nexus7-lte-vzwIt was not too long ago when we did mention how the Nexus 7 LTE was more than ready to work on Verizon’s network, but somehow or rather, the thing is not yet available there simply because it has yet to receive the proper certification. Well, here we are now with Verizon Wireless sharing a little bit more on that particular situation, by claiming that the Nexus 7 has already entered its certification process sometime last month, but did not manage to complete the entire slew of relevant testing required for certification. Normally, such a process would require anywhere from four to half a dozen weeks, so in Verizon’s own words, they too, have every single expectation that the new Nexus 7 ought to be certified “shortly.”

The moment that particular milestone is achieved, Verizon has every single plan to work alongside Google so that the Nexus 7 LTE model will eventually be activated on the Verizon network. I do wonder whether it is an oversight of sorts, when Google first announced in July this year that the Nexus 7 will play nice with Verizon’s LTE network, but somehow, did not manage to do so when launched. Nothing quite like some paperwork (or the lack of it) to be a party pooper! [Press Release]
