We are expecting to see an updated Nexus 7 in July, and we have been assuming the prices will remain the same or go down. A report from DigiTimes is telling us otherwise. They are reporting it will come in at $229, and they didn’t suggest that there will be two storage options like now. All they said was that it would be 16GB. We can’t imagine that Google would increase the price, considering it’s one of the most popular Android tablets. We also think they will continue to offer two versions, 16GB and 32GB.
So our theory is that the $229 price tag will be for the 32GB version and we will see the 16GB version for $179. Either way, we just don’t see Google increasing the price. What do you guys think?
