UK Retailer Confirms 32GB Nexus 7 for the Holidays

A couple of weeks ago, we broke news over a 32GB Nexus 7 that was headed to UK retailers. Since then, numerous reports have come out to solidify that report, but today’s might be the nail in the coffin. UK retailer Argos released its Christmas shopping guide this week that includes a listing for the new 32GB Nexus 7. It’s listed at £199.99, the same price as the current 16GB model. I’d say there is a good chance that the 16GB model disappears after all.

    It’s the real deal folks. Mine has shipped and will be here on Monday (in the US).

    Gotta love all the “know-it-alls” on the interwebz. LOL.

    So my Wife is a Chrome Specialist at a Best Buy for Google. They just learned of a program change today. Google sent new shirts and badges out that dropped the Chrome logo making them Google Specialist. Changing the program to include Android phones and tablets. Also changing the store sites setup in the next few weeks.

    $199.99 – that’s in (UK) Pounds correct? Which means US $322.96.

      It must have just changed a little because I got $323.0438

        But in the UK they are also taxed heavily on all imports and also pay a hefty sales tax. I think they average, over all, paying about 30% taxes on everything they buy.

      Retail in the US is $249. At least that’s what I paid.

    I am thinking this is going to coincide with the Apple iPad mini event next week. They figure Apple is going to have 16gb and 32gb varieties, so they better match their offering with what will more than likely be a lower price point. The 8gb will go away, no way they can sell it for 99 bucks in the current configuration since they are already selling it at cost, and 8gb does not cost $100.

  • Adam Barrett

    My personal guess is the 8GB becomes the rumored $99 tablet, the 16GB become $199 and the 32GB becomes the $249…

  • Roberto Taylor

    And this is the ONLY reason why I waited on purchasing one. I knew they’d be releasing a 32GB option… :D

      But now you have to wait and see if they release a 64GB Nexus 7, or a new tablet of its size but with a better processor etc.

      The nice thing about laptops is you could easily upgrade parts of it. Too bad we can’t do that with phones/tablets.

      • Roberto Taylor

        32GB is more than enough space for me. I’d be happy with that.

  • Guest

    I’d spend more money on one that had an external storage option than I would one with 32,

      The Samsung Tab 2 7″ has a couple of extra features that the Nexus 7 doesn’t have but sadly it also only has a dual core CPU and a non HD screen.

    why is everyone saying the 16gb will disappear? why wouldn’t they just make it 16gb $199 and 32gb $249? I mean if 8gb stays at $199 then that is ridiculous

    • Mike Yost

      This is actually somewhat interesting, as much as we have heard about the 16 and 32 GB variants we have yet to hear how the pricing of the 8 GB model will be affected.

    Just release it already. I want a 32gb N7. You know tomorrow is my birthday it would be a very sweet gift if google would just take my money and give me one.

  • Mr. Yamaguchi

    Fake

    • Mike Yost

      I really don’t think so, the texture over the “32 GB” looks the same as the rest of the ad.

  • KleenDroid

    Amazing, I think I will finally pick one up.
