When the LTE variant of the Nexus 7 (2013) was first introduced, it was revealed that the tablet would be compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon’s network.
Unfortunately, things got a bit more complicated when it came time to activate that shiny new Nexus on Big Red’s network. Although activating the tablet was possible, Verizon sure didn’t make it easy and was more than willing to throw together excuses as to why. Months later, it looks like Verizon is getting ready to sell the Nexus 7 2013 directly.
Just last month @evleaks tweeted the news of the Nexus 7′s arrival to the Verizon network, and thankfully reported it would not feature carrier branding. Now we have even more evidence to suggest the Nexus 7 2013 is almost here.
First, a tipster recently sent us an image of Verizon-branded screen protectors for the Nexus 7 2013 (seen above), and now Droid-Life is reporting that an unnamed source has confirmed the tablet will show up on Big Red’s network soon, with February 13th named as the target date.
Keep in mind that neither Verizon or Google have confirmed this rumor just yet, so speculation is still advised. If Verizon does carry the tablet directly and manages to leave it untouched – bloatware and logo wise – anyone planning on picking this one up?
