32GB Nexus 7 release date approaching, tablet to appear in UK Christmas gift guide this week

October 15, 2012

Considering the leaks and rumors we’ve seen lately, it’s no secret anymore that Google plans to release a 32GB Nexus 7 version at some point in the coming weeks/months.

In fact, today we hear from ITProPortal that the 32GB Nexus 7 will be officially listed this week in the UK in Argos’ Christmas gift guide, with a price starting at £199.99. That’s hardly a surprise, as the model was already officially listed on Carphone Warehouse’s Spanish website just a few days ago (image above).

According to the publication, the 32GB Nexus 7 will replace the 16GB version, while the 8GB flavor is expected to continue selling for £159.99 in the region.

As you may already know, the Nexus 7 will face some increasing competition this holiday season, not only from the new Kindle Fire line but also from upcoming devices such as the iPad mini, a direct threat to budget Android tablets, and the first Windows 8 tablets, including the Microsoft Surface. Therefore, it’s no wonder to see Google ready to sell a 32GB Nexus 7, especially considering that one of the main turn offs of the current Nexus 7 models is the limited amount of available storage – the lack of microSD expansion also doesn’t help.

However, we have no idea when Google will publicly unveil the new Nexus 7 version, although that should happen at some point in the near future, maybe during the LG Nexus 4 announcement event, considering Argos’ Christmas gift guide publishing schedule.

Let’s hear it from potential Nexus 7 buyers, what model are you going to buy in the following months the 8GB one, the discounted 16GB option or the upcoming 32GB version? Anyone angry for already purchasing the Nexus 7 now that the 32GB version is coming?

    I’ve definitely got my eye on a 32gb badboy!

  • lubos!

    discounted 16GB is a good choice i think!

    Was hoping for 8gb to be cheaper then have 16gb drop to 8gb price. Then 32gb would be at current 16gb price.

    It’s a bit annoying that I’ve only had the 16GB for a couple months and now there’s a 32 coming out. I bought picked the 16 over the 8 because of the lack of expandable storage. But the universe tends to unfold exactly as it should…

      I hear ya, got my 16Gb just 5 weeks ago. Would have loved double the storage space for the same money.

    Was holding off on getting a N7 but a 32GB one might tempt me. Early Christmas present!

    Very annoyed at buying a 16GB when they first came out and a upgraded version comes out weeks later for the same price.
