Google Nexus 7 2 with 4G now available in UK

Google has launched the 4G version of the Google Nexus 7 2 here in the UK, alongside Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Japan, Korea and Spain.

The Google Nexus 7 2 with LTE network support only shipped in the US last week, but it's made the switch to other major territories surprisingly quickly. The Wi-Fi-only iteration took a month to make a similar leap across the Atlantic.

Opting for the Google Nexus 7 2 with 4G gets you a top of the range model. It only comes with the maximum 32GB of storage - there's no 16GB option, unlike the aforementioned Wi-Fi model.

The key selling point, of course, is that you can connect to the 4G LTE networks that are spreading throughout the UK. The device is unlocked, so you'll be able to use it on any of the UK operators currently offering the next generation network service - so EE, Vodafone or O2.

The price for this 4G Nexus 7 is £299 through the Google Play Store.The company is also offering free delivery for a limited time, and shipping times are estimated at just one to two days.

Other than 4G, this is the same Google Nexus 7 2 that we praised in our review. It features a class-leading 7-inch display with a stunning 1920 x 1200 resolution. All those pixels are pushed by a Snapdragon S4Pro quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, which is backed by 2GB of RAM.

There's a (slightly iffy) 5-megapixel camera around back, and of course the Nexus 7 2 runs on the latest version of the Android OS, 4.3 Jelly Bean, so it all runs buttery smooth.

On the specification it says LTE: 700/850/1700/1800/1900/2100 MHz, meaning that you will only be able to have LTE if you use EE or (in the future) 3 mobile and then only where they have 1800 coverage, Vodafone and O2 are a no go for LTE on the Nexus 7 as it neither supports 800 or 2600 MHz.

You are reading the North America Spec.
The Europe spec covers LTE: 800/850/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600 MHz (Bands: 1/2/3/4/5/7/20)

So Vodaphone and O2 should be fine
