Nexus 7 2013 with LTE now available in the US for $349

As promised by Google, the LTE version of the Nexus 7 2013 edition is now available on Google Play for $349 (£222) with 32GB of storage. According to the listing, Google and T-Mobile have partnered to sell the tablet shipping with a T-Mobile SIM card - but don't worry, it will work with AT&T and Verizon stateside if that's the route you want to go. 

The Wi-Fi packing version of the Nexus 7 was released in August, and we gave the tablet high marks in our review. It took a bit longer for Google and Asus to roll out a version with LTE bands. Compared to the Wi-Fi version, customers will be dropping $80 more for the pleasure of accessing the internet outside of the comforts of Wi-Fi.  

While not required, customers who want T-Mobile's service will get an added benefit. Google and T-Mobile are running a special promotion to give users 2GB of free 4G data for the first month with “no obligations".

The LTE version of the Nexus 7 is now available on Google Play. If you'd rather check it out in-store, Google says the Nexus 7 LTE will be available in T-Mobile stores beginning in October.

The LTE Nexus 7 will launch in the UK on 13 September on carrier O2.
