The new 32 GB tablet has a cheaper price than 16 GB version

One of the most popular Android-powered tablets that hit the market in recent memory is the Google Nexus 7, which sold out at launch. The Nexus 7 originally launched in two versions featuring 8 GB and 16 GB of storage. A third version of that tablet, which has been rumored in the past, has now turned up on the Staples Advantage website.
 
The Staples Advantage website is the business-oriented page for the retail giant Staples. A listing for a 32 GB Wi-Fi version of the Nexus 7 is featured with a retail price of $248.37. Interestingly, the 16 GB version of the tablet is still listed on the website with a retail price of $251.49.

 
Android Police reports that the 32 GB version being a few dollars cheaper than the 16 GB version supports rumors that the 32 GB tablet would be replacing the 16 GB version. It would seem a price cut would be in order for the 16 GB tablet to clear stock, but there is no indication of that happening yet. The 8 GB version of the tablet is also still listed at $200.99.
 
It seems more the little strange that Google would keep an 8 GB version of the tablet and replace the 16 GB with a 32 GB. It would make more sense to reduce the price of the 16 GB tablet down to the $200 range leaving approximately a $50 price difference between the 16 GB version and the 32 GB version.  
 
Regardless of what Google chooses to do with Nexus 7 capacities from here on out, it will face some stiff competition in the “thin and light” tablet market from Apple’s upcoming iPad mini.

They certainly will not compete on price.

Yup, I think the iPad mini will take more customers from the iPad 2 and 3 than it will from Google... Then again, there are far more people buying the iPad 2,3 than any Android tablet.

I haven't played with a lot of Android tablets, and I know some of the older ones had major issues, but this Google Nexus 7 is really great. It's crazy fast. I got a 16gb one last week and am loving it.
