New Nexus 7 LTE available in Google Play with 2GB of T-Mobile
Those of us in the United States have had to wait patiently as the LTE model of the new Google Nexus 7 tablet made its way out around the world, but still didn't make an appearance here. Well, the wait is finally over, and if you want to purchase a new Nexus 7 with LTE, it is available in the Google Play Store.

The version available in the Google Play store is unlocked, but it does come with a T-Mobile SIM card which will get you 2GB of data for free for one month. After that, you either have to sign up for a T-Mo plan, or jump to a different carrier. The radio in the Nexus 7 will support the T-Mobile LTE network and the LTE networks for AT&T and Verizon. It will also support the T-Mobile HSPA+ network, the AT&T 3G network, but not the Verizon CDMA network. 

If you want to get your hands on the LTE Nexus 7, it is available through Google Play right now for $349 with 32GB of storage; and, it will be available through T-Mobile stores in October.

Nice deal, but I'll keep my 32GB Wi-Fi model and just tether off of my phone.

I probably should have waited, since I just got the 32GB Wifi model. Yet, I am not sure I would use the LTE. I had a Verizon iPad 2 before, and only used about 50MB of the data plan I was paying $35 a month for.

T-Mobile still has horrible coverage where I am. Where is the AT&T model?

The model supports Verizon, T-Mobile AND At@t so you should be good to go.
