It’s been a while since Google took the wraps off its Google Nexus 7 tablet. The tablet also went on sale with LTE connectivity, but Verizon users were out of luck as it failed to work for them. Verizon did give a statement after some time about the issue, mentioning the Big Red is waiting for the tablet to get the taste of Android 4.4 KitKat. The latest Android OS arrived on the tablet last year, but there was no word about the issue for Verizon customers.
Now, it seems the tablet might hit the retail shelves very soon. Some images of the Nexus 7 retail boxes have popped up on the internet with Verizon’s logo, and clearly mentions its “Verizon 4G LTE Certified.” It also mentions that it’s the 32GB version of the tablet, so more storage is always good as Nexus tablets doesn’t come with expandable memory.
This should come as good news for those who were waiting for Verizon to launch an LTE compatible version of the tablet.
Rumors suggest the tablet will begin selling on February 13th from the Big Red, although there’s no word about the pricing. On Google Play Store, the 32GB Nexus 7 LTE sells for $349, so we can expect the price to be in a similar range.
