The Google Nexus 7 is currently only available in a WiFi version , but new rumours suggest this could all be about to change with Google planning to launch a model with 3G support.
According to new information, reported by PhoneArena, Google are just a couple of weeks away from unveiling a 3G version of the Google Nexus 7. Infact, it could even be in stores in as little as 6 weeks , which is likely to be around the time Apple's iPad Mini and Amazon's new Kindle devices hit the stores.
The crew at 3G.co.uk love the Google Nexus 7 and it has become our tablet of choice. The availability of a 3G model would just make it even more desirable. But for us it's not much of a problem to tether 3G from our smartphone.
One bonus of the 3G model is that it's likely to prompt operators to carry the device which will enable users to get Google's tablet without having to pay for it upfront. We'd be quite interested in picking one up with unlimited data if the price was right !
Talking of price we assume the price of the 3G version will be a little higher than the current £159.99 price-point and we'd expect Google to price the 3G Google Nexus 7 around £199.99. However, we don't have any official confirmation from Google at this time , but as always we'll keep you posted when we hear more about the tablet.
