Google Nexus 7 Release Date for 32GB Model to Be October 24?

The Google Nexus 7 release date for the 32GB model could be as early as Oct. 24, according to new reports.

The device was recently discovered in a listing at a Carphone Warehouse store in the U.K. Shortly after it was found, a few Droid Life readers reported that they found the tablet in the retailer's purchasing system.

The device was priced at $259.92 and the reader also reported that his reseller is expecting shipments of the 32GB Nexus 7 sometime around Oct. 24 and called it a "special model."

Google could be releasing this version in order to better compete with the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the next-generation Nook tablet.

A Galaxy Nexus 2 smartphone was also discovered in Carphone Warehouse's inventory with this new Nexus 7 model.

Neither of these devices has been confirmed by Google, so this leak should be taken with a grain of salt.

However, Samsung is expected to unveil a new, smaller smartphone in the current weeks, as the Korean electronics giant sent out an invite for a media event set to take place in Berlin, Germany.

Samsung and Google teamed up around the same time last year to unveil the original Galaxy Nexus smartphone, so a new model is overdue.

Various tech sites are predicting that Samsung is going to unveil a smaller version of the Galaxy S3 in order to better compete with the new iPhone 5. But that still has not been confirmed.

If the Galaxy Nexus 2 rumors end up being true, the device will most likely debut running the latest build of Android and feature top notch specs, including a quad-core processor and HD display.
