Verizon Nexus 7 nearly here: coming to do tablet battle

This week a set of photos shows the Verizon 4G LTE certified version of the ASUS-made Nexus 7 from Google appearing in the flesh. This is after months of the device being in limbo after having been suggested to work with every kind of 4G LTE in the country at launch.

What we've got from Apple is the iPad Air, a new far-smaller iteration of the same Retina display as the 4th generation unit. From Google there's the Nexus 7 (2013), a low-priced high-powered Android tablet manufactured by ASUS.

Android 4.4 KitKat screens leak for Nexus 7

It's time to have a peek at Android 4.4 KitKat in its dualing near-complete edition for the masses on a Nexus 7 tablet from 2013. This version of Android is shown with a couple of clues as to its origins, the first being a glimpse of the software's single Easter Egg, one similar to each previous version of Android in its access through a hidden tap in a Settings menu deep within the device.
