Rumors of a 3G-enabled Nexus 7 started circulating at the beginning of September, with Paul O’Brien’s Modaco stating that the device would launch within six weeks. Unfortunately that time frame has just passed, however, with Monday’s Google event looming it appears we’re only days away from seeing the device for the first time.
It was reported earlier today that UK retailer Carphone Warehouse prematurely opened pre-orders for the new LG Nexus 4 smartphone, confirming one of of Google’s unconfirmed products expected to be shown on its October 29 Android event. Well additional news has come out that continues to reveal the key products expected to be announced at Google’s Playground press event. According to a listing on the FCC website – a 3G model of Google’s Nexus 7 is on its way, all but confirming that the device will launch on the same day.
While certainly this find doesn’t come as a surprise, it is the first confirmation of the device. The Digitial Reader conducted some investigative work and was able to find Google’s new 3G-enabled Nexus 7 tablet listed on the FCC website yesterday (October 24). This confirms earlier leaks that the ASUS-made ME370TG model would join its WiFi-only cousin on retailers’ shelves and on the Google Play Store.
Google‘s Nexus 7 is officially listed as the Asus ME370T, so finding a product titled as the ME370TG model on the FCC website, it wasn’t exactly difficult to link the two. The Digital Reader notes that ASUS has hidden all of the important information, so we are yet able to confirm whether it will be the 32GB model we told you about last week.
