32GB Google Nexus 7 revealed by Argos
18 Oct 2012
Larger Google tablet makes an appearance in the catalogue
Remember the Argos catalogue? Before the arrival of online shopping, it was THE reference guide for pre-Christmas shopping. It's still around too, providing details of all the goodies you might want for the festive season, including the 32GB Google Nexus 7 tablet.
Yes, that's right, the 32GB Nexus 7 that isn't officially announced. Although as one accidentally shipped recently, we have been presuming that the higher capacity model was indeed on its way at some point.
Right now, if you go and shop at the Google Play site, you'll just be offered 8GB and 16GB models. Argos, however, has different ideas. As its catalogue is printed well in advance, it has accidentally managed to offer the larger model ahead of the official launch date. Obviously someone didn't get a memo about an embargo. Or Google isn't that bothered about this kind of thing. Take your pick.
That's not the only story here either. The 32GB model, if Argos' price is correct, seems to be around the same price as the current 16GB model at £199.99. That's a really strong deal.
Or perhaps it could be the case that Google will drop the prices of the previous models in the run-up to Christmas, maybe as a 'spoiler' around the launch of the rival iPad Mini. That would make more sense, offering a better spread of pricing across the range.
There has been rumour of a cheaper Nexus 7 too, but it's highly unlikely that Google will deliver a £60 tablet to its range just yet. Although we can always dream.
