One of the hottest Android devices these days, the Nexus 7 tablet is about to make its debut at T-Mobile USA. In fact, the slate will be available for T-Mobile customers exclusively through the Google Play store.

According to TmoNews, Google and T-Mobile will announce the immediate availability of the Nexus 7 on November 13. The Nexus 7 with HSPA+ will be available via Google Play store for $300/ €235.

This coincides with Verizon/HTC event held in New York City where the companies are expected to announce the upcoming availability of the HTC DROID DNA.

Back on Nexus 7, the slate will come with HSPA+ (21Mbps) support, so T-Mobile customers will be able to take advantage of blazing fast data speeds.

Given the fact the tablet won’t be sold through T-Mobile online and retail stores, potential customers must sign up on Google’s Play Store if they want to be notified when the Nexus 7 arrives in stock.

The Nexus 7 will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box and a vibrant 7.0-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (1280 x 800 pixels) resolution.

According to Google, “Nexus 7 was built to bring customers the best tablet experience.” The Nexus 7 provides access to more than 700,000 apps and games via Google Play store and comes packed with Google’s full suite of services and apps, including Gtalk, YouTube, Search and Maps.

Hardware-wise, the Nexus 7 is pretty impressive and comes equipped with a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, which is complemented by a ULP GeForce graphics processing unit and 1GB of RAM.

Other highlights of the slate include: 1.2-megapixel front camera, NFC (Near Field Communication) technology, 4325 Li-Ion battery, 32GB storage and Wi-Fi connectivity. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
