Not the Main Story

A Nexus 7 with 32 GB of onboard storage was apparently delivered to a customer in Japan. Neat. Here’s what interests me:

Interestingly enough, the surprise delivery comes at a time when Google is rumored to launch a new, more spacious 32GB model as soon as October 24th — though only time will tell if that’s actually going to be the case.

Why does that date sound familiar? Oh yeah:

I think [a smaller iPad is] scheduled to be announced at an event on October 17, with preorders starting on October 19, and shipping starting on October 26. “Why those dates?”, you ask. Apple’s quarterly financial call is scheduled for October 25, and they often like to follow those calls with product launches.
