Now this is a question that's been on my mind for ages, but never asked...UNTIL I bought my Nexus 7 (32gb)tablet. I'm getting 'app updates' (from Google play)daily - these are ALL adding to the disk space on this Nexus (which isn't much anyway) and want to know this - will there be a time, where the disk space is drastically reduced due to updates using so much?? This equally applies to Laptops only not on such a grand scale. I'm beginning to NOT update some apps. ANOTHER 'I wonder' is - when these updates come along, do they delete/cancel out previous app updates so actual memory is minimal?? Thanks in advance - 32gb ISN'T much memory to play with!!

I suppose it depends on how many apps you have. I had a 16Gb Nexus 7 and although I had plenty of apps and a couple of films I still had plenty of space. But unless you have hundred of apps then I think there is a small chance of filling the 32GB memory.
