Reports of a 32GB Nexus 7 have been circulating for the past week or so, and fresh details emerging today suggest there could be more to the device mere rumor. First up are reports from a Japanese Nexus 7 buyer on Twitter, who claims to have been mistakenly shipped one of the 32GB units. The tablet purchased by Twitter user @oppese was reportedly boxed up and labeled as the 16GB model, but when powered on revealed a total of 27GB available for media storage, after the 5GB or so reserved for the OS.
And another leaked inventory screen is doing the rounds today, purportedly from UK retailer Dixons Stores Group (Currys/PC World). The shot shows the 32GB Nexus 7 priced at £199.99, same as the current price for the 16GB model. If this image is accurate, it stands to reason that the 32GB model might replace the 16GB version at the $250 price point in other territories, likely leading to a further price cut on the 8GB and 16GB Nexuses.
None of this is officially confirmed, but with Apple's 7.8-inch iPad due to make its debut in the next couple of weeks, we're sure Google and ASUS will be looking for ways to remain competitive in the 7-inch tablet space.
