Google Nexus 7 32GB with 3G coming to Three

A new 3G-capable version of Google’s hot-selling budget Android slate, the Nexus 7, will soon be landing on Three in the UK, the mobile operator has confirmed.

Until now, the Asus-made tablet was only available in Wi-Fi only variants. That’ll change when it launches on Three’s high-speed HSPA+ network imminently.

Officially announced yesterday, the 3G Nexus 7 also doubles the on board storage from 16GB to 32GB. Everything else, though, remains identical. That means you’ll still get a seven-inch IPS display (with 216 pixel density) for reading and browsing on the move and a 1.3GHz Tegra 3 quad-core processor to keep things ticking over.

Sylvia Chind, head of Devices at Three, said: “The Nexus 7 3G is packed full of innovative entertainment features, and coupled with 3G connectivity is perfect for staying online when out and about. Added to that, because of its super-fast processor, we think it'll be a real hit with gaming fans.”

Pricing plans have not been revealed yet but will likely be announced closer to release. The unlocked version has been priced at £239, so expect contract options to be fairly reasonable in the £15-20 a month range - and if it comes with Three’s all-you-can-eat-data for that outlay, so much the better.

Alongside the 3G Nexus 7, Google also unveiled the Nexus 10, its first branded 10-inch tablet, as well as a new smartphone, the LG Nexus 4. Details of their release in the UK are as-yet unavailable, but we’ll bring you all the gen as soon as we have them. So keep ‘em peeled.
