Google Nexus 7 to get 3G?

Upgraded tablet could be with us in six weeks

Google's cut-price Nexus 7 could be in line for the 3G treatment after rumours surfaced that Asus is manufacturing a mobile-enhanced version of the tablet

The Google Nexus 7 won plenty of support by stripping certain features and concentrating on power and value. After all, bagging a Tegra 3-powered tablet running Jelly Bean for £200 isn't to be sniffed at.

But what you give up in return was storage space, a rear-facing camera and, crucially, no 3G support. That last part looks set to change though.

According to a "well placed insider" speaking to MoDaCo, manufacturer Asus are working on a new model of the tablet that will boast 3G compatability.

No other hardware changes are expected, although we'll almost certainly see a steeper price tag.

The source speculates that this new version could be with us in just six weeks - just in time for inclusion on the Christmas list.

So far, Asus has refused to comment.
