Google Rumored To Launch Nexus 7 With 3G Next Month

Google has enjoyed plenty of success with its Nexus 7 tablet. Now, it appears the company is looking to expand its tablet offerings with the addition of a 3G model that could launch in approximately six weeks. According to reports on the Web, Google and Asus are already in the process of building a 3G-enabled version of the Nexus 7. The report claims Asus is ramping up manufacturing in preparation for a launch in about six weeks, which would indicate a mid-October release.

At this point, it appears the Nexus 7 with 3G connectivity would have the same specs as the original version of the tablet with the addition of the cellular radio. When or if, Asus and Google are planning a 4G LTE-equipped model is unknown at this point.

Given the competition between the Nexus 7 and some of the other 7-inch tablets on the market such as Amazon's Kindle Fire, it's possible 3G could be a differentiating factor. However, it's also likely we'll see 3G connectivity for both of these popular tablets soon—Amazon is expected to unveil new models of its Kindle Fire tablet at a media event this Thursday.

Shoulda gone straight to 4G, but then keeping the price down would have been a problem. As long as the ipad mini doesn't have 4G this should do really well.

Im fine with WiFi :D. My phone is good enough for social networks and the internet. I only want a tablet for reading class work and the occasional gaming on a bigger screen then my phone :). Plus it would be cheaper for me to get tether on my phone with the tablet.
