Nexus 7 tablet would be getting a price drop on October 29th, and that the 8GB model would be replaced with a 16GB offering it was good news. Sadly, many paid $249 for the 16GB model only to see it drop in price a few days later -- and I'm sure a few were upset. In Europe ASUS has confirmed they'll be rewarding vouchers to those who purchased before October 29th.

BlendTec fashion today we have a treat for all of you happy tablet users. The folks from Will it Blend? have released an epic video showing off the Google Nexus 7 vs Apple's iPad mini and the Kindle Fire HD. In their usual "comparison video" they show off just how well devices handle (or don't handle) getting tossed into one of their popular blenders.
Barnes & Noble recently launching their new NOOK HD and HD+ tablets at a competitive price point to fight against some other popular 7-inch tablets, they've now lowered the price on their NOOK Tablet and Color slates too. Between the Kindle Fire getting a price drop and the holidays quickly approaching the NOOK just got a bit cheaper.
the Samsung Nexus 10, LG Nexus 4, and 32GB Nexus 7 (along with a new HSPA+ model), despite the fact that it had to cancel its Android event because of Hurricane Sandy. Later on in the week, we went hands-on with the Nexus 10 and the Nexus 4, before bringing you full reviews of each device on Friday. With each running Android 4.2 out of the box and each packing a number of new features, we're going to have suggest that any Android fan at least give them a look.
Nexus 7 is popular. However, according to device builder Asus, it's even more popular than we ever thought. Asus says that sales of the seven-inch tablet are just under 1 million per month. That's a lot of people jumping on the Android tablet bandwagon each month.
Google's new line up of Nexus devices, and Android director of user services Matias Duarte has hopped on Google Plus to answer the questions Nexus fans undoubtedly have. Android users took him up on his offer to answer questions on these new Nexus devices, with hundreds posting comments to his Google Plus profile. At the time of this writing, Duarte has only gotten around to answering two questions, but the two answers he's given are definitely worth noting.
Google. The company already gave us reveals of the LG Nexus 4 and the Samsung Nexus 10, along with more Android 4.2 details than you can shake a stick at, but the big G wasn't content to just stop there. Google also revealed the long rumored 32GB Nexus 7, complete with Wi-Fi only and HSPA+ models.
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.
