There's a bit of a fuss going on about Verizon and the new LTE Nexus 7. It seems that people are facing some difficulty getting the device activated on the carrier, and the back-and-forth is getting even more confusing. We reached out to Verizon, who just replied with an official response. In all its brevity:
This is not yet a device that is Verizon 4G LTE certified. We’ll let folks know when it's certified.
We're not exactly sure of any further details, but we do know that the Nexus 7 seems to be working just fine for those folks who have robbed another device of its SIM card.
For now, it appears that there is no Verizon support at all for the tablet. We think that will change, and you can bet we're keeping an eye on this one.
