Google’s latest Nexus 7 (2013) tablet with 4G LTE is now available through Google Play Store in US for $349 (Rs. 22,447 approximately).
Google announced the news on Twitter and also revealed that the Nexus 7 will come to T-Mobile stores in the U.S. next month. The tweet said, “Nexus 7 with 4G LTE is now available on Google Play in the US and is coming to US T-Mobile stores in October!” The new Nexus 7 LTE variant has arrived at the stores more than a month after the Wi-Fi variant of the Nexus 7 went on sale. Currently, the second-generation Nexus 7 comes with T-Mobile SIM. However, it comes unlocked that allows other carrier options on the tablet as well. However, there is no official word from Google on the device’s rollout to countries like India.
The search engine giant launched the second-generation Nexus 7 in July alongside the unveiling of the new Android 4.3 Jelly Bean platform.
The Nexus 7 (2013) comes with a 7-inch full-HD display (1920×1200 pixels), implying a boast-worthy pixel density of 323ppi. It also features scratch-resistant Corning glass. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz, and features 2GB of RAM, apart from 32GB of inbuilt storage (with no SD card slot). The new Nexus 7 also features a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera.
Previously, the Nexus 7 (2013) was diagnosed with various issues, notably the erratic performance of multi-touch functionality on the tablet’s display. Google rolled out a firmware update for the Nexus 7 (2013), addressing many of these issues.
