A few days ago a rumor claimed that the Nexus 7 tablet would go on sale for Verizon this week, stating the 13th of February as a possible date. That rumor has now turned out to be true, as Verizon confirmed today that the 7" Google tablet will be available for their network beginning this Thursday.
The device will retail for the same price as that of the Google Play store, with the 32GB model selling for $349.99. Users can also save $100 by signing up for a two-year contract with Verizon, while it will cost $10 to add the Nexus 7 to existing Share Everything plans. In addition, Verizon will allow users who purchased the device through Google Play to transfer over to their LTE network, though a software update will be required beforehand.
The Nexus 7 was first announced by Google back in July of last year, and Verizon has been promising a debut since then. Now Verizon users can finally get ahold of the device, but they might also have to hope that Google takes their time in announcing a successor.
