O2 will offer a number of 4G tablets including Google's Nexus 7 2, Samsung's Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1.
O2 are now offering 4G in the UK with their network going live at the end of last month. Admittedly, O2's 4G service is only currently available in London, Bradford and Leeds, but a further 10 cities will be added before the end of 2013.
Tablets are the perfect device to take advantage of the increased speeds of 4G , because their primary uses are to browse the web, stream videos and play mobile games. O2 have now confirmed that they'll be offering a number of 4G tablets including the Google's Nexus 7.
The 4G version of Google's new and improved Android tablet is already available to pre-order and is priced at £319.99. Those who pre-order today will also get a free case worth £29.99 and can expect the tablet to land on their doorstep on September 13th.
Not a fan of Google's Nexus 7 ? Fear not, because O2 have also confirmed they'll be offering the 4G version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and 10.1. The operator has added both tablets to it's "Coming Soon" page, although no details of it's price or launch date were given.
Now for the disappointing news. O2 are yet to unveil their 4G tablet data plans, which means that until the end of the year anyone buying a 4G tablet will only be able to use O2's 3G network. That's pretty disappointing because it means that, for now at least, your only option is to buy O2's 4G tablets on Pay As You Go.
