An American online retailer has listed a 32GB Nexus 7 on its site, adding further fuel to the rumours that Google is planning a big-storage version of its popular tablet.
Rumours of a beefed-up Google tablet have been doing the rounds for some time now, with the device expected to launch this month.
The Asus-manufactured low-cost tablet has been going down a storm on both sides of the Atlantic, with the 16GB version proving the more popular choice. So an even bigger version would make sense.
32GB Nexus 7 UK launch date
Google wasted no time in getting its first tablet to market, collaborating with Asus to turn it from an idea into a product in just four months.
And seems it’s continuing that fast-paced manufacturing ethos by launching the 32GB Nexus 7 this week.
Reports have cited sources close to retailer Argos, who claim that the Nexus 7 will replace the 16GB version this week – priced at £199.99.
The US online retailer also seems to think the device will launch this week, giving a provisional release date of 18 October.
Google Nexus 7 success
The Nexus 7 is certainly a great device, but we doubt even Google thought it would be as successful as it has been.
In the three months that it has been on sale in the UK, it has already become the biggest-selling Android tablet of all time.
According to retailer Carphone Warehouse, the device has beaten the likes of the Asus Transformer Prime and Samsung Galaxy Tab to the top spot.
Graham Stapleton, chief commercial officer at Carphone Warehouse, hopes to see other manufacturers bring out wallet-friendly tablets as a result of Google’s success. He said:
“It’s impressive that this product is our biggest selling Android tablet, and it will be really interesting to see if other manufacturers will follow suit with smaller tablets over the coming months to spice up the Christmas period.”
