It won’t be long before Google phases out its 16GB Nexus 7 in favor of a model with double the storage. According to a reseller’s inventory, the device has achieved end-of-life status, with the 32GB model set to carry on the outgoing device’s legacy for the same $250 price.
We’ve already seen hints that a 32GB model was near, and one even mistakenly showed up in the wild. If the 16GB Nexus 7 is indeed thrown by the wayside, perhaps there’s a possibility Google will offer its 8GB version for cheaper — maybe $150? That would be an insanely killer price during the holidays.
If you plan on picking a Nexus 7 up, do yourself a favor and hold off for a few weeks so you’re not stuck with the soon-to-be phased out 16GB model.
