32GB Nexus 7 Appears in the Wild

With rumors of a 32GB Nexus 7 going rampant last week, could the above image finally settle the deal? It comes from a Twitter user who says he was mistakenly sent a 32GB variant when he had first put in an order for a 16GB model. The device shipped in a 16GB box, so it’s being reported as a large mistake on the manufacturer’s part. From what we can clearly see in the picture, the available memory after what the OS consumes is 27.58GB.

So we’re basically back to the same questions – when, where, and how much?

    Sorry, but even if it was 64 gig wouldn’t be all that excited. Give me a 10″ screen and then you’ll have my attention.

  • cheezer88

    the real question is, what phone is taking the photo in the reflection?

    • Steven Cornea

      I was thinking the same thing, looks like a 4S if you ask me

  • levi

    Kinda funny how its been there all this time and it just now surfaces when a rumor comes out? Smells fishy to me. But I’d sell my 16gb and buy that one.

  • So sad that’s how companies get consumers to spend more, I could imagine all those fooled by this old Apple trick

  • lightlong

    27.58 is a strange way to say 32

    • cleetose

      “available memory after what the OS consumes is 27.58GB.”

      Reading is fundamental!

    Nice photoshop.

      this is actually quite possible. I got sent a 16gb S III from verizon, even though the sticker on the back claimed it was a 32gb. And on Verizon’s website it shows as a 32gb.

  • I keep throwing my money at the screen, but no nexus appears….what gives

    • Jem

      Probably your overused comment.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    WTF ever google… this should have been a launch size…8GB was disrespectful and 16 barely makes the grade.

    • Brent Stewart

      That’s my feelings as well. And while I quite love my 16g Nexus 7. I’ll be pretty annoyed if Google drops the 8 and 16g prices and sells the 32g for the same or less than what I pre-paid for my 16g. Curse you early adopter tax.

      • Royal2000H

        But you’ve also had the nexus 7 and have been using it for a while.

        If you preordered it for a sum of money, and then on release day, they suddenly dropped the price, that’s one thing. But things naturally drop price over time, especially when new models come out.

  • I’m thinking 8 gb for 150, 16 gb for 200, and 32 gb for 250.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      That useless 8GB should be $50

      • zepfloyd

        Probably $99. That was the big rumor a few weeks ago about $99 one by year end.

        • LionStone

          Dang, they’re gonna keep kill it all the way thru the holidays…people will say, “Hmm, I can buy one mini iPad or 3 N7’s…”

  • gotsmw

    zoom into the numbers and words, and then into just a black space….. youll see the difference, now take a picture of your N7 and do it, that difference isnt there???


    Awesome. Still waiting on the 10″ version, though!

    • Lactose_the_Intolerant

      Indeed! That’s the only thing that would move the GED wifi Xoom out of my hands.

  • J Nano

    Thats Japanese

  • Richard Garrison

    Did they finally fix the screen lift?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      The replacements seemed to be fixed… I preorder had to send back my first.. the second was fine.

  • KennyVeltre

    Well i would really like one of those.

  • Droid4LifeDawg

    So, whatever language that is, their numbering system is in english…

    • Unexpectedwalrus

      Arabic, actually.

      • Droid4LifeDawg

        I checked the twitter Google translated Japanese to english and we know they have their own numbering system

        • Unexpectedwalrus

          No, the numerals. They are Arabic numerals.

        • Ryuuie

          The Japanese don’t have their own numbering system.

    • Paul

      Technically it’s Arabic, but I get your point.

    • Ryuuie

      The language is in Japanese, the numbers are Arabic.
