Rumours that Google is adding a 32GB edition of the Nexus 7 to its tablet range have been confirmed by a UK retailer’s product listing.
The top-end version of the slate is up for grabs in the Christmas edition of the Argos catalogue for £199, The Next Web has discovered. That’s just 99p more than the 16GB model, which has been the top-of-the-range option since the slate debuted just over three months ago.
According to the site, which approached Argos for more concrete gen, the 32GB model has yet to be given a definite street date but will almost certainly not be here “in the next two weeks”.
News of Google’s plan to sweeten the appeal of its budget slate, which was recently confirmed as the best-selling Android tablet so far, comes as Apple is seemingly about to muscle in on its territory with a cheaper tablet of its own.
The device still being informally dubbed the iPad Mini is expected to sell from £200, feature a 7.85-inch screen that’s the best part of an inch larger than the Nexus 7 and recycle parts from earlier iPads to keep costs down.
