The 32GB Google Nexus 7 accidentally given to a customer

Imagine paying for the 16GB model of the Asus built Google Nexus 7 and finding out that you actually received the 32GB capacity tablet by mistake. This actually happened to a lucky consumer in Japan who might very well be the only person in the world who has purchased the 32 GB variant of the Android 4.1 powered unit. It actually works out to 27.5GB of storage for the lucky buyer.

While Google has yet to confirm or deny that a 32GB model of the Google Nexus 7 is coming, the accidental sale of the 32GB tablet confirms earlier screenshot leaks showing such a device in Carphone Warehouse's inventory system and on the web site of other retailers. This will be the first holiday season that thew Google Nexus 7 will go head to head against the sequel of the tablet that started the low-priced 7 inch category, the Amazon Kindle Fire 2, and it's higher-end Amazon Kindle Fire HD. Considering that there is no microSD slot for expanding memory on the Google Nexus 7, the 32GB model would certainly see a good share of buyers come its way.

The 8GB model of the Google Nexus 7 is priced at $199 while the 16GB version is tagged at $249.00. The 32GB model could come in at or slightly below $300.

OMG, that is awesome.... Lucky fool....doesn't know what to do with the 27.5 gigs of precious storage.. If that was me, it'd be nothing but movies, games, and even more important my favorite graphic novels of Hit Man Reborn loaded on to it.

One reason I love Motorola high end handsets, HDMI mirror capability. Everyone else needs to get with the program. That is one lucky customer, I would have loved to get that for my girlfriend for Christmas, she needs a tablet and after dealing with her Galaxy S3 and it's issues with USB mass storage and Windows. I prefer a Vanilla experience to those annoying UI that change more than they should with Android.

Oh I have it with my HTC sensation via MHL, but need it also in a tablet.

I'll probably just buy a $50 android stick to power the tv.

Seriously, If google learned how to add a little hole on their devices for microSD slot, like in Nexus7, they can keep the price to $200 and still receive consistent profit from customers like me...i would definitely buy one without a second thought
