You May be Able to Order a 32GB Nexus 7 From Staples Today (Updated)

Aren’t interested in waiting for Google to announce the new Nexus 7 with 32GB of storage on October 29 in NYC? You may be able to order one from Staples, today.

One of our readers took the item number that leaked over the last week (#100604), contacted their sales department, and was able to purchase the device. As you can see from the order sheet above and the shipping info below, it has already left the shipping center and should arrive on his doorstep by October 22.

If you listened to the first episode of The Droid Life Show, then you probably heard us first report that some shipments were already arriving at distribution centers on 10/17, with mass shipments hitting locations on 11/7. What I’m saying, is that it is possible to order a new Nexus 7 today, because some locations do indeed have a few in stock.

Our reader started a chat with support through the Staples website and was then transferred to sales. Feel free to give it a shot and let us know how it goes!

Update:  Our reader said he just received a call from Staples, informing him that they had to cancel his order due to contract details with Google. He was told that he could re-order on October 29.

Cheers Jon!

    LOL. 1st rule of slickdeals is do not call customer service. 2nd rule is see 1st rule.

  • Larry

    Tried to buy it at 4 different staples stores today with no success. One store told me to come back next week. Other 3 stores say they don’t have it in stock.
    One office depot didn’t even know what I was talking about.
    I returned my 16gb last week and am having major withdrawal problems.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Dagnabbit! Should have waited.

    Haha, just kidding. I’ve enjoyed the hell out of my 16GB Nexus 7 for the last few months, no regrets.

  • Jean

    most staples already have them in stock i picked mines up already

  • EJ

    i actually picked mines up today i just exchanged my 16gb through the return policy and paid nothing plus i work there lol

  • George264

    Ok. I got the 16GB again last week at staples, guess where I’m going right now.

  • i live in DE where its tax free shopping! …but..its delaware.. 🙁

    • MrSteve920

      I feel ya dude.

  • they told me no they cant sell it till oct 29th… even if they have them at stores…

  • NYAvsFan

    Spoke to online support and they said the store near my house has 3 in stock. Called them and they have no idea what I’m talking about. Guess it’s time to try the 800 route.

  • Jon Coffey

    I’m beginning to wonder if I should have waited until the box was in my hands before I started lighting up my keyboard to the droid-life! 🙂

    Oh well.

  • Uday Kiran

    Call 800-333-3330 ask for item #100604 and place the order. I have just ordered one. The guy I chatted with (customer support) said that there was no conditions for sale and they had the stock in their warehouse. Expected delivery on Monday 22nd.

  • online i was told that they don’t have them. she checked a local store and they have it in stock. i called and they said they have it and they could sell it to me.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    meh. Don’t see why anyone with a 16 would go through the hassle . . . it’s whatever for me at this point. The 16 is working fine. Only thing nexus that interests me at all now is the phone.

    • Artune

      I only have 3 gigs left so I would go through the hassle, I think it’s worth it.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        SO I’m guessing you’re selling the 16

        • Artune

          Well I bought an extended one year warranty from staples so I can just switch them for the same price or wait until next year if I like the Nexus 10

          • George264

            Doesn’t work that way. If it’s after the 14 day, it has to be broken to be replaced, and also they will give you an exact same one, but refurbished, so no 32 unless you return, which I’m doing c:

    • mustbepbs

      I just use USB OTG and a 64GB USB stick. I only paid $225 for my 72GB Nexus 7 😛

    • Taylor Daniels

      I agree. I have plenty of space on mines and I have about 10 albums on it, and a bunch of comic books so I don’t have a problem with them releasing a 32GB version. My only problem is that its going to be the same price as the 16GB. That’s kinda shady of Google.

  • the best line I got so far was “You can call us at 1-800-333-3330 to preorder this however we are not sending them out at this time.” with no idea when its releasing

  • Chuck Finley

    Is it possible that Google releases the Nexus 7 32GB @ $249, then shifts the other two down in price (16GB @ $199, 8GB @ $99), thus giving us the $99 Nexus?

    Or is Google pretty much set on eliminating the 16GB or 8GB altogether?

    • Butters619

      I thought both Google and Asus said there would be no $99 tablet.

      • Chuck Finley

        If you go with semantics then you can say that they were correct, they’re not going to build a new $99 nexus, they’d just change the price of the 8GB.

    • Android Police is reporting that they have a leaked document suggesting the 8gb model is being discontinued:

      I know if I had bought the 16gb for $249 and then see that the 32gb will be the same price, I’d be a bit ticked.

      • mustbepbs

        But it came out over 3 months ago. Why be upset? Things get upgraded and marked down over time. It’s the price you pay (lol) when you’re an early adopter.

        • George264

          The problem is, if you bought the Nexus 7 16GB, last week. I returned the original one when it had problems, and got one again, and now off to return.

  • mini-me

    I looked everywhere and can’t find this to order. Any links to buy the nexus 7 (32gig)

  • FarmerTechno

    I’m both on hold and chatting. Both stating, “It’s in stock but not on the website, let me check the release status.” Fingers crossed!

  • cjgm86

    My cousin bought the 16 gb two weeks ago for the same price. Unfair

    • JoshGroff

      I bought mine release week. No regrets. Some stores will accept a return even after the 14 days if you have everything and the receipt and it’s flawless. Just have to ask really nicely.

      • cjgm86

        got mine release week too. Don’t get me wrong i love my nexus 7. i just think it is unfair for some people that bought 1 recently… Double the storage for the same price

        • JoshGroff

          Yeah. :/ Bit unfair, but that’s the price you pay for being an early adopter.

  • Artune

    Thank God I purchased a 1 year extended warranty, they said any issue or not I can return it and get cash back. I’ll be picking up the 32 whenever it comes out.

  • Gave it a shot, but got the “this is not a valid item number” response from the CSR. Oh well.

  • I just tried, on chat, lady said they dont carry that item yet.

  • Ivan Vargas

    i’m so trying this

  • bitpimpin

    10% sales tax? ouch

    • NexusPhan69

      Exactly what I was going to post. That is insane. I hope you have no (or very low) state level income tax.

    • JoshGroff

      Let’s throw away 30% of our income to the government, what a great idea… They do so much for us. /s

      • michael arazan

        !st, city’s have there own tax on top of fed taxes. And the government does do a lot, taxes go towards roads, schools, and those socialist programs like police and fire departments among a few of the many things.

        • JoshGroff

          And yet they still do fund raisers and ask for donations on top of it.

    • bitpimpin

      and immediately this thread turns into a rant about the 1% lol
