Google Nexus 7 32GB model

Argos has revealed that Google will launch a 32GB model of its Nexus 7 tablet.

The UK retailer has published its Christmas gift guide which features the 32GB model of the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Nexus 7. Posted on TeckComesFirst, the image shows the larger capacity version will go on sale for £199.

This price is the same as the existing 16GB model, hinting that the 32GB will replace it. The only reason we've heard as to why an upgraded model will cost the same is that the tablet does not come with the £15 worth of Google Play Store credit which was previously offered.

Argos does not have the tablet on its website yet, but it seems this will happen between now and Christmas. Google has not announced the 32GB Nexus 7 made by Asus and it remains to be seen whether it will offer any kind of compensation for customers of the 16GB model.

In the meantime Apple's  iPad Mini launch is fast approaching. The iPhone maker sent out invitations for the event on 23 October with the tag line 'We've got a little more to show you'.
