Guy orders Wi-Fi-only 2013 Google Nexus 7 tablet, gets LTE model instead
Life is definitely more enjoyable when fortune is on your side. Take this guy in China, for example – he just ordered the new Wi-Fi-only Google Nexus 7 tablet, yet got the LTE model instead, with 32GB of storage. You know, the LTE model that isn't even available for purchase yet. About $331 is what he paid for the tablet, which makes this deal quite a bargain. Too bad that the guy can't enjoy LTE speeds with his current subscription, but we suppose he'll be fine with HSPA+ instead.

In the meantime, folks in the US still don't know when the LTE Google Nexus 7 tablet will be launched. All the info we have is that the tablet will be sold not only at the Play Store, but also via T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon. The LTE-capable Nexus 7 tablet will retail for $349 and will come with 32GB of storage.

Is it me, or does he have a Moto X too? Look at the reflection.

There's not enough details to work off -- for all we know, it could be a Chinese knockoff. There are so many (cheap) smartphones in Asia that never surface in the US. Check out this phone that has a similar lens and flash.

Nah, the Moto X doesn't have such large volume rockers.

The LTE model would be a nice surprise, but I'd really rather not have another data plan. I'm good with the PDA Net+ & PDA Net Tablet combo.
