Good News If You Just Bought A 16GB Nexus 7, Pre-Price-Reduction

After plenty of early leaks, Google finally confirmed the new 32GB Nexus 7 option early last week. All leading up to that, we had been wondering about what effect the new model would have on continued availability and pricing of the 8GB and 16GB versions of the tablet. What we ended up see happen was that Google dropped the 8GB Nexus 7 entirely, moved the 16GB Nexus 7 to the 8GB’s previous $199 price point, and gave the 32GB the 16GB’s old $249 tag. That sounds well and good… unless you just bought a 16GB Nexus 7 at its old price. Luckily, at least some of those customers will be getting some money back, with both ASUS and Google implementing their own refund programs.

If you bought a Nexus 7 in Europe, ASUS will refund customers who purchased 16GB Nexus 7s before October 29 to the tune of €30. Unfortunately, that’s just a store voucher, rather than cash back, but it’s more than the company had to do. Customers in the UK will get a ₤25 coupon, instead.

For those of you in the US, if you ordered your 16GB Nexus 7 from Google after October 14, but before the price drop, the company will credit you for the $50 difference.
