The new Google Nexus 7 that was launched months ago, finally seems all set to hit Verizon Wireless in the US. Nothing has been revealed officially as yet, but it is expected to be available via the carrier next week itself, on February 13 to be precise.
The guys over at Droid Life have learnt through their undisclosed sources that the new generation Nexus 7 is almost ready to be a part of the big red carrier’s clan. As the website reports, the service provider has given quite a few reasons for not carrying the tablet. One of them was that Google has failed to get a Verizon certification. Later, the telecom operator said that it is waiting for the search engine giant to release a software update for it.
Whatever the problem was, it looks like the two companies have resolved it and are now willing to sell the Google Nexus 7 together. As of now, it is not clear whether the slate will hit online stores or the company-owned retail outlets. Hopefully, all the channels will offer the Verizon gadget.
As you may already know, the tablet brings a 7-inch touchscreen of 1920 x 1200p resolution as well as dual cameras. Android Jelly Bean 4.3 powers the slab and a quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC has been integrated in it. 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB onboard memory and a 15Wh battery can also be expected with the device amongst a lot of other things.
As we said, Verizon Wireless is yet to officially proclaim the arrival of the Google Nexus 7. We are expecting the price to be out very soon.
