The reseller is not shipping out the device yet, but they do plan to ship by October 24th. Apple has an event scheduled for October 10th were it is expected they will announce the Ipad Mini which is set out to kill the Kindle Fire HD. Could the 32GB Nexus 7 be the paradoxical device that makes the Ipad Mini irrelevant prior to release? The price tag could be $300. Would you be willing to pay an extra $100 for quadruple the storage? This device is not official so you should take all this with a grain of salt.
