Post Bigger on the inside: Nexus 7 with more storage may arrive soon

Some changes under the hood may be coming.


We may soon see a Google Nexus 7 that will compete with its tablet rivals on the storage front, according to an alleged screenshot of Carphone Warehouse's stock system posted at Droid-Life. Storage is one of the points where the Nexus 7 fails to match up to the recently released Kindle Fire HD, but it would step beyond the Nook HD's bracket with a storage bump to 16GB/32GB options.

The Nexus 7 launched with 8GB of storage in the base $199 model, upgradeable to 16GB for another $50. The Kindle Fire HD comes in 16GB and 32GB variations for $199 and $249 respectively, while the Nook HD will have 8GB for $199 and 16GB for $229. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos made a special point about the Kindle Fire HD's storage when he announced the device, stating that high-resolution content demands more space than the paltry 6GB available on the original Kindle Fire.

The Nexus 7 has the same screen resolution as the Kindle Fire HD (1280?800) so it stands to reason that it needs the same amount of storage. The Nook HD, which is set to arrive in November, beats both models at this stat with its 1440?900 display.
