A couple of days ago we reported that the Verizon version of the Nexus 7 will be released this week, most probably by February 13. Fresh information coming from sources of the Droid-Life are saying that the device has now arrived at the storage room of Verizon stores yet can’t be released as of yet.
A photo of the 32GB Nexus 7 has been spotted complete with the Verizon logo on its packaging. The device is “Verizon 4G LTE Certified” which means that it will be able to use Verizon’s 4G LTE network. We’re still wondering why it took so long for the device to be certified by the carrier. The last time we checked it was announced last September that the certification process usually takes between 4 to 6 weeks.

Verizon took a lot of time in releasing the Nexus 7 (2013). This device which was originally released in the market in June 2013 has already been available through AT&T and the Google Play Store. The carrier has not disclosed the price yet but we’re guessing it will be close to the price at Google Play which is $349 for the 32GB version.
If you are looking for a tablet that has excellent specs and great software support then the Nexus brand is what you should be considering. Despite being first released 7 months ago the Nexus 7 (2013) is still one of the top tablet models in the market today.

What’s probably one of the minor inconvenience that you may face with this device is that its memory is not expandable. You’ll have to rely on cloud storage solutions if you plan to store large files on this device.
