Verizon says Nexus 7 LTE certification could be done "soon" (or in 4-6 weeks)
The LTE Nexus 7 is technically compatible with Verizon's LTE network, we already know that. But, users cannot activate a Nexus 7 on Verizon's network, and we learned yesterday that was because the device has yet to be certified by Verizon. Unfortunately, Verizon wasn't very clear about if and when that certification will happen, but the company has clarified today.

The clarification isn't exactly as clear as you might hope though, because the ultimate message is that the certification will be done "shortly" but there's no clue as to what that means. Verizon's full statement reads:

The certification process takes 4 to 6 weeks, and Verizon says the LTE Nexus 7 began that process in August. So, it could be arriving any day, or it could be arriving in another month, depending on when the process began in August.
