Nexus 7 199

Argos has included in their catalogue a listing for a 32GB Nexus 7 for the price of 199. This would fit with all the rumours floating about at the minute.

What's annoying is that I only bought my 16GB one a month ago!

Me too! but, I'm very happy with mine so not annoyed at all here.
After all the apps, pictures, videos & music Ive put on it, I still have around 8Gb left .

Yes, it would have been nice to have the choice, but its like any new tech, theres always a newer model a few months later.

with tech there is always something new just round the corner.

If you were waiting for the latest thing you would never buy anything.

Not really, Im just very picky as to what I put on it now.
I only put apps that I actually use, Films that I've watched I delete and put new ones on, etc,etc.

When I first got it, I filled it up with loads of (free) apps from the play store most of which I never used, so decided to clean them out and free up some space.

Stuck with that line of thinking ever since.

Welcome news for me.

I've wanted one of these for a while but decided I could justify it only by making it my Xmas present to myself.

Is it just the hard drive which is improved or is there other improvements?

Whilst true there is always something else - I think it's bad for Google to release this at the same price as the 16GB only 3 months after the original release. If it cost more then that would not be so bad but there will be a lot of people quite miffed about it coming out for the same price.

There is not much difference in cost between 16gb and 32 gb memory cards.

Although apple would like us to believe otherwise...

this is being released as a direct response to the Fire HD and the ipad mini, which are respectively, either confirmed with more storage or expected to have more storage.

Why would they hold back, or charge more, just to appease the early adopters? Particularly when the looks to be a rush for 7" tablets in the lead up to Christmas, Google HAS to be competitive to get their share.

All rumours at the moment, but expected to be mainly a storage increase. Slight possibly of including 3g or 4g but I don't think so personally. Maybe the odd tweak to the inards but its expected to largely the same.

Thought they may have more respect for the early adopters rather than saying 'here, look at what you could have had'

Unfortunately they don't. No company has ever. It's the way the economy goes

I am sure that some companies have...and it's not how the economy goes...it's how people let it go.

you talk like they conned you. They offered a 16gb tablet and you handed over your cash and got a 16gb tablet.

A new product hasn't been announced yet, let alone released.

what do you want them to do exactly? Wait until you're ready to buy a new version before releasing something more competitive?

Name one company that has compromised on winning new customers to reward current customers.

Your free to vent and be upset, maybe even pop google an email explains your emotion.

The listing specifies "32GB wifi", which none of the others do (they just list the storage size). To me that suggests very strongly that there'll be a 3G/4G version.

Anyone who thinks that tech stands still once you have made their purchase is fooling themselves.....

Junp on the tech train when you find a gadget and price that you feel is good for you - but always remember that in a very short space of time things will be better and they will be cheaper.

I have a 16gb Nexus 7 and a TF101.

The TF101 is now a few models out of date, and so, soon will the Nexus 7 be. My Galaxy Nexus phone will soon be superceded. My MK802 II will soon be bettered by a MK802 III.

Am i bitter ? No.
Are the products worse than they were when I purchased them ? No - in fact they have all had software updates that make them better.

If you want something that isnt going to be bettered very quickly then i suggest you avoid buying tech.

Oh cool. I have the 16GB one but to be honest, progress is a good thing. You know when you buy anything that six months later there will be an update

Sounds to me like a good deal.

Didn't 'con' me as I don't have one.

I was basing my opinion on the title of this post about pricing and availibility so does not matter if Google have announced or not.

What do I want? I want them to release it at a higher price than the 16GB version. Not about me personally at all - just what I think it right and wrong.

Like I said I'm sure there are some - can't say I know any off the top of my head...and as we don't really know the inner workings of companies then there may be plenty that don't replace one product with another better one at the same price after only 3 months.
