LTE-ready Nexus 7 now available on Google Play with AT&T activation kit
AT&T has announced that you can now purchase an LTE-ready Nexus 7 (2013) direct from Google Play, and an AT&T SIM activation package will be included. In addition, customers can receive a $100 AT&T bill credit if they sign up for a new two-year agreement. We saw the same thing last year with the 3G edition of the original Nexus 7, where T-Mobile and AT&T both offered bundled SIM cards and perks with a contract.
Also just like last year, you might want to think twice before signing up for two years with any carrier for your new Nexus 7. $100 may not be worth tethering yourself to 24 months of obligated service.
It's also worth noting that there is not a separate SKU for the AT&T version. They are the same tablet as the SIM-free version or the T-Mobile SIM equipped model, with the same pricing of $349.
