3G Google Nexus 7 inbound
Asus is ramping up production of a 3G-enabled Google Nexus 7, it has been claimed.
Citing a "well placed insider", website Modaco says the cellular-connectable tablet will launch in roughly six weeks' time.
Beyond the incorporation of an HSPA radio, the Nexus 7 3G will be essentially identical to the existing Wi-Fi only model.
I initially thought that, but in reality I always have my phone with me and WiFi/Bluetooth tethering is so easy that it doesn't make sense to have two separate contracts/SIMs.
So in reality I would actually prefer to only have one data access device (the phone) with the other (the tablet) tethered to it.
Just my use-case obviously.
Oh great, just as the world (and me) has gone out and bought the wifi one, Google releases the one many of us would have gone for in the first place.
Anyone wanna buy a wifi-only Nexus 7?
Ditch the 3G
and just put a microSD slot in the darn thing !
