The 8GB Nexus 7 is no longer available and the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 is now back in stock in the Google Play Devices section at a new price of $249 and has been joined by its rumoured bigger brother the 32GB version which is also available for purchase now for $299. Shipping for the devices is additional and adds $19.99 to the price and devices ship within 3-5 Business days. Specifications appear to be unchanged apart from the storage and no option for a 3G version is available at this stage, you can only get Wi-Fi versions.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress and IFA.
