New Nexus 7 2 AH 0013

It was only last week, that the Nexus 7 LTE went up for sale on Google Play. Now exactly 7 days later, it’s now listed as no longer for sale. It really makes us wonder why, or what’s going on with it. Maybe Google found out about the problems with connecting it to Verizon’s network? Or maybe it was put up for sale too early? Whatever the reason is, we hope to find out more very soon.

The Nexus 7 LTE did come with a T-Mobile SIM so you can check out their network. But the device was unlocked so it could be used on AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile. Which means one LTE device could work on three different networks. Man that’s pretty awesome. However as we noted above, some people were having issues with Verizon LTE on the Nexus 7. There were also some having issues activating theirs on AT&T’s network. I even heard some reports of their IMEI of their Nexus 7 (2013) LTE getting blocked from AT&T. So I’m willing to bet that Google has held off on the device sales until they can figure out these problems, before more complaints come rolling in.


The Nexus 7 LTE features a 7-inch 1920×1200 resolution display along with 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM and a 3950mAh battery. Don’t forget, it’s also sporting Android 4.3, which should soon be upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat. It’s all powered by the Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, which is the same processor from the Nexus 4, and its definitely a great SoC. It’s also in the Moto X, and no one’s complaining about performance on that device either.

We’ll have to keep an eye on the Play Storeand hopefully it’ll be available for purchase again soon for $349. Did any of our readers get their order in and their Nexus 7 LTE before Google took the listing down? Be sure to let us know in the comments below.
