Google Planning 3G Nexus 7 Update Within Weeks

By Gary Cutlack on at

Asus is said to be working on an updated version of its popular Nexus 7 tablet, which could be on sale within a couple of months. The big and indeed only hardware change? 3G support.

The news comes via a source of Android site Modaco, which claims the updated 3G Nexus 7 model could go on sale within six weeks. Techradar's talked to Asus which declined to make any comment on the subject of such a quick hardware refresh, while network O2 said it hadn't a clue about it either.

Still, might be worth keeping an eye on Google's Play Store, if the lack of 3G support is your only excuse not to treat yourself to one of Google's lovely little tabs. [Modaco via Techradar]
