Today Google announced via its’ Nexus Google+ page that the Nexus 7 with 4G LTE is now available, and can be purchased in the Google Play Store for $349. This is the 32GB version, and as of this moment (that I’m writing), is in stock and shipping in 1-2 business days. Additionally, those who purchase the device (for a limited time), will receive free shipping and “Enjoy free mobile internet service with up to 2GB of 4G data for one month with no obligations.”
As many have already pointed out, the wireless connections for the Nexus 7 with 4G LTE are as follows:
- Dual-band Wi-Fi (2.4GHz/5GHz) 802.11 a/b/g/n
- LTE (700, 850, AWS, 1900 MHz)
- HSPA ( 850, 900, AWS, 1900, 2100 MHz)
- GSM/EDGE/GPRS (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
- Bluetooth 4.0
- NFC (Android Beam)
While the device will come with an unlocked T-Mobile SIM card, and be in T-Mobile stores next month, service will still be available on Verizon and AT&T networks.
So, who’s buying?
