Google Nexus 7 3G variant confirmed

Asus has announced a new variant of the hugely successful Android Nexus 7 tablet, which has 32GB of storage and 3G connectivity

A new version of the UK's biggest selling tablet - and coincidentally, the T3 Award winner for 2012's Best Gadget - is about to appear. Asus have confirmed a new Nexus 7 tablet will launch today with 32GB of storage and 3G connectivity, for the relatively cheap recommended retail price of 199.

Rumours of the existence of this tablet, powered by the Google Android OS, had featured heavily ahead of Google's planned launch event in New York, which has been cancelled due to the arrival of Hurricane Sandy on the US Eastern seaboard.
