While you still can’t put the Nexus 7 on Verizon, you can now pick up their new 7″ inch tablet for $250 off-contract. The device, of course, houses connectivity to both Verizon’s 3G and 4G LTE networks along with some underwhelming specs. The device brings a 1280×800 LCD screen, 8GB of storage (expandable via microSD), a quad-core processor of unknown origin, 1GB of RAM, 4,000 mAh battery, and a 3.2 MP camera. Surprisingly the device runs a relatively unchanged Android 4.2.2 but of course includes Verizon’s selection of bloatware apps. The device will include partner apps such as iHeartRadio, Amazon, Redbox, and what Verizon device would be complete without VZ Navigator. One nice addition to the tablet are the front-facing speakers similar to that of the Nexus 10.
If it wasn’t for the great speeds of Verizon’s network (and those awesome apps), most people wouldn’t give this tablet a glance. Verizon will also be selling some official accessories for the device including a custom-fit ruggedized case and a Zaggskeys Bluetooth keyboard case. You can pick up the tablet now from Verizon’s website or in-store soon.
