With Google’s The Playground is Open event only days away, we have already seen the Google Play Store “de-list” the 8GB version of the Google Nexus 7 tablet. A 32GB Nexus 7 device is in the works along with a 3G-enabled variant, which apparently has prompted some retailers in the UK to guess these devices will be announced next Monday. In response, they have started to cut the price on 16GB Nexus 7 tablets as it appears destined to become the bottom rung on the Nexus 7 ladder.
Currys has reduced the price to £189.99 ($302 USD) while retail chain Comet has cut the price down to £179.99 ($287 USD). Prior to these price cuts, the 16GB Nexus 7 was selling for £199.99 ($319 USD). Before being cut from the Google Play Store, the 8GB Nexus 7 sold for £159 ($255 USD), so the 16GB version appears headed toward that price range.
