T-Mobile Specific Nexus 7 Arrives in Google Play Store for $299

tmo nexus 7

Up until today, Google was selling their HSPA+ Nexus 7 with an AT&T SIM card, so that users who bought the device could quickly get it connected to AT&T’s network and use it on the go. The AT&T pairing was a bit surprising at first, since the device is actually “unlocked.” After all, T-Mobile also has an HSPA+ network here in the U.S. and wasn’t mentioned anywhere near the device. Well, until now. 

As of this afternoon (or some time recently), Google added a new page for the Nexus 7, pairing the HSPA+ version with T-Mobile as well. It’s the same 32GB unlocked version only it comes with a T-Mobile SIM. So just as with the AT&T version, you can open your tablet the minute it arrives on your doorstep and connect to an HSPA+ network.

  • The only difference is that it saves you the 7 bucks you’d have to pay to get a TMO sim card. I guess that’s better than nothing.

      $7? I only paid $0.99 plus tax when I ordered my T-Mobile microSIM on their website. It even came with a $3.34 credit so I actually made a profit of $2.27.

      • Last I looked it was $6.99, glad to know the prices are even less now.

          TMO and ATT bandwidth speeds are the same with the Nexus 7, correct? The only difference in going with TMO is a $7 savings for a SIM card? The data price plans are the same. IF this is the case why did Google release a TMO version to begin with?

            Many people are already with one carrier or the other, not to mention variable speeds depending on your particular coverage area and network congestion.

    Wonder if I can use my T-Mobile SIM from my Nexus 4 in this. That might just make it worth it.
