Nexus 7 32GB In-Store For $249/16GB Drops To $199
« on: October 29, 2012, 09:09:50 AM »

Well we knew it was going to happen.  As many of you know, Google's special 'The Playground Is Open' event that was supposed to take place today has been rescheduled due to Hurricane Sally hitting the northeast.  Among the expected announcements at the event are the new 32GB Nexus 7, a possible 3G Nexus 7 and the intro of the Nexus 4 phone and Nexus 10 tablet.  Well it seems that despite the event being cancelled, retailers were already prepped with the 32GB Nexus 7 and the requisite price drops so you can now purchase the 32GB N7 for $249...the same price that the 16GB used to sell at.   The 16GB is now only $199....quite a deal.   

On the Google Play website interestingly both the 8GB and 16GB are not available and listed as 'coming soon'.  We're assuming this means the company is revamping its offerings and it'll be interesting to see if the 8GB remains available at all...perhaps at a reduced price ($99 or $149 anyone?).   It will also be interesting to see if the 3G version is available.   Both Office Depot and GameStop are advertising the 32GB and 16GB Nexus 7s at their new prices and most have them in stock as well.   Let us know if you pick up one of the new 32GB models in the comments below.

I just purchased a nexus 7 yesterday at target, 16 gig for 249.  They would not answer if they had the 32 yet.  I bought knowing I would return, just wanted to see how it works.  will return and get the Ipad mini next week and see how it works.  Now, if they offer some 8gig for 99, would be hard to pass up..

Trying to decide if the extra money is worth it for the 32 gig.  Now, if one is not watching movies, is there any other reason to get the larger memory?

Not really I think 16 is enough for games and music.

I would pay 49 dollars for double the space on pretty much any computer, tablet, music player etc. Without a doubt on a device that doesn't have a slot for extra sdram. I think it is a nobrainer.
 Music, pictures, games. Apps. Books. The ease of mind of not jamming your device to the gills is a reason enough for me. I have over 50 gig of music, 20 gigs of Karaoke, games can run close to 2 gigs on their own. I don't like juggling.

Would you pay ANOTHER $49 for 3G and WI FI included? Enter the Nexus 7 32GB NSPA+ $299

Tell me life isn't sweet..

ceh, old dirty and fast!

But wifi is already included in the base unit so what does your comment about adding 3g and wifi mean?

I am a newbie so bear with me while  I try to answer!! ;D

Yes, it has wi-fi built in but I am talking about PROVIDER SERVICE.

You have to have service from somewhere to connect your wi-fi!!!

Well, from what I understand, the NSPA+ model comes with SERVICE. That means I can always be connected whereever att phones are connected.

In addition, are the previous models 3G? 

Being a newbie, I don't know. But, I do know that they mention it on the NSPA+ model..  8)


In addition, this model isn't out yet, it will come out on November 13th. Also, this model will sell for $299,  instead of $249 like the REGULAR Nexus 7 32gb. I have the regular one, and was getting ready to get provider service for my wife so she can always be connected. With the new NSPA+ it has it on service provider.

I just picked this one up today.. $249. But, it will be going back in 13 days, and picked up the USPA+ model. I may have to wait a day or two. But, I will have service built in.

Could you come back and tell me if the newbie (me)is right or wrong??? ;D

To further prove my point, here is a link to explain! 8)

The service or the ability to pay for service is what you are saying.. It's not free after you pay for the hardware. SO No. I wouldn't pay another for 50 dollars to have to pay for DATA EVERY MONTH. That is what my unlimited cell plan is for.

My suggestion is to check with cellular service providers in your area and see if they support HSPA and if they do, you can explore the plans that they offer.

All 3 versions of the Nexus 7 all have the same free Wi-fi.  So whether at your home, star bucks, airport, etc, it is free.

The HPSA+ phone allows one to put a SIM into the tablet to use cell service for data, but this is NOT free!!

So is it worth spending another 50 bucks and then having to spend around another 30 bucks per month for the data?  If I am on the road,
I would just find a free star bucks to drive to and use the wi fi.

I am still trying to decide if the 50 bucks is worth it to go from 16 to 32 gig when I play no have no video on the unit and nothing else I can think of takes that much space.
(Or am I missing something?)

Wow, I am learning big time with my first 2 or 3 post. Thanks much for the big CORRECTIONS fellas.. Much appreciated. I was thinking the NSPA+ was allowing the N7 to connect to att service anywhere it is provided. Wi-fi is nothing but a wireless adapter you need access to wireless service. Again, I was thinking this was wireless service for the extra $50. I am not interested in phone service. In fact, I hate phones!!  :D

Thanks again to all for the correction!
ceh, old dirty and fast!
