While the Wi-Fi only version of the Nexus 7 (2013) is now available in most major markets, it looks like the LTE version of the device is available as well in Germany and Italy, contrary to previous reports that suggested a mid-September release.
Granted, the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE isn’t available in these countries from the Google Play Store, but from third party retailers such as Media Markt and Saturn in Germany, and Redcoon, as well as the ASUS store, in Italy. The LTE version of the device, which also features 32GB of internal storage, will set you back €349, which is around $466.
As a reminder, the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE features a 7-inch IPS display with 1920×1200 resolution, a 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 5MP rear camera and 1.2MP front camera, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on-board. Another addition in the LTE version is the ability to use your device as a Wi-Fi hotspot, which wasn’t available with the 2012 3G version. Of course, this isn’t recommended unless you have a data plan, but it’s still a great option to have.
