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.
