nexus 7 2 review 015 640x426If you’re looking to get your hands on a tablet, how does the Google Nexus 7 sound to you? The tablet is not only relatively affordable, but it also packs some pretty impressive specs making it a pretty good bargain for what you are paying for. Now the good news is that if you were hoping to pick it up from a carrier, either for 4G LTE purposes or hoping that it might be subsidized in some way, the ever reliable @evleaks has revealed that the Google Nexus 7 tablet will be making its way onto Verizon’s network in the very near future. No specific dates were mentioned but given the leak and the fact that the tablet has been around for a while, we can only assume it won’t be too long before we hear an official announcement of sorts.

@evleaks also claims that the Nexus 7 will be arriving on Verizon’s network without the carrier’s branding at all. This is great for those who’d rather not have a carrier’s logo splashed across the device, which to a certain extent affects its resale value as well. We’re not sure if this is because it is a Google device that Verizon chose/was not allowed to put their branding on it, but either way it’s good news for would-be customers. We’re not sure if Verizon will be offering any subsidies on the tablet, especially since tablet subsidies are pretty uncommon compared to smartphones, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for more info so check back with us later for more updates!
