8GB and 16GB Google Nexus 7 models are out of stock at the Play store
The reason for all this is, of course, anything but a mystery: a new, 32GB Google Nexus 7 model is expected to land soon. Moreover, it will be priced at $250, or exactly as much as the 16GB variant retailed for until recently. Once the device is back on the Play store, the 16GB model will occupy the 8-gigger's $200 price spot. But what will happen to the 8GB Google Nexus 7 tablet then? Well, we aren't sure, to be honest. Some say it will be discontinued, but on the other hand, it might also be treated to a price reduction.
The 32GB Google Nexus 7 tablet was expected to be announced publicly tonight, along with a 10-inch model made by Samsung, but the event has been cancelled due to the severe weather conditions across the U.S. East coast. In case if a 16-gigger will satisfy your needs, you might be able to find one at a retailer's outlet for $200.

Probably sell whatever is left since they only made a certain amount, the 16GB takes the 8GB spot and the 32GB takes the 16GB spot and the 10 incher comes in for a landing bringing some serious power and high end specs preferably at $400.
I always thought that the 8GB was a total waste of time, it's just too little considering how often we save things on internal memory, anyone would eat up 8GB with ease, 16GB is a better starting point. Looks like the Nexus keeps getting better as a deal and by now the manufacturing bugs have been ironed out, it's a great time to get your hands on one. The lady has been looking at the galaxy Tab but I told her it's better to wait around for the Nexus 7 and it's bargain prices and deliciously sweet Vanilla android experience. I just didn't want to spring for the 8GB for reasons I said above, but now it's a better situation.

My guess is that the 8GB will be reduced to the $99.99 price point we've been hearing about.
