32GB version takes over the $249 spot

If you're in the market for a new Google Nexus 7 tablet, the rumored price cuts have been confirmed. Google has dropped the price of the 16GB version of the tablet to $199.

The 16GB version of the tablet was originally priced at $249, but the new 32GB version is now occupying that price point. It's unclear what will happen to the 8GB version of the tablet, but speculation suggests that it could see its price decreased to a low $99. However, even if Google were to be that generous, it would likely just maintain that price point until inventories of the 8GB model are cleared.

The official announcement for the new pricing of the Nexus 7 tablet was to have come today, but Google was forced to cancel its press event due to Hurricane Sandy. There have been other indications that there may be a 3G version of the tablet launching soon as well.
So far, Google hasn't offered a new time for its official event.

"According to Android head Andy Rubin they were actually losing money on the Nexus 7 at the old price points. Now that they have lowered the prices even further"

Why would their profits matter to you as a consumer? This is good for a consumer. It means better products at lower prices. As a Nexus 7 owner, I can tell you its well worth it. Fast as hell, great screen, great price. It does everything I need it to do - note I am not a huge tablet power user. Like most people, I just use it for internet and e-reader. I remote into my servers as well, but any tablet can do that.
