Japanese publication Impress Watch reports that the 3G Nexus 7 model will be available to buy in Japan on Feb. 9. Pricing has not yet been confirmed, but it’s expected to cost 29.800 yen, which converts to $318 in USD.
While the device will be available on Feb. 9, this does not necessarily mean everyone will be able to purchase it. After all, the first batch of stock is destined to go out the door within the hour of its release. Let’s just hope ASUS has a plethora of Nexus 7 tablets to go around and we don’t have to repeat the Nexus 4 fiasco.
Aside from a micro-SIM slot and 3G connectivity, this model isn’t very different compared to the Wi-Fi-only model. The device comes with a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU, 32GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM and a 7-inch IPS 1280 x 800 display. The tablet is also equipped with NFC, Bluetooth 3.0 and is running the latest version of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2.
Are you planning on picking up a 3G Nexus 7 on launch day or are you satisfied with the Wi-Fi only model? Are you waiting to see if there’s any facts behind the rumored Nexus 7.7?
