Google and Asus Preparing a 32GB Nexus 7?

By Gary Cutlack on at

News coming out of places where men worry about stock levels has revealed the existence of a new Nexus 7 model, with makers Asus and Google said to be preparing a new model of their popular tablet with 32GB of onboard storage.

Google currently sells two Nexus 7 models, the cheaper version with 8GB of onboard storage space, that's only available direct from Google, plus the 16GB model that's generally seen as a way for the "bricks and mortar" shops to charge a bit more money for the tablet and make a nice profit on the deal.

The 32GB model was spotted in the sales database of retailer Carphone Warehouse, with a surreptitious photo of a stock display showing a double-the-capacity Nexus 7 with the usual Wi-Fi connectivity options. Still no sign of that rumoured 3G version, though. [Techradar]
