Evidence Points To Cellular-Enabled Nexus 7
Rumors about a new Nexus tablet have been all over the place lately. We’ve heard about the 32GB model, which we’re convinced is just about to launch, as well as a not-so-plausible sounding $99 version. Early last month, there was also talk about a 3G-connected Nexus 7, but nothing in the way of evidence to back it up. That all changes today, upon the discovery of some regulatory filings that out a cellular-enabled Nexus 7.
It’s not the FCC this time around that we look to for info, but Taiwan’s version, the NCC. Data from the agency’s system reveals an “ASUS Pad” with WCDMA 3G connectivity. What makes us say this is a new Nexus 7? The original tablet was model ME370T, while this new 3G tablet we’re looking at is model ME370TG.
We’re still at a loss for knowing where the tablet will be released (besides Taiwan, of course), when, or at what price, but maybe Google will have something to say at its event later this month.
