It is hard to evaluate these kind of things but the reasoning in the blog entry is for me much more logical than your reasoning.
For your listening pleasure

You bet! I'll take 16 extra bananas over 8 any day.

Whether you agree with it or not, his reasoning seems pretty clear.


That's kind of what I was thinking. Is there something I'm missing?

So there is no increased volume for larger sizes, why should flash memory get cheaper?
It is. I just got a 512GB SSD and it comes at 78c/GB. You couldn't dream of these prices not long ago.

Totally unclear since 116G to 132G was not a big jump.

I am sure there are those who will USE it, but I question how many of those people couldn't get the same function out of a smartphone, or an ipod touch. So many tablet users seem to get so little use out of what is a laptop-sized purchase.

Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, I still feel that any tablet under 10 inches is not a good investment, just my personal opinion.

Considering they've sold more 16s than 8s, they better replace it with something better

Well, you COULD dream of those prices. But, if you ever told anyone, you'd be committed to Shady Acres.

There is also the fact that only Google sold the 8GB model, and when you factor in shipping costs and the waiting time, most folks simply went for the 16GB you could buy at brick&mortar stores.

Not true. I bought an 8G version at an Office Depot in Chicago.

Wrong. Google sold both online and in stores. For a while the 16gb version wasn't available online because it was sold out. I have seen both in b&m stores.

Well, not in Canada as far as I know. Stores only carried the 16GB model.

A bunch of stores only really stocked the 16 gig, because that was what most people want. Didn't mean it wasn't available for the stores to carry.

Some more info regarding this $99 Nexus.

Quote:
The company is currently working with Taiwan-based Quanta Computer to produce a $99 Nexus tablet boasting a single-core processor that will launch by the end of this year, Digitimes is reporting today, citing sources. According to the blog's sources, the tablet isn't being developed in partnership with Asus, the company that helped Google build its Nexus 7. The cheaper tablet is, at least right now, separate from the Nexus 7 lineup.
Source

Does sound very compelling to me, more like a kid's tablet. A single core won't get you very far nowadays.
