Last Friday we reported that the LTE version of the Nexus 7 2013 was likely on its way to Verizon’s network at last. Now Verizon has officially confirmed the tablet will arrive on February 13th at a price of $349.99 for the 32GB LTE model, or $249.99 for those willing to sign a two-year contract.
The even better news is that existing owners of the LTE Nexus 7 2013 will finally be able to activate their tablets without hassle on Big Red’s network without dealing with a workaround. On Verizon’s website, the carrier reveals that existing owners of the tablet will be able to activate as long as they “download the latest software update” first.
Regardless of whether you buy from Verizon or bring your own device, the Nexus 7 2013 can be added on to an existing Share Everything plan for just $10 a month.
It’s great to see Verizon finally allowing the Nexus 7 2013 onto its network, too bad it took them about a half year to get there, though. We suspect that folks that purchased the Nexus 7 (2013) LTE in the past have since moved on to another network (at least for the tablet), but perhaps this change in policy is enough to bring them back.
