Google Announces Refreshed Nexus 7, 32 GB and 3G in Tow

The Nexus news keeps on coming, this time regarding the Nexus 7. As you may have read elsewhere, a few lucky Nexus 7 buyers of the 16 GB flavor were surprised to receive 32 GB models. Now they’re official.

The 16 GB Nexus 7 has replaced the 8 GB model at the $199 price point, while a new 32 GB model moves in to take the $249 spot.

For those of you who like to take your little tablets with you on the road, Google has also introduced a 3G-equipped model. For $299, you’ll receive a 32 GB Nexus 7 with HSPA+ capabilities. Like the Nexus 4, the mobile-ready Nexus 7 is a pentaband GSM device, meaning it’ll work on both T-Mobile and AT&T here in the States as well as hundreds of other carriers worldwide.

I pre-ordered the 16 GB Nexus 7 for $249 back in June during Google I/O, as did many others. While I haven’t yet found the need for more storage space, perhaps if I find extra cash floating around I’ll upgrade to the 3G-capable model and gift my three-month-old Nexus 7 to someone else. I predict there will be a few comments of outrage over the price drops and updated models coming so soon, but for $249 I personally couldn’t be more satisfied.

When can you get the new model? It’ll be on Google Play starting on November 13th.
