Last week, Google unveiled new Nexus devices including a mild Nexus 7 refresh. The company retired the 8GB model and introduced two 32GB versions, a Wi-Fi-only tablet and a Nexus 7 3G.
While the Nexus 7 will be available for purchase from the Google Play Store in various countries and from several electronics retailers, some carriers will also be interested in offering the 3G model to their subscribers.
One such mobile operator is T-Mobile, which is also selling the Nexus 4. In fact, we have a new leak to show you today, an internal T-Mobile document that reveals the pricing details and release date for the T-Mobile Nexus 7. And there aren’t any surprises there, the HSPA+ tablet will be launched on November 13 and it will cost $299.99. That’s the full retail price for the device, so don’t expect any subsidies for an already affordable device.
To get it, you’ll have to submit your order through the Google Play Store, as the device won’t be listed apparently in T-Mobile’s online store, and from the looks of it, it won’t be available in actual T-Mobile stores for purchase either, at least for the time being.
Anyone buying the 3G version of the T-Mobile Nexus 7?

I’m trying to figure this out. Its unlocked on HSPA+ anyway, and from what i’ve seen if you just bought it straight from Google it’d come with an ATT unlocked sim card.. So can you just swap that with your Tmo sim and be good to go or will you have to buy one through the “Tmobile Page” on the Google Play store in order to get a Tmo 3g specific device? I really dont want to have to unlock this thing when i buy it…
