A 32 gigabyte capacity Google Nexus 7 has been long rumored to be in the pipeline. But even before Google’s official announcement, some retailers seem to have inadvertently listed the product already. For one, Office Depot was reported to have listed the 32 GB Nexus 7 on its retail site, priced at US$ 249.99.
What’s interesting to note here is that the 32GB model is priced the same as the 16GB model, which also sells for $249.99 at various retail stores and on Google’s own Play Store. Google is expected to announce new products this coming October 29, which may include the 32GB Nexus 7 model, as well as a rumored 10-inch Nexus tablet and Android 4.2. With the Office Depot leak, we might expect Google to reduce prices for the current 16 and 8GB models. Some international retailers have already discounted the 16GB model in anticipation for the upgrade.
But Office Depot seems to have pulled out the item. As an update, the retailer has de-listed the 32GB Nexus 7:

Listing may have just been a mistake, although with just a few days before the expected launch, the pricing seems plausible. Perhaps folks interested in buying a 16GB Nexus 7 should hold off until we get an official announcement. You might get a better-spec’d tablet for the same price by Monday.
Is anyone excited for a 32 GB Nexus 7? Or does the prospect of a Nexus 10 appeal to you more?
