We already know the 32GB Nexus 7 exists. Some guy actually got one by mistake - in Japan. We've seen it at online stores in the US, online stores in Europe, and even Canada. It is bar-none Google's worst-kept secret ever.

What we have not seen, though, is a 32GB Nexus 7 actually physically in these United States. As of today, we know they're here - at Staples.

So yes, the Nexus 7 32GB is 100% imminent. We're fully expecting it to be announced at Google's October 29th event in New York, along with the Nexus 4, and Android 4.2. And possibly a new, bigger Nexus tablet. As for the pricing we're quoting in the title ($250 - yes please), that comes from an internal Staples database, shown below.

We're as hopeful as everyone else on that number. We'll be keeping a close eye on this in the next week or two, as there are no indications in any of these photos of a release date, but we fully expect a lot more 32GB N7 sightings before October 29th. The odd thing is, it seems like Google doesn't really care about keeping this one under wraps.

Thanks, Anon!

    I bought my Nexus 7 16GB two weeks ago, because that's when it launched here in Denmark. If the 32gb pops up next month for the price, I'm demanding my money back.

      Good luck getting it back.

        Yeah that's properly not gonna happen, but that doesn't mean Asus and Google will avoid a complaint. But I doubt they are going to launch the 32gb in the country at all, we still got people who can't get the 16gb. It would be wise of them to wait for the 3G versions if they want to add an 32gb version.

    • Vojtěch Boček

      I think that if they do some kind of refund, it will be just the $50 as Google Play credit (assuming the 16gb version will cost $200) :(

    Whooooooooooo!!! I'm so glad I waited. I was willing to pay, according to initial pricing scale, $300 for a 32GB model, but I am glad that they are doing this. They should start selling the 8GB @ a lost for $99, and keep the 16/32GB models at the $200/$249 price points, respectively.

    This is why you wait, and don't buy new releases of any electronics. I pre-ordered the T-Mobile G2 and I had to exchange three times! And here again, prime example... they are updating a recent model.

      unless it's a Nexus Q, then you could get it for free!

      Or never buy anything ever! Something better is always coming.

    I bought a 16GB Nexus 7 in the summer and got the $25 play store credit. So basically your really only out $25 bucks. I don't feel i am owed $25 bucks,people should be happy for what they have.

  • Thornfist

    I went to my local San Mateo staples and they looked at me as if I was insane when I made them check to see if they had it.

  • fixxmyhead

    fuck this. just gonna wait next time

  • Brandenlee

    This is weird. I can't find not one anywhere I live or from google themselves. But yet some people are getting one with serial numbers, part codes, etc on the box.

  • Mike

    Was going to get my daughter a 16 gig for christmas since she likes mine so much...now it looks like I'll be geting a new 32 gig and she will be getting a slightly used 16 gig.

    I'd like a 128GB to mount in my car plz.

    • Gitanillo

  • Nick

    Too bad the local Staples was shut down 5 years ago.

    Cannot believe that I just noticed that the tablet bezel is placed to look like a 7 on the box.
