Mountain View-based Internet giant Google and its partners are gearing up for the release of a new flavor of the Nexus 7 tablet PC, and some more proof on the matter is now available.
Rumor has it that the company is preparing a 32GB version of Nexus 7 for availability, and that it will either remove the current versions from sale, or that it will make them available at significantly lower price tags.
The 32GB flavor
of the tablet PC has emerged over at Office Depot stores around the country, in preparation for the official launch, which should have happened today.
Unfortunately for enthusiasts, Google has postponed the event due to Hurricane Sandy and hasn’t announced a new date for it as of now.
“We are canceling our Monday morning event in New York due to Hurricane Sandy. We will let you know our plans as soon as we know more,” the company announced, a recent post on TalkAndroid
The 32GB Nexus 7, however, is making more often appearances, which clearly suggests that it is almost here (the photo available to the left, courtesy of Droid-life
, is another proof of that).
The price tag
for it has been unveiled as well, namely $249 (around €193), which is the same as the current cost of the 16GB flavor. The latter should drop by $50, thus being made available for purchase at $199 (€154) as soon as the larger capacity tablet iteration arrives.
Google hasn’t said anything on the matter as of now, but the 16GB version of Nexus 7 is currently listed as out of stock in Google Play.
With the “coming soon” tag next to it, this flavor of the device could return to the online portal with the aforementioned lower price tag attached to it as soon as Google puts everything back in order.
What remains to be seen is whether Google will wait for said event to take place before announcing the new version of the device, or it would make the move a bit earlier than that. Stay tuned for more info on this.
