Nexus 7 16GB to be replaced with rumored 32GB model

Slash Gear – Unsurprisingly, the rumored 32GB Nexus 7 is in our faces once again, but it’s sliding closer and closer to hopefully being a reality. An anonymous source who works for a hardware reseller spotted something interesting on its listing for the 16GB Nexus 7. Apparently the listing hints at replacing the 16GB with the 32GB model.

This could possibly mean that the 32GB Nexus 7 will get the same $250 price point as the 16GB version. Then again, if the 32GB is replacing the 16GB, will there be a replacement for the 8GB model as well? It would seem odd if Google only offered either a lowly 8GB version and then a 32GB model.

Then again it might also be possibly that the 16GB model will be sticking around, but it will merely just replace the 8GB model, effectively ending the life of the 8GB version for good. This would leave Googlewith 16GB and 32GB models, which would be ideal if they want to compete with the rest of the 7-inch tablet market.

Rumors about a 32GB Nexus 7 first started flying around when it was spotted in an inventory listing at a warehouse. Then, just a couple days ago, what looked to be an actual 32GB model was accidentally shipped to a customer in Japan who ordered the 16GB version off of the Google Play store. Whether or we’ll see a Nexus 7 with 32GB of built-in storage hit the Google Play store is still a mystery. Hopefully we’ll find out before the holiday season begins.
