    If the rumor is true that the new 32GB Nexus 7 is priced the same as the 16GB model, what do you think they will do about us? Will they give us a free upgrade or something? More realistically, a gift card?

    they wouldn't do anything? I mean, newer products usually aren't released just a few months after the original--doesn't make sense from the business perspective (wait until current owners feel an upgrade is justified). its release date probably won't be for at least a couple more months, so at that point it's not like google really owes us anything.

    If anything, I can see it priced at $299. Otherwise their whole pricing system will be messed up ($199 for 8GB, $219 for 16GB, $249 for 32GB? doesn't provide much incentive to purchase just the 8GB)

    Nintendo did this with the Nintendo 3DS. They gave us a load of free games.

    I can see the 8gb going away, then the 16gb being $199 and the 32gb being $250.

    Damn auto correct. You always end up posting some thong you didn't Nintendo.

    sometimes you have to get over it. I understand its hard but google is trying to cope up with 8 gb low storage Nexus Complaints.

    They did give us something, the 25 dollar credit to the play store. I wish they would have given us an OTG cable (that works) also.

    Agreed. We won't get anything. Obsolescence is part of technology.

    So, in your way of thinking, if they drop the price of the 16gb to $199......then Google should give everyone who bought an 8gb something also!!! 3/5 million gift cards......not in this lifetime!!!!

    This seems like the best answer. Early adopters already got their free gift.

    16GB users would just... Have to bite the bullet. Just the way things work. Hate to sound like that cliche guy, but I have my device and have been enjoying it for the past few months. I don't think that's going to change if a 32gb device comes out soon. Not to mention, this is the risk you take when you're an "early adopter"

    yeahh there's no way they'd sell the device for under $199, so either the 8GB bites the dust, the 32 GB is more $$, or they reconfigure their pricing system so the 16GB is an awkward, in-between price of $199 and $250--in which case, I guarantee no one would buy the 8GB if they can get double the capacity for like $20 more.

    I think the 32GB is going to be priced higher than $250.. but if it isn't and 8GB's are toast, I'd be more pissed as an 8GB user than as a 16GB user lol.

    Especially those who ordered from the Play store and got hit with shipping and sales tax, running the total close to $240 for the 8GB model.

    Yeah, I have to admit that buying from Google Play with the huge shipping fee and taxes sucked!

    My 16GB came out to exactly $286.33. Nearly $300... just for the unit alone. GTFO, Google. :rolleyes:

    agreed on already getting a free $25 to the play store, which was good enough for me. same goes for 16g, i'll never use it all so could care less about the 32g, but for what its worth, I think the 8gig is gone and the 16g will be $199 and the 32gig $249.

    I would suggest Google price it like this:

    $149 = 8GB
    $199 = 16GB
    $249 = 32GB

    OR

    $199 = 8GB
    $249 = 16GB
    $299 = 32GB

    The first option would be best to drive sales and match the Kindle HD during the hot Xmas season coming up. Also to nicely price it to compete with a most likely overpriced iPad Mini. It would make the Nexus 7 that much more appealing.

    lol they'd hemorrhage money. It doesn't cost them much for the extra 8gb between the 8gb and 16gb model. Not a chance on earth they'd sell the device for $50 less because of a few gigs' difference, unless they're crazy.

    Drop the 8 GB and go $229 and $269 and bring back the $25 app credit.

    I wonder if I can get a $350 credit from Sony since the PS3 is only $250 now. I bought mine when it was $600 at launch.

    I mean come on.

    Man some people are ridiculous.

    Many of us got 25 dollars back in Google Play purchasing power as a courtesy for being an early adopter of the tablet.
    You also got 10 dollars loaded up with Google Wallet to use anywhere there's a PayPass machine.

    That's 35 dollars back on your purchase that Google gave you as a gift, to say thank you for using our products. They didn't need to do that, but they did.

    And now some of you feel that Google owes you MORE, because they have plans to release a 32 GB version that is rumored to be the same price?

    Insane.
