You can now buy the unlocked LTE Nexus 7 from the Play Store

The standard Wi-Fi models for the 2013 Nexus 7 launched several weeks ago, but the unlocked LTE model was noticeably absent from the Play Store. Google has now changed that, with the cellular version of its tablet now available to buy for £299.

That’s a little pricey compared to to the Wi-Fi models, but you’re getting extremely broad LTE support for the money. The cellular Nexus 7 supports the major LTE bands here in the UK – 800, 1800, and 2100Mhz – as well the 700Mhz band used in the US, among others. LTE roaming, then, shouldn’t be a problem, and there’s pentaband HSPA+ support too.

The specs for the LTE model otherwise remain unchanged. The tablet features a 7-inch 1920×1200 IPS display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. There’s also a 5-megapixel camera on the rear, as well a 1.2-megapixel front-facing shooter for video calls.
