3G-enabled ASUS Google Nexus 7 swings through FCC
Google is widely expected to announce a variety of new products on Monday, October 29, the day on which the search and mobile operating system giant is holding an event. Aside from a brand-new Nexus device from LG – and a new version of Android Jelly Bean to go along with it – Google is expected to slightly refresh the ASUS Google Nexus 7 tablet, too.
According to the rumors that are currently going through the mill, Google will give the $200 Nexus 7 16GB of storage, with the $250 model also being doubled in capacity from 16GB to 32GB. More interesting, however, is an FCC filing that was released today, which is allegedly for a 3G radios-equipped Nexus model.
The model number for this ASUS-produced tablet is ME370TG. Of course, the currently WiFi-only Nexus 7’s model number is ME370T – and according to the FCC, the addition of the ‘G’ makes this tablet a cellular model.
Should the rumors about updated Nexus 7 models come true (which likely will, given the timing of this filing and the event next Monday) then Google will really be able to pit its 7-inch tablet offering against Apple’s, which the former company announced just this week.
Naturally, pricing and availability isn’t included in any FCC filing, but luckily we’re only a few days away from Google’s announcement, anyway. Are you excited?[FCC via The Digital Reader | Liliputing]
