The Google Nexus 7 Android tablet has just hit the European market, and news writers have just got their hands on it, yet Paul O’Brian of MoDaCo ROM has leaked a new rumor: Google has plans to revise Nexus 7, and the second-gen Android tablet will feature 3G connectivity.
The Google tablet has been praised by most of the reviewers for its compactness and simplicity: Asus and the search giant have come up with a powerful tablet computer at an affordable price. However, the Nexus 7 has had its share of criticism too, targeting its limited storage abilities—8 or 16 GB—and lack of cellular connectivity. While some say the Internet connectivity issue can be solved easily by setting up a mobile hotspot in a few seconds, the cost factor weighs heavier.
In other words, Google has to come up with a better solution. And, according to Paul O’Brian, Asus is already working on a revised version of the Nexus 7 that will feature a 3G module. O’Brian has a long track record of accurate hunches, so if you are after a Nexus 7 featuring cellular connectivity, you may want to wait about six weeks and get one for Christmas.
There is no other data available at the moment, such as desired rate or expanded storage abilities. Although a 3G Nexus 7 sounds like a plan Google had before the launch of its WiFi-only tablet, its advantages could turn into problems: you will need to purchase the Nexus 7 directly from the wireless operator, instead of Google, cutting the cord between the Internet giant and the customer. And the rest is already history: you may already be familiar with the updates hassle.Contact Us for News Tips, Corrections and Feedback
