NUMERICAL MOBILE OPERATOR Three has announced that it will be selling the Google Nexus 7 3G.
Three is remaining typically quiet about pricing and release date details, but select retailers have already started selling the 3G enabled Asus tablet, which has been priced at £239 at the Google Play store. Three likely will offer the tablet on contracts for those who don't fancy paying upfront, we can hope with its all-you-can-eat data bundled in.
Sylvia Chind, head of Devices at Three said, "The Nexus 7 3G is packed full of innovative entertainment features, and coupled with 3G connectivity is perfect for staying online when out and about. Added to that, because of its super-fast processor, we think it'll be a real hit with gaming fans."
In terms of specifications, the Google Nexus 7 3G is nearly identical to the original version of the Asus tablet, although it has an extra 16GB of internal storage, upping the amount to 32GB.
The tablet also comes with an upgraded version of its Android operating system, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which brings a few new features to the Nexus tablet. These include an upgraded version of Google Now, a new Swype-like keyboard and access to Google Music and Movies in the UK.
Google also announced the LG Nexus 4 smartphone on Monday, its Android 4.2 flagship smartphone. This features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, a 4.7in HD touchscreen, 2GB of RAM and an 8MP rear-facing camera, and has been priced at just £239 at the Google Play store. µ
