a bit unusual and even “outrageous” for those who already own the latter.
For the time being, it appears that business customers can purchase the 32GB Nexus 7 for only $248.37 USD, while the 16GB version is priced at $251 USD.
The only difference between the two models is the amount of storage, so customers are likely to purchase the 32GB variant instead of the 16GB model, especially that the former is a bit cheaper.
Hopefully, Google will come up with an official announcement for the 32GB Nexus 7 tablet soon, so stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
