When Google announced that their impressive new Nexus 7 tablet would come in a 4G LTE model with 32GB of storage for only $349 many were excited, and have been desperately waiting for a release date. Currently a WiFi only model is available, but now we're hearing the LTE flavored slate will hit China in a few weeks, slated to arrive in mid September.
Today Google announced the LTE Nexus 7 would come to China, and they gave a mid September time frame according to the Blog of Mobile, a popular Chinese site. The 7-inch full HD slate is impressive, and all I want is a Verizon model to be in my hands already.
The tablet has been available all month long, but since being announced back at the tail end of July when Google claimed an LTE version would be "coming soon" we haven't heard a word regarding the LTE flavor. If Google's planning to release a LTE-equipped model in China in mid September, we should be hearing a US release date any day now.
