    If rumors from DigiTimes are correct, Google has no plans to chase the ultra-cheap pricing model to the bottom of the toilet with their next Nexus 7. According to their sources, Google is planning to stick with similar pricing for their next generation of the Nexus 7 tablet and may even increase it slightly to $229.99. Google wants to make sure they lock up the mid-range segment and avoid competing in the entry-level arean. Here's a quote with the details,

    What do you guys think? With the rumored higher end specs of the next generation Nexus 7, will it still be a bargain at $230?

    A 7" 16GB tablet without a sdcard slot, a bargain at $230? NO!!!!!!!!!! would be a bargain at $95

    I'm currently in the entry-level segment of the marketplace with my US$159. Acer and the only thing that would motivate me to move into a higher-level segment of that marketplace would be high resolution display specs. But, I certainly don't think the move up should force me to give up my HDMI and SD ports. Hopefully, the so-called 'higher end specs' of the next generation Nexus 7 will address those shortcomings, so that the US$230. pricepoint is based on added value and not inflated ego.

    I was waiting for a new Nexus 7, until I came across this Hisense Zero 7 pro. The Nexus will have
    to be pretty outstanding for me to switch.

    The pricing looks fine, if the specs are improved, HD screen, 2gb ram and retaining a 32gb of storage. My experience has shown me that for my use, SD is not critical if I have 32gb of internal storage.

    That said, given my "aging eyes," the 10in Sony Z tablet is looking pretty good, though, I do prefer Nexus class devices.

    What you described is the $350 version.
    This article is about the $230 version which wont have any of what you mentioned, and it will be 16 not 32.

    With how cheap flash memory is these days, I find it ludicrous the difference in price point difference manufacturers set on double the space these days. There can't really be that much of a price difference for 32GB vs 16GB. Why not have a $250 model with 32GB standard and a $350 model with improved hardware?!

    If Google continues with their sticking to the customer plan, they will release 4 versions of the same tablet.
    Each version slightly different, $275 version same as $230 version but 2gb ram, $315 version add 32gb space. $350 the works.
    Basically same as $150 China tablet release 1 month later.
