Following yesterday's price drop at GameStop, it looks like the Nexus 7 is slashing prices everywhere. Staples, Sam's Club, Office Depot, Wal-Mart, and a few other places all list the tablet at $199 (or a rough foreign equivalent). What's a little more rare is the 32GB Nexus 7 going up for sale in a few locations, though it's unclear how approved that is. Sam's Club has it up for order here, and PC Advisor is reporting that at least one user was able to buy the slate from PC World by asking for it, though it wasn't on display. Read More
We've been following the 32GB Nexus 7 meticulously over the past few weeks, and we're pretty sure it's going to be announced soon, possibly alongside a 3G variant of Google's hit 7" tablet. Of course, one of the most significant aspects of the 32GB N7's story is that it's expected to ring in at a $249 price-point, with the 16GB variant dropping down to $199.
We saw some proof of that earlier today at certain Office Depot locations, but now we have one more drop in the bucket – the 16GB Nexus 7 has gotten a price slash on GameStop's website, down to – you guessed it – $199. Read More
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. Read More
The rich, laminated oak on an antique writing desk. The captivating sheen on a mug of Bolivian coffee. The slight give as your hand caresses the supple exterior of an exquisitely-tanned saddle. If all these things put you in mind of a new smartphone, then you're a very strange person, and the prime consumer target for the latest flavor of Samsung's Galaxy S III. The "Amber Brown" version of the Galaxy S III is now available directly from Verizon, apparently ready to ship. Read More
If you're among the many, many potential Nexus 7 users who think that 8GB (or even 16GB) is a little on the wimpy side for a modern tablet, you may have cause to celebrate soon enough. The Spanish storefront of Phone House (the international arm of UK-based Carphone Warehouse) has a promotional page up for the Google-branded tablet in a 32GB flavor, listing for 279€. My Spanish is a little rusty, but it looks like the typical "sign up for more information" pre-sale page. Read More
Well, that's one way to announce a new device. Today on Twitter, Japanese user @oppese posted two photos of a Nexus 7 tablet. The first photo shows the storage screen displaying 27.58GB of usable space (indicating a 32GB model), and the second shows packaging for a 16GB Nexus 7. We've heard before that some stores are setting up a place for the higher capacity Nexus 7 on their shelves, but it appears this unit was mistakenly sent to a customer ahead of the full launch.

There have been rumors over the last few weeks that Google and Asus are planning to release a new version of the Nexus 7 with 32GB of storage. We previously saw a screenshot from a Carphone Warehouse inventory computer that included this device. Now we've found not one, not two, but three more online listings for the 32GB Nexus 7. This is looking like a lock, folks.
All three listings have the same part number and two of them have a matching UPC included. Read More
You know what I hate about the Nexus 7? Nothing. But I dislike the limited amount of storage - 16GB just isn't enough, especially considering the size of games like Horn and The Bard's Tale. What I'd really like to see is a 32GB version of the device, and according to a leaked Carphone Warehouse screenshot that showed up over at Droid Life, that dream may actually come to fruition.

A high capacity microSD card is a good upgrade for any power user, even if at first blush you don't think the space is required. From my own experience, I never thought I needed one for extra space - I always had plenty enough storage as it was, or so I thought. But then I tried rooting a tablet and realized I needed a microSD card to do so, so sure enough, I ordered one. Read More
