Default Possible Nexus 8

Hi, yesterday I went to Staples to buy the Nexus 7 32gb for $169. I asked the Staples employee if the Nexus 7 discontinued? He said yes we are getting the Nexus 8. So I don't know if there is truth to that, but he answered pretty sure. And it felt like they already have some stock for the release date. Is it possible we can get a Nexus 8 instead of 7. I asked 7 or 8 he answered Nexus 8.

I found this also

I doubt this guy at staples knows what he is talking about.

Why would someone random staples employee have this information, but no one else does?

Wasn't staples the place that had the 32gb before they announced it?

I dont know. Maybe they have stock? I asked him that( so the nexus 7 is discontinued? Becuse you guys getting the newer model? And he responded yes Nexus 8) thats all. He might be stupid and just guess if its 7 then the new model is 8? I dont know.

DONATE TO ME
Just a thought but, Maybe he was confused and assumed that the new one would be called Nexus 8 because it comes after 7. I think it's safe to say with all the leaks that 7" is what is replacing it. I honestly don't think they'd do a 7" AND 8". That would be a VERY bad idea and would cause confusion and kill sales. I think it's cafe to say that Google will keep the 3 Device setup but try out a couple of others (rumors of Game console (like OUYA) and a watch have been floated).

I think Google would keep this information more private and request it not be shared with employees. Like said, it is probably the Nexus 7 Second Generation.

You should go back to the same guy and ask if he has any idea when its coming out.
