Verizon Wireless confirmed it will soon offer the Nexus 7 (2013) with 4G LTE connectivity. The device will launch on Thursday, February 13 for $349.99 in stores and online. The carrier says that customers can also opt to sign a new two-year contract with the tablet for a “limited time,” bringing its asking price down to just $249.99.
The tablet can be added to a Share Everything data plan for just $10 per month, which means you’ll pay $240 for data use on the tablet over two years. Verizon also said that anyone who already owns a 4G LTE-capable Nexus 7 (2013) will be able to use it on Verizon’s network after a software update is applied.
Verizon’s model doesn’t appear to have any distinguishing changes over the option you can buy direct from Google, save for the 4G LTE connectivity. There doesn’t appear to be any visual branding on the device and as a Nexus product it shouldn’t have any carrier bloatware pre-installed (we hope). If you want to add some extra flare, Verizon will also sell a few accessories, including a Speck StyleFolio case for $34.99 that’s available in black, blue and pink, and an Adopter Folio Frame available in black and red for $49.99.
