After countless rumors and no official word from Google, it appears that the 32GB Nexus 7 is now a reality. It appears that the device is now currently in stock at Staples. They are not yet on sale though and there is no indication when they will be. The reason Google has stayed so quiet about the upgraded memory capacity is undoubtedly due to the Android event scheduled for October 29th, where we will mostly like receive an official announcement.

The device appears to be exactly the same but with a higher storage capacity. In fact, the rumored price is set to be $250. That’s right, that’s the exact price that Google originally sold the 16GB model for. This clearly suggests that the 32GB model is set to phase out the 16GB model. Or perhaps Google will drop the price of the 16gb model and phase out the 8gb model.

Regardless, this could annoy some customers, especially those who bought the 16GB model at launch. What do you think about this move? If you bought a 16GB model, are you upset that you will soon be able to get double the storage capacity for the exact same price?
