Europe to get its own LTE-enabled Nexus 7

If you watched Google's San Francisco presentation today and felt a little left out when only U.S. carrier support was mentioned for the new Nexus 7, fear not. Google's official spec sheet for the upcoming 7-inch tablet confirms that a European LTE-compatible SKU will be offered, with support for a whopping seven bands.

The spec sheet shows support for 800, 850, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2100 and 2600 MHz in Europe — that's bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 20. That septa-band LTE support means you're well-equipped to use any current or future 4G networks in Europe. In addition, you've got HSPA+ on travel-friendly 850, 900, 1900 and 2100 MHz bands, as well as AWS (1700/2100).

The U.S. model, of course, comes with unlocked Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile LTE support.
