The tablet runs under Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS
Mobile phone carrier Three UK announced on Tuesday plans to make the 3G-enabled Nexus 7 tablet PC available for purchase on its network in the near future.Made official last week, the new device comes with the same features and capabilities as the original Nexus 7, but adds support for 3G networks, providing users with increased options when it comes to connectivity.
Moreover, the new device version will arrive on shelves with Google’s new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform release loaded on it right from the start.
“Offering the ultimate Google experience, the Nexus 7 has access to millions of eBooks, thousands of great movies and over 675,000 apps and games through Google Play,” Three UK notes.
“This great tablet also comes preloaded with all your favorite Google Apps including Gmail, Chrome, Google+ and YouTube.”
The slate packs a 7-inch scratch-resistant touchscreen display, along with a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor inside, so as to offer both a great viewing experience and increased performance capabilities to all users.
Courtesy of its 3G connectivity, users can stay online wherever they are, while the battery life is meant to offer a more appealing on-the-go experience. It is capable of up to 9 hours of HD video playback, Three notes.
Furthermore, the tablet comes with a thin and light design, which fits well in the palm of users’ hands, regardless whether browsing the web, watching a movie or reading an ebook.
“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,” Sylvia Chind, head of Devices at Three, said.
Unfortunately, Three hasn’t provided specific info on when the 3G Nexus 7 would be released, or on the price tag of might feature when available. Stay tuned for more on this.
