After weeks of rumours and speculation, Google has finally unveiled two new variants of its Nexus 7 tablet. The Wi-Fi only 32GB Nexus 7 will be available in the Google Play store for $249 in the U.S., U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada. This version will also be available in-stores with the company's retail partners like Gamestop, Office Depot, Office Max, Staples, and Walmart in the US.
Google also launched the 32GB Nexus 7 3G version with HSPA+ connectivity, which will be sold in US, UK, Australia, France, Germany, Spain and Canada starting November 13. The unlocked model of this version will be offered at $299 starting November 13.
Further, the search giant has now made the Wi-Fi only 16GB version of the 7-inch tablet as the entry-level device and as we reported earlier, it also received a price cut.
Despite cancelling the Android event scheduled for Monday, Google made the announcement via its blogpost.
Nexus 7 brings you the best of Google-YouTube, Chrome, Gmail, Maps-and all the great content from Google Play in a slim, portable package that fits perfectly in your hand. To give you more room for all that great content you can now get Nexus 7 with 16GB ($199) or 32GB ($249) of storage. But we also wanted to make this highly portable tablet even more mobile. So we added HSPA+ mobile data. Nexus 7 is now also available with 32GB and HSPA+ mobile ($299), which can operate on more than 200 GSM providers worldwide, including AT&T and T-Mobile in the US.
