32GB model of Nexus 7 selling in stores

Rumors of Nexus 7 with a 32GB storage capacity turned out to be true as confirmed by a tip given to The Verge by one of their avid readers. But that’s not the only thing that’s intriguing about this find.

After purchasing the 8GB variant of the Nexus 7 just a few days back, one of The Verge’s reader called Staples to confirm if the retailer already has the 32GB model in stock. After getting a confirmation that it is indeed available, he immediately head on over to the nearest Staples with his days’ old N7, returned it and paid the difference for the 32GB one.


Staples is offering the 32GB Nexus 7 for USD249 which is the same price as the 16GB model. To balance this out, the retailer is bring the latter’s price down to USD199. So what happened to the 8GB version? Well it is said that it will no longer be offered by the retail giant and that both the 32GB and 16GB models will officially go on sale the 29th of this month.

It’s still uncertain if Google will follow the same path that Staples took and discontinue the 8GB version of their famous tablet to give way to the 32GB Nexus 7. We’re hoping that the search giant will just mark down the price of the 8GB version to around USD149, instead of totally pulling the plug on it. What do you guys think?

    Nexus 7 32gb = $249
    iPad Mini 8g = $389

    oh Tim, you and your crazy greed

    • Ew. Someone must be an idiot to buy an iPad Mini.

    • ceegii63

      hence the i in iOS

    • Dude, there’s no 8GB version for the iPad mini coz it starts at 16GB priced at 329 dollars (Wi-Fi only). Now if only Google Nexus 7 will be released in 64GB and maybe 128GB, then that would level up the competition.

  2. Please please google, come up with the cellular version already. I’ll be buying one !! I’ll be using it as a phone tbh. As long as it’ll have calling and texting functionalities aside from data.

  3. yeah.. i think that they should just sell the 8gb because like me planning to purchase a 5″ phone i dont really need a phone/call/sms feature for a tablet, i just want something bigger to browse and use as ebook reader.. dont really need 16 or 32

  4. Fantastic goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely excellent.
