The latest iteration of the Nexus 7 tablet went up for sale in July, and a couple weeks later we saw hints that the LTE version of the tablet would be arriving soon. Now the availability of the Nexus 7 with 4G LTE from the Google Play Store has been announced, as well as its upcoming availability in T-Mobile stores.
The announcement was made over on the Nexus Google+ page, where it was also said the LTE version of the tablet will be arriving in T-Mobile stores in October, though no specified date was provided. The tablet is being sold unlocked alongside a T-Mobile SIM card, as well, so the slate can be used on the carrier’s 4G mobile broadband network.
The slate is up in the Google Play Store for $349 USD for the 32GB model, with the Nexus 7 being shown as in stock and shipping within a couple of days. And as always, the two non-LTE versions are available as well, with the 16GB variety being offered at $229 USD and the 32GB version at $269 USD — both have dual-band WiFi.
The Nexus 7 2013 model features a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 HD IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass. Under the hood, the tablet runs on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz processor and 2GB of RAM. Around back, the slate is equipped with a 5MP camera with auto focus, while the front has a fixed-focus 1.2MP camera. Software is Android 4.3.
