We’re not sure if Google has run out of stock, simply removed it from inventory for unspecified reasons, or is tweaking Google Play store pages, but the new 2013 Nexus 7 with LTE is now showing as “not for sale at this time.” In the past when devices have gone out of stock, Google Play will reference the reasons, which typically involves inventory levels. This statement of “not for sale” at this time, just 7 days after the device went on sale for $349, is a bit odd.
We’ll keep an eye on its status and update this post if we learn more.
Update: It’s now showing as “out of inventory” for some. Maybe Google sold through ‘em.
Update 2: It’s now back in stock.

This morning, Sprint announced that it had turned on 34 new 4G LTE markets across the country, bringing their total to 185. It’s mostly smaller markets, but you will see Sprint LTE in spots like Oklahoma City (OK), Corpus Christi (TX), Port Arthur (TX), and Salem (OR).
While this is an improvement and good news for Sprint customers, with Verizon pushing past the 500 market mark, and AT&T eclipsing 400, you can see how far Sprint has to go to compete. Even T-Mobile is lighting them up faster than we can keep track of these days. (more…)
T-Mobile updated its complete 4G LTE coverage list, flaunting that the new LTE network now covers up to 180 million POPs, a number that saw a massive spike in growth last month when their CEO flipped the switch live on stage. While T-Mobile grows at a steady pace, AT&T is almost wrapped up with its rollout, though. (more…)
Straight Talk, one of the most popular and affordable prepaid smartphone options, now appears to support AT&T’s 4G LTE. At $45 per month for unlimited talk, text, and data, this is now an incredibly interesting choice if carriers, subsidies, and contracts are not something you ever want to see again in your life.

AT&T announced a few new 4G LTE markets this morning, spanning from North Carolina to Utah. In total, there are 14 new markets, as AT&T is pushing hard to apparently finish its LTE rollout as soon as possible. According to AT&T, they have invested almost $100 billion into the network across the country, with even more planned on being poured in by the end of 2015. To see the full list of new markets, look below. (more…)
Verizon takes its network quite seriously – from the countless millions of dollars invested into the network’s infrastructure, to the money spent on marketing, making sure Americans know that it is the country’s “most reliable” network. This week, to Verizon’s joy, J.D. Power published its semi-annual findings that ranks America’s top mobile network providers. Unsurprisingly, Verizon ranked highest in all categories across all six U.S. regions, with only one tie taking place in the North Central region. (more…)
AT&T announced a new batch of 4G LTE markets this morning, highlighted by a couple of large cities such as Milwaukee, WI and Springfield, OH. If you are on AT&T and have a device capable of connecting to the network, then you should be seeing some much-improved speeds this week. The full list of new markets can be viewed below. (more…)
Last week, we reported on a new Verizon special called Verizon Max that was going to launch for a limited time on August 25 for unlimited data customers who want to participate in Verizon Edge, the upgrade-often, month-to-month plan that went live yesterday. The deal, which Verizon hasn’t exactly announced or promoted publicly, is live as expected for those with unlimited data. (more…)
