Nexus 7 With LTE Is $299 at Best Buy

nexus-7-lte-best-buy-deal

If you’ve been wanting a Nexus 7 with LTE, Best Buy has a great deal for you today. Normally $350, the 32 GB Nexus 7 is only $299.99 today, a $50 savings. This is the same model you get everywhere else, so it works on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

Verizon sells the Nexus 7 for the normal price of $349 or $49 on-contract. If you don’t want a contract with them, you should definitely take advantage of this deal. Of course, T-Mobile will still give you their 200 MB of data for free and AT&T’s plans apply as well.

Nexus 7 LTE Coming Soon to Best Buy

Nexus 7 Verizon

You may already be able to get the LTE variant of the Nexus 7 from Google Play, but what if you don’t want to pay for shipping? Looks like you’ll soon be able to pick one up from Best Buy, if their site is to be believed. There is no specific release date yet, but it does say, “Coming Soon” on their website.

You’ll be able to use it, of course, on AT&T and T-Mobile (and Verizon whenever they actually “approve” the device). So will you wait for Best Buy to get these in stock or have you already ordered one from Google Play?

LTE Nexus 7 goes on sale in Germany and Italy

LTE Nexus 7 (2013)

The 2013 Nexus 7 with LTE has been playing hide and seek with us ever since the Google announcement last month. While the variant isn’t officially available anywhere, one lucky user in China was able to get one, thanks to an error by ASUS. And now the 4G LTE variant of the 2013 Nexus 7 seems to have gone up for sale in Germany and Italy. One user from Hannover, Germany apparently picked up his pre-order unit from a MediaMarkt outlet. Its online store currently lists the tablet for €349.

In Italy, ASUS Store and Redcoon are believed to be selling the new variant. Price is still the same, which means that an official launch isn’t far away. However, it’s a little surprising that European markets are getting it first instead of the U.S. which is traditionally the first to get any Nexus device.

The tablet apparently has the Wi-Fi Hotspot feature built in by default, which was missing from the 2012 HSPA+ Nexus 7. If you belong to Germany or Italy and have been waiting for the LTE Nexus 7, head over to the links below to make your purchase.

First-Gen Nexus 7 To Get LTE-Enabled Rehash at Google I/O?

Rumors concerning Google’s possible hardware launches during this week’s I/O conference may be a dime a dozen these days, but we can still start talking about certainties. For instance, we’re pretty sure the Nexus 7, the hugely successful 7-inch tablet that was debuted during last year’s I/O, will be getting at least one follow-up by the end of the week.

And chances are the second-gen N7 will look pretty awesome, with a WUXGA display, Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and below $200 price point. But what about the first-gen tab? Will that just be left to dust and forgotten completely in a matter of months?

Nexus 7-LTE-benchmark

Probably yes, but maybe not. Because apparently there could be a rehash planned too, with basically the same old specs, plus 4G LTE connectivity. There are a lot of “maybes”, “probablys” and “apparentlys” there, so you can imagine there’s no solid proof behind the existence of a Nexus 7 LTE.

But a tab dubbed exactly that has been spotted in AnTuTu’s database. Plus, wouldn’t it kind of make sense for Google to keep milking the cash cow this slate has proven to be for a little longer? Not to mention I’m fairly certain there would be a lot of potential adopters if this LTE variant would be priced at $200, so likely on-par with the non-LTE second-gen N7.

Only don’t be rooting for the LTE rehash to come with any other upgrades. It’s even listed as running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean in AnTuTu, so if 4.3 exists and will be introduced during I/O, chances are the N7 LTE will not come with the new OS on board, but rather get updated soon after its launch.

As for all the other specs, the benchmark score (12,623 points, which is very close to the current Nexus 7’s results) hints at the tab coming with the same old quad-core 1.2 GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 CPU and 1 GB of RAM. Plus, you know, all the usual, including the 4,325 mAh battery, 1.2 MP camera, 1,280 x 800 pix res display and 16 or 32 GB of storage. Anyone possibly interested? Why? Why not?
