It’s no secret that the Google Nexus 7 has been wildly successful. Other than the gripe that there aren’t enough ports, the other complaint has been storage. Then a rumor surfaced that a 32 GB version was in the works and due to debut around October 24th. Some doubted, some cheered, but it turns out that one lucky customer in Japan has already received his!
Once again an accidental shipment encourages belief that the 32 GB version is real and coming soon. The Google Play store in Japan accidentally sent a customer a 32 GB version instead of the 16 GB he ordered. Naturally photos of the box and the capacity on screen were promptly posted on Twitter. What a happy accident!
Presumably when the 32 GB version officially becomes available, Google will keep in line with its affordability policy. Price estimates place this version from $269 to $272. If the general consensus is correct, the very well equipped Nexus 7 will arrive around the exact same time as the infamous iPad Mini. This could make for some interesting competition.
