Last month we heard rumblings of a 3G Nexus 7 as it was originally rumored to launch about now. A good indication on any device is commission filings like the FCC here in the U.S. Well there is a similar organization called the National Communications Commission (NCC) in Taiwan and it looks like a Nexus 7 with UMTS / HSDPA was just certified. I noticed some sites thought this was a retailer listing and could be fake, but no, this is a government listing.
The model number is ME370TG and is made by ASUS. It’s not referred to as a Nexus 7, but since the original Nexus 7 was ME370T, it’s safe to assume this is a Nexus 7 variant. The listing does reveal that it will have 32GB and will support GSM, WCDMA, as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. German’s Tabletblog is speculating that it could be priced at 299 Euros, which translates to $399. Again, this is an opinion, but doesn’t seem all that far fetched. I would expect to see this baby announced at the October 29 event in New York City.
