We have some excellent news regarding Google’s Nexus 7 tablet this afternoon. After over a month of waiting and wondering about the 4G LTE version of their new tablet, we can now confirm the 32GB 4G LTE new Nexus 7 is available today, right this moment. Google just dropped the news on their +Nexus channel.
When Google announced the new Nexus 7, they confirmed a 4G LTE model that will work with Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile was coming soon for $349. We’ve seen reports and rumors about a middle of September release for other regions, but Google never said a word about the US. Well, that day is finally here.
Right this moment you can head to the Google Play Store and grab their 7-inch full HD quad-core tablet running the latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. That will come with 32GB of storage, and be fully unlocked for most LTE carriers. The device comes with a T-Mobile SIM, but is unlocked and will work with both T-Mobile and AT&T 3G networks, as well as 4G LTE for both of those, not to mention US Cellular and Verizon Wireless.
The way we understand it, the tablet will roll back onto 3G or HSPA+ GSM networks when LTE is not available, but those won’t be an option for Verizon users due to it not supports CDMA. Which shouldn’t be an issue considering Verizon 4G LTE is basically everywhere these days. Get it now for $349 and start truly enjoying the new Nexus 7 everywhere!
