Following rumors, 32GB Nexus 7 accidentally shipped to customer in Japan

Following rumors that a 32GB version of the Nexus 7 may launch Oct. 24, the 32GB Nexus 7 and its upgraded storage glory have appeared in a photo from Japan. Twitter user @oppese said he was accidentally sent a 32GB Nexus 7 instead of a 16GB version that he ordered. This is the first time we have seen a working version. Interestingly, it was sent in a package labeled as 16GB.

Additionally, the 32GB version has also appeared in another store inventory in the United Kingdom this afternoon. Twitter user @Rage06 posted a photo of the 32GB Nexus 7 listed in the inventory of Currys/PCWorld.

It is not clear if Google will sell the upgraded version on its Play Store or just allow approved resellers to sell the device. At any rate, anyone looking for a bit more storage in his or her pure-Jelly Bean tablet may have it soon. [The Digital Reader via Gotta Be Mobile]
