New Nexus 7 with LTE coming

technologyEdward KiledjianComment

You may be wondering when an LTE enabled Google Nexus 7 (version 2) will be released and the answer is within the coming weeks (at least for US customers). 

The device will work with all 3 of the major US carriers (AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile) with a single SKU which means they have managed to cram the technology to support all of the different bands into one device. This is great for buyers of the tablet but it also means the next Google Nexus smartphone may come with LTE support (something many have criticized about the existing Nexus 4).

The WIFI only 16GB version will retail for $269 whereas the 32GB version will retail for $269.

The WIFI only Nexus version 2 is about $20 more (per model) than the existing version 1.

The 32GB LTE version is expected to retail for $349, which is a very competitive price.
