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…
It is almost getting to the point where we can classify this as another day and another 32GB Nexus 7 mention. That would certainly ring true today as another product listing has been discovered. The latest is on the Staples Advantage site, the side of Staples reserved for business users. That bit aside though, Staples has the 32GB model listed along side the 8GB and 16GB model.
There are a few catches though, for one the price. The listing is showing the tablet priced at $248.37, which is actually a few dollars less than the 16GB Nexus 7 tablet. Of course, this could suggest that the 8GB model is going away to be replaced by a 16GB and 32GB model. And that the 16GB and 32GB models will keep the previous price points of $199 and $249.
The other catch comes in the form of the availability date. Staples has is listed as being available on October 18 — as in two days from now. It seems a bit strange that the tablet would be coming on the 18th and we have yet to hear anything official. But then again, stranger things have happened in the past.
Otherwise, the 32GB Nexus 7 listing with Staples Advantage shows the remaining specs, which are the same as many have already come to love. In other words, the tablet will still feature the same 7-inch (1280 x 800) IPS HD display, quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, GPS, NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Bottom line here, at this point it seems that the arrival of the 32GB Nexus 7 is just a matter of when, as opposed to if.
