We received a tip from reader Paul Coussa this morning that a 32 GB Nexus 7 has appeared in a US eBay auction. The seller says he received it from the United Mileage Rewards program (presumably he ordered a 16 GB device).
The current price at time of writing is $250 (the same price as the 16 GB model in the US Google Play store). It’s worth noting that the seller doesn’t have much feedback, if you’re considering bidding.
When put together with good deals on the 16 GB model from Officeworks and Kogan, this would seem to imply that something is “up” in the supply chain. Perhaps we’ll see an official launch of the 32 GB Nexus 7 at Google’s October 29 “Playground” event.
So far our query regarding a local release has gone unanswered from Asus. We’ll continue watching.
Are you interested in the 32 GB Nexus 7? Does a new 32 GB model change how you feel about your existing device? Let us know in the comments!
