Default 32 GB N7 on the way?

Just heard a rumor that maybe this is happening as the 16 GB version is being phased out. Hmm--maybe I'll see one under the tree this Christmas. (Of course I hope it will be a used one by then---by me. ) Maybe could do w/o SD card & be happy about it if this is true.

It seems it's true, I think more then one person got their hands on one already.
I thought one person got one as a replacement for his 16gb (by accident) in Japan.

If they phase out the 16gig and replace it with a 32 at the same price, I will not be a happy camper.

Big thank you to Google for shafting us early adopters who got the 16GB version only to then find that they're (possibly) doubling the storage for no price increase. Not good at all.

IF they come out with a 32gb version and IF it costs the same as the 16gb version then I will be annoyed. It would be like I got screwed out of and additional 16gb.

I've found that I can work with 16gb but could easily use the full 32gb. Right now I have very little music installed (relative to my GNex) and only 2 movies and I'm pretty full. I don't buy into streaming since I'm not always near a wifi connection.

Maybe Google will allow 16gb users to upgrade for free or for the cost of shipping? I totally made that up but dammit, I can dream!

I wouldn't be annoyed. The phone I have today is much better than the phone I had a year ago and they were the same price. It happens. Technology marches on. Right now I'm running a LAMP server (minus Apache for now) on my Nexus 7, with a Drupal website. Works pretty slick. Still working on OpenSSL to get HTTPS security in place. Have to find a VPN service that will give me a static IP so I can domain this thing. If I find one, I'll post my N7 website. If I could find a micro-usb to ethernet (or HD) solution that would keep my N7 charged at the same time.....well, I'd be in trouble with the lady because I'd buy 10 of these things, alias the DNS and be a mini-Facebook factory, LOL. My Nexus 7 server/web farm. Sitting on a bookshelf......

I'm praying for a 32GB model N7 or one with ext_SD like my Rezound.

The rumor I heard was that the 32GB will replace the 16GB but the 8GB will remain. I don't understand why they would get rid of the 16 and not the 8, but that's the RUMOR.

Agreed. I would be annoyed, but not angry.

Doubtful, but a good idea. I hope Google will compensate the early adopters with a Play Store credit.

Although not the same, this reminds me of the Motorola Droid Razr being released and then a short time later releasing the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. Just another annoyance I had seen.

Agreed.

I would think they would want to be more competitive with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 7" which starts at $199 for 16 GB. In my experiences, 8 GBs is not enough space for content even with cloud services.

My guess is the 8GB is going away and there will be the 16 & 32.

8 and 32 makes no sense, unless for price point reasons........ I guess it does make sense.

I can understand that technology advances, but I always thought a year was a good amount for new tech to be outdated. Three months before a brand new product is discontinued is a little excessive. I agree that it's not the end of the world, but it still won't make me happy.

Well, I now have 2 HD movies, and 2 books, 375 songs, and about 30 - 40 apps installed and still have 10 gigs of storage left. Maybe 16 GIGS will be on after all.

I'm surprised how easy it is to fill up 16gb. With a fair few Gameloft games (which always seem massive), caching of a few albums of photos, some audible stuff and a job load of music, I'm down to a few gb left. Ideally they'd bring out one with micro SD expansion to go alongside 8-16gb flash

Rumors. I remember when the rumor was that Apple would send out invites on October 10th for a press briefing for the new iPad mini.

First of all, I think, this link confirms the rumor of a pending 32GB Nexus: (oops, they don't allow a link in a "first post") but search on pdadb's web site for the device.

There are other websites that have the 32GB model number up on their listings of products but they leave out the details and list the item as "currently sold out."

Throw in the fact that you can't buy an 8GB Nexus 7 right now at Staples or Walmart and it leads me to believe that it's the 8GB that's going to follow the brontosaurus into the tarpit. Two-bits says the 16GB drops in price and the 32GB is brought in at about where the 16GB is priced right now. Welcome to the tablet wars with Google, Apple, and Microsoft about to get into a cat fight.

Now, for those of you that have the 16GB and are all in a tither about a pending 32GB model... welcome to the electronic world (c'mon guys, did you think the floppy disc was always going to be around? Were you upset when they brought out computers with CD slots capable of reading/burning?). I'll get all dithered up when Google brings out their spring line up with the Nexus 7 with the memory slot that'll take a 64GB card and there I'll be with my dumb ol' outdated 32GB Nexus 7.

That's hilarious! I could imagine it working okay though because of the specs on the Nexus 7. I should try that with mine and put WordPress on it so I wouldn't have to be glued to only one computer to work on my websites. Imagine scaling a whole bunch of Nexus 7's!

Funny thing guys, the 8GB just surfaced here in Belgium. Selling for a RIDICULOUS €244! Which is almost $320
I don't know if that's part of google's strategy in phasing out the 8gb... Export and overcharge?
In any case I'm happier then ever about having this shipped months ago.

I really want to get a Nexus 7 and have been looking at Craigslist for one. I am hoping they release a 32GB one soon.

Latest I heard was October 24th.

Update to this thread: just got mine delivered yesterday. I had ordered with United Mileage Plus and HAD my fingers crossed all the way that it would turn out to be the 32GB version. It was. Phew.
