INTERNET GIANT Google's latest Nexus 7 tablet with 4G has gone on sale in the UK.
The Google Nexus 7 LTE is available from both the Google Play store and O2. Picking it up directly from Google will set you back £299 - with delivery promised within two days, and lets you use the device with any 4G network you choose, be it O2, EE or Vodafone.
Buying from O2 is a different story, however. The mobile operator is selling the new Nexus 7 for £319.99, complete with a free SIM and 2GB of 3G data. O2 won't be offering the new Nexus 7 with 4G likely until "the end of the year", with the tablet joining the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in the mobile network's list of available devices that still lack 4G support.
O2 has yet to reveal the reason behind this. However, The INQUIRER has heard that it's likely because the operator still needs to carry out tests on the device before it will release a software update to allow 4G connectivity later this year.
Still, for those who don't care about 4G, that's not all the new Google Nexus 7 has on offer. The 7in tablet claims to have the highest resolution on the market, and boasts a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and Google's latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean mobile operating system.
There are also both 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras, and the tablet has a nine hour battery life and comes in 16GB and 32GB internal storage models. The 4G version comes with 32GB of internal storage only.
The Nexus 7 with 4G is also now available in Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Japan and Korea. µ
