Nexus 7

O2 has announced that it'll offer the LTE-capable version of the new Nexus 7 on its newly-launched 4G network, with a release scheduled for Sept. 13. The tablet will cost £319.99, and is available for pre-order now on "Pay As You Go" 4G plans, which come with 2GB of data to get you started. Pre-order customers will also get the official premium case, worth £29.99.

"O2 will be the only place to sell the 4G-Ready Nexus 7 at launch," the carrier says, suggesting some kind of timed exclusivity deal is in place. It's unclear whether this means Brits will be unable to get hold of an unlocked 4G Nexus 7 from the Google Play Store on the same day; at the very least it means rivals Vodafone and EE won't be selling the tablet at launch.

O2 is also selling the Wifi-only Nexus 7 with 32GB of storage, priced at £249.99. Elsewhere, there's still no firm date set for the launch of the 4G Nexus 7 in the U.S. or other territories.
