A version of Google's Nexus 7 tablet with 32GB of storage could launch as early as this week in the UK, according to reports. UK tech site ITProPortal says it's heard via retail sources that the 32GB Nexus 7 will appear in a Christmas gift guide for catalog chain Argos, priced at £199.99. The site reports that the 32GB version will replace the 16GB model at this price point, and that the 8GB model will continue to be sold at its current £159 price.

A 32GB Nexus 7 has been rumored for the past several weeks, and in one case it seems 32GB model was even shipped to one Japanese buyer in place of a 16GB unit. If the rumors are accurate, the additional storage would address one major complaint leveled against the ASUS-made Nexus tablet -- on the 8GB model, just under 6GB is actually available for use.

It's entirely possible that Argos could be jumping the gun with a 32GB Nexus 7 in its upcoming catalog. But with more Nexus announcements likely to be made later this month, we wouldn't be surprised to see an upgraded Nexus 7 sooner rather than later.

32GB Nexus 7 tipped for imminent launch in the UK


How about start selling it to the rest of the world first and then upgrade it in the already "privileged" countries???

I bought the 8GB because I was going cheap since an extra 8GB and only 16GB total wasn't worth an extra $50 to me. I knew I'd be buying my Nexus for streaming only and a few casual apps. I would have sprung for a 32GB model if it was $250.

There's a choice between 8GB and 16GB, and 16GB vs 32GB; but between 8GB and 32GB you'd be mad not to get the 32GB.

If the 32GB comes in at the older 16GB's price Apple has a Big problem. Reports from ZDnet are that the 8GB model will be at 249.99. So if that is true, for the same price you can get 4 times the storage on a very comparable device. Oh yeah Apple may have blown this one.

I read somewhere pricing for the iPad Mini is likely to start at the Euro equivalent of 320 USD. That's really pushing the pricing limits of the market for "economy" 7" tablets. I tend to believe this because $320 puts it a hair above the lowest price point of the new iPod Touch, which starts at $300 for the 32 GB version.

I will say that it is darn exciting to be into gadgets right now. Google, Apple, and Microsoft all have new stuff rumored to be coming out in the next eight weeks.

if apple really wanted to be even smarter and dominate even more they would follow the gooogle and Amazon model. Sale the device cheaper bc if anyone is going to make oney in the app side it would be Apple. I guess they cant see the larger picture over the upfront profit.

How about a white version? I dont think its asking too much, especially since Apple produces 2 colors of iPad

New Pricing Structure:

8 Gig = $99.00

16 Gig = $199.00

32 Gig = $249.00

Glad I waited.. The 32 Gig will be the way to go.

This Item Should Be In Stock For Black Friday / Cyber Monday Shoppers in 6 weeks..

8, 16, 32 GB... does it really matter? What is important to note here is this tablet is made by ASUS. Just stay away! :D

Anyway, good luck to whoever buys from them.

They're actually pretty nice tablets in my opinion. Sorry to hear you're not a fan.
Really wish they'd done a 32GB version in the first place though. I'm not lacking in storage with my 16GB version at all, but it'd be nice to have the extra space in the event I want to use more.
Whatever though. I'll live.

If you have a working tablet, I envy you. Just don't part from it!

The Nexus 7 as the Infinity are wonderful tablet, I really wanted to own an Infinity but I had to return so many defect units I finally decided to give up. Even if I were to find a working set now, I wouldn't trust it to last, and I've got a taste of ASUS customer service a few times: it's just weeks of waiting for nothing.

Add on top of that the terrible support when you find nasty bugs or ridiculous features (smart dimmer is a good example), and you'll see it's easy to get wary of them.

Seeing all the problems people have with the Nexus 7 screen, I have a feeling of deja-vu. They have not changed a bit since their motherboard era, where you could fry your RAM just by upgrading the BIOS, so bad the procedure was (been there, done that).

No, really. It's been tempting but once you've experienced it, you know it's too risky. Hopefully one day they'll hear about quality control, then maybe it'll be time to reconsider :)
