    Nexus 7

    While the Asus-made Google Nexus 7 is one of the most powerful and affordable 7-inch tablets on the market, up until now it has been lacking in one area: it was missing support for 3G. Today this all changes as the Nexus 7 32GB+3G is now available through Google Play.

    From overall design to the internal hardware, the 3G version of the Nexus 7 is the exact same as the non-3G variants of the tablet, with the exception of mobile broadband support. That means you still get a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 processor, an IPS LCD display with a 1280 x 800 resolution, 1GB of RAM, a front-facing 1.2MP camera, and 32GB of storage.

    What truly makes the Nexus 7 32GB+3G exciting is that it will arrive totally unlocked with Jelly Bean and an empty SIM slot that will work with HSPA+ connections from over 200 GSM carriers across the globe. This might be a little disappointing for those that were looking for 4G LTE, but this will be a non-issue for the majority of global users that don’t yet have access to LTE speeds.

    If you’ve been waiting off on getting the Nexus 7 in hopes of mobile broadband coming to the tablet, the time to buy has finally come. Best of all, the Nexus 7 32GB+3G is only $299.

      Is it possible to get this device if I live out of the US in a country that Google Play Store doesn’t all me to access it because my country is not listed???

      I have an International Shipping account with ARAMEX that could bring the device from the US to my country but I need to access Google Play Store to purchase the device and ship it to my ARAMEX account in NY and then get it here to my country,, Saudi Arabia,

      google is charging both sales tax and 14$ shipping. That’s 30$ more for my state. I think I’ll wait or google starts shipping this thing for free.
