Nexus 7 32GB model shipped from Play Store in Japan

Last week there was tons of speculation and rumors floating around that Google and ASUS were preparing to release a 32GB Nexus 7. Then the 32GB model showed up in a few online inventory systems, and adding fuel to the fire stated an October 24th release date.

Sanwa USB Reader grants external storage, but not to everyone

Most of the Android phones on the market have some method of external storage, almost always in MicroSD card form. But a few notable phones like the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus lack this capability, as do several high-profile upcoming phones like the HTC One X. A little company called Sanwa aims to correct these oversights with the Sanwa USB Reader, a gadget that's nothing if not descriptive: it plugs into a standard MicroUSB port and adds a full-sized USB port and standard SD/MicroSD slots, plus another MicroUSB port, presumably for pass-through charging.

NOOK Tablet internal storage partitioning coming this March

Barnes and Noble has made a few changes to their popular NOOK tablet line. This morning officially announcing they'll start selling a slightly lower model with only 8GB of internal storage to better compete with the Kindle Fire. The NOOK has a micro-SD slot for expanded storage but out of the box users only get 1GB of the 8 or 16GB included to add their own pictures, music, or video. The rest is reserved for downloads from the NOOK store. Next month that will all be changing after the countless complaints regarding the matter.
