AT&T offering Google Nexus 7

Users can now grab a 32GB Nexus 7 tablet with AT&T LTE 4G data access for $349.

Have a hankering for a Google Nexus 7 tablet along with LTE service? AT&T feels it has an offer you can't resist. The carrier has now partnered with Google to sell a 32GB version of the slate complete with AT&T LTE 4G data access for $349.

Of course you can also buy a 32GB Nexus 7 model for the same $349 direct from the Google Play store without having to commit to a lengthy two-year service contract. As someone who mainly uses tablets at home over Wi-Fi, or free-load off of friends and family's network connections, purchasing a separate data plan for a device like this is not very compelling.

Even so, those who travel often and find themselves with only slow hotel networks (if they're lucky) will certainly welcome a tablet linked to AT&T LTE. The device could also serve as a mobile hot spot on the road, and I admit AT&T's new 4G infrastructure is very fast, at least where you can get it.
