+Marshall Baer I have no problems going to get a Verizon SIM card, it would just be nice if it said somewhere "Supports Verizon and AT&T with carrier-issued SIM card" before I spend $350 to find out by trial-and-error.
+Matt Abdou Read the specs. I'm not gonna say it will work on Verizon (Over Priced Data) but it will work with AT&T... Unlocked means its not tied to any specific carrier. Just like when the First Nexus 7 came out, you were supplied with an AT&T SIM.
+Epic Tea No Phone Calls; the phone/dialer portion of the android build is removed, probably just like the original nexus 7. There is an entire 100+ page topic on XDA about developers trying to make the tablet capable of phone calls without the use of a SIP/VOIP service.
+Martin Schalck >Yet again initially only in the US I fixed your comment for you. Google has already confirmed the LTE Nexus 7 will be released in several other countries, e.g. UK, Germany and France.
I live in a hilly rural area in Bavaria. As far as 3G coverage is concerned, T-Mobile can run circles around O2 and Vodafone in my village … is the same true for LTE, or would O2 actually be preferable?
When will devices from the Play Store be available for more countries (particularly, all EU countries)? I'm not asking for a specific date, but a time frame (such as Q1 2014 or even 2h 2014) would be nice and not to mention encouraging.
Amazon is kicking your ass when it comes to availability.
Looks like they work on all plans (ATT, TMO, Verizon). I have a month to month ATT plan from my original Nexus 7 (2012) version currently. I'm wondering if I stick the ATT sim in the new 2013 N7 that I will automatically connect via LTE and retain the same 3G/$30 a month plan I'm on now?
+Bobby Kundelov exactly, outside US we appreciate Google devices more than people in US.....the US is the only market where Apple gains over Android. So whatever Google does (except for a great TV ads showing how the competitors are outdated) nothing helps, the "simplicity strategy" without features of the Google products will just make us angry and we leave for the competitors (the great example is android Google maps product = using less and less, Sygic using more and more) +Nexus
+Roman Kasal When apple release a product they do it internationally. I can understand if its a Sony or samsung or LG to be on differend markeds in differend times. But Nexus product should hit the Shelfs at the same time. Period.
Harry Carter, I called Verizon and they told me the same thing as they told Meena because they do not want unlocked devices on their network. Everyone keeps saying buy a sim card from Verizon but, they pair their sims with their devices. So how can this unlocked version work on Verizon's network without waiting for the Verizon branded version? Steal the sim out of my existing Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone and put it in this? Is that guaranteed to work? I will wait to drop the $350 until someone can actually CONFIRM this.
So! I called up Google. As told to ask Verizon if it will accept the SIM card. I called Verizon back. Yes they will. Advised to call the global network and they will activate the card over the phone with id#. I called the global network support to confirm and yes! It works.
I did however end up placing an order which is scheduled to ship on 9/13 so even if there is no more information before I receive it I should be able to find out for myself early next week. I'll be sure to let you know.
Got mine today (Yeah!) Thanks! HOWEVER - Google Wallet says 'Your device isn't compatible with this version'. Wow. Bought this to go with the HTC One Google Edition so I could get my Wallet back. WHY???
I have the Wi-Fi oneand its fantastic...Why am I till itching to get the New LTE Nexus7 for AT&T? I mean, I have 2 phones with tethering already. Someone, make me stop or convince me otherwise. I can't justify it.
There is a long thread in the Google groups about random reboots of this device. I personally experienced it, and even my device no longer powering on after only ten days of having the product. I exchanged it and haven't had any reboots or other problems with my latest device. Is there a plan to root out these issues and find the true root cause? Others may not be as lucky as I was that I was still in my exchange period with Wal-Mart. I love my Nexus 7 (2013), so I hate to see it lose a fan base because of terrible build and zero feedback from the company.
Love the original Nexus 7 and think the new Nexus 7 is awesome! But would like to hear info on the new Nexus 10. It is long in the tooth and desperately needing an upgrade (in particular much more memory and 3g/LTE capability)... any word on this?
I'm planning to buy the N7 2013 LTE in the US. But I'll be using it only in India. Should I buy the tablet from Play Store through AT&T or T-Mobile? Or does it really matter and the N7 will work on the 3G/LTE networks back here in India?
