Three UK has announced that it's begun stocking the 3G/HSPA version of Google's Nexus 7. The ASUS-made 7-inch tablet will be available from today at Three retail stores and the network's website -- although the device isn't anywhere to be found on Three's site at the time of writing.

Three says it'll sell the 3G Nexus 7 for an up-front fee of £49.99 on a £19.99 per month contract, which includes a 5GB monthly data allowance. Spec-wise, you're looking at the same Nexus 7 we've known since June -- stock Jelly Bean on a 7-inch display, with 32GB of storage.

The 3G Nexus 7 has proved successful in the short time it's been available. The device was briefly sold out on the UK Google Play Store before more stock arrived this Monday.

I've rang Three, tried getting hold of one, but the release is now held back until tomorrow (Friday 30th November).

Also the deal isn't £19.99 for 5gb, but is £19.99 for 15gb per month. Not sure on contract duration, but probably 18 or 24 month. £49.99 upfront fee is correct.

The data allowances may be generous but not essential for most. The cost of these devices over the 2 year period of the contract just doesn't make sense, but havaing said that it nay do for some.

I have got hold of a Data only Micro SIM from 3 with 3Gb of data valid for 90 days, I will see how long this lasts before I consider what data allowances I need for the future and if you shop wisely these can be picked up from between £10-20

These devices seem to be in short supply everywhere at the moment. Just contacted Three enquiring about the prices.

These are 24 month contracts

£25 per month and tablet price of £49 total £649

or

£29 per month and tablet price of £29 total £725

Sorry if I'm missing the point but you can by directly from Google at a one of cost of £239 with something like a SIM only data card on a 30 day rolling contract starting at £7.50 per month available from most of the carriers these days

This would add up to a more palatable £419 over the same 2 year period.

For this reason I'm out.

Google can I have 1 Nexus 7 3G please
