Right now you can buy Google’s first tablet with 8 or 16 GB of included storage space. However, one hardware reseller is indicating that the 16 GB model is about to be phased out (EOL stands for End-Of-Life in the image below).
And it’s apparently set to be replaced by the elusive 32 GB unit. Since ‘replace’ is the operative word here, we’re going to assume that this means no price hike will occur. Or at least we can hope so.
If that happens, a 32 GB Nexus 7 for the price of a 16 GB Nexus 7, then we can also probably count on a lower-cost $99 version of this tablet being in the works (as rumored earlier today). That could end up being the 8 GB model that’s already on sale, but with a massive 50% price drop, or it could be something else entirely. Let’s wait and see.
One way or the other though, a 32 GB Nexus 7 is definitely coming.
