Verizon unveils LTE Nexus 7 tablet for $250
A new software update also provides Verizon LTE support for cellular-enabled versions of the tablet.
Google's LTE Nexus 7 is now officially part of Verizon's network.
As of Thursday, Verizon is selling the tablet for $250 with the usual two-year contract, or $350 on a month-to-month off-contract basis. The Nexus 7 is now available online and will land in Verizon retail stores as well.
Further, current owners of the 4G LTE Nexus 7 can now officially activate it on Verizon's network courtesy of a software update that sailed forth on Wednesday. Though users were already able to "unofficially" activate the tablet, the new update comes with Verizon's blessings.
Owners of the LTE Nexus 7 faced a roadblock last September when. At the time, the carrier said it had not yet certified the device for its LTE network but that it expected such certification to come shortly.
