Android, so it's time to bust out those devices and get to saving the world.
Swerdroid featuring a hands on with the LG Nexus 4. The video confirms pretty much everything we already knew about the phone, but it is still nice to see it in motion.
pricing confirmation from Office Depot that the 32GB version of the Nexus 7 would go for $249. Well, Walmart has jumped on the bandwagon, listing the 32GB version as "in stock" on its website. They have also dropped the price of the 16Gb version to $199. While Google has not officially announced the 32GB version or the price drop to $199 for the 16GB, Walmart has both ready to ship. We thought Office Depot may have jumped the gun on selling the new version of the Nexus 7, but this Walmart listing seems to confirm that the tablet is, in fact, ready for primetime. It seems that even though Google was forced to cancel the event where it was presumed that they would make the tablet official, retailers seem to be given the go ahead to sell the tablet. Presumably, other retailers will follow along with Walmart and Office Depot soon. Google has actually listed the 8GB and 16GB versions as out of stock. Google Play simply has a form for users to check and see when the tablet will be available again. With retailers listing the tablets for sale, we assume Google will start selling them on Google Play soon as well. Besides the 32GB Nexus 7, Google was also rumored to announce the Nexus 10, and the Nexus 4 from LG. Google has not announced when the event is rescheduled for, but we assume it will be after the hurricane dies down. We will keep you posted on all things Nexus 7 and Google's upcoming Android event.

Office Depot was selling the 32GB version of the Nexus 7 tablet. Now, it appears as though Google has stopped selling the original 8 and 16GB versions of the tablet on Google Play. Perhaps Google is getting ready to list the new versions of the tablet on Google Play. Of course, it's also possible that they just ran out of tablets, but it seems unlikely that Google would run out of both models at the same time.
