Verizon finally got its hands on the Nexus 7 (2013) with LTE last month, but today the carrier dropped the tablet’s price from $349.99 with a two-year contract to just $49.99. The stock Android device is available from Verizon’s website with free overnight shipping, and is also selling for $349.99 off-contract with LTE capability.
The second-generation Nexus 7 comes equipped with a 7.-inch 1920 x 1200-pixel display, a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, front and rear cameras, a 3950mAh battery, NFC, built-in wireless charging, 2GB of RAM, and either 16GB or 32GB of non-expandable storage. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box with the promise of quick access to future updates.
The new Nexus 7 is a great tablet, but almost eight months after its launch it’s starting to feel a little less new. There’s no guarantee Google will release a refreshed version anytime soon, but we’re expecting at least one new tablet from the company in the not-too-distant future ,so it may be worth waiting a bit longer. Then again, if your heart’s set on Verizon’s LTE-enabled Nexus 7 this is still a great deal on a great device.
