My wife just called to tell me that when she went to PC World in Kingston to try for a Nexus 7 16 gb which has been on sale at £169.95 she was offered the 32GB version for £199. She is on her way home now with the latest version. I don't know if there are any other changes apart from the larger capacity.

Think I might phone up my local store and see if they have any in stock and on sale then! I was going to wait for the Nexus 10 but from the leaked pictures it doesn't look as sleek as the Nexus 7.

It seems the only change is the increased capacity!

working as intended?

People complain that a new version came out 'so soon' after the initial one, now people are complaining that its not different enough?

It's not the Nexus 7 v2, it never was. Its a little bump up to remain competitive with the Fire and ipad 2 (and because 16gb flew off the shelves and 8gb didn't)

So blooming annoying. A punch in the face to all the 'early' adopters.

And early adopters (of any product) should be accustomed to that by now.

It always pays to wait, especially when technology can change so quickly, and when a market is competitive.

I wasn't complaining, just a statement of fact seeing as I was lucky enough to get one today.! I am more than happy!

Its not even a bump. Its an addition to the existing range with the 8GB being shuffled off the bottom.

Also a 3G version added to the top of the range.

Only a foolish company would actually change spec so soon after release

Super aggressive pricing on the N4 and N7 3G. Looks like they're going on the offensive!

I can feel a nice shiny N10 32GB heading my way come Xmas bonus

Last weeks Mini prices are looking more crackers by the day.
239 gets you a 32gb N7 with 3G
269 gets you a 16gb wifi only Mini

I can see Apple reducing their prices pretty soon, they have to, surely?

Just noticed that a few local PC Worlds have the 32Gb N7s in stock......hmmm....

Early adopters always get shafted. Although 32GB would have been nice but I can quite happily live with 16GB version I have. I'm hoping they've ironed out the problems that plagued quite a few of the early versions. Myself and two other people I know have had to get early units replaced. Although glad to say the replacement units have been fine so far.

I'm happy with my 16GB one too. I'm on my 3rd Nexus 7 now after sending 2 back, but I'm not complaining at the price I paid. Google have been great in that respect, and I will happily deal with them again for the Nexus 4. Google have really thought about where they wanted to go with Nexus and they've definitely come a long long way from the Nexus One (which I had and was great), really impressed.
