We wouldn't be having this conversation if it wasn't coming up to a year since the launch of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. In this day and age, why that's almost eons since the release of the last Nexus phone. The latest word we've heard around the water cooler is that the next Nexus device will be coming from LG. That would seem to negate the thought that what we see on the screen is for a new phone.
The other item on the screen is a 32GB model of the Asus built Google Nexus 7. The low priced tablet is currently available in both 8GB and 16GB models and without a microSD slot on the tablet to increase storage, it makes sense for a 32GB tablet to be offered. Those with the 8GB model only get 5.5GB to play around with after the system eats up 2.5GB.
