You love posting articles don't you? If this is true, I would love to get one, I'm getting a little tired of my Asus Transformer Prime. I would love a Nexus 7.

Now called the Nexus 7+ (?), the LTE variant appears to have hit the FCC OET late this week.  3GPP only.  LTE bands 2/4/5/13/17.  Nothing for Sprint.

It's interesting that band 13 is included. Verizon is the only carrier using that band anywhere, right? Is Canada planning on auctioning that spectrum soon?

Yes. Band 13 being included is likely because Verizon Wireless has a mandate imposed on it to allow any device supporting Band 13 to operate on its network. Google doesn't have to do anything with Verizon Wireless to release such a tablet.

Would Sprint allow any devices that connect via LTE over either bands 25 or 26 in the future?

I'm doubtful. Despite how "generous" it is, it's hardly a bastion for BYOD. It would require some serious changes for Sprint to be comfortable with BYOD.

So this looks awesome and I will be ordering one almost immediately since I gave my girls son my Nexus 7 a while back. I just wish they cancelled the cameras and put the Snapdragon 800 chip in it, but I'm sure it will be awesome either way.

I think I might buy this to replace my Asus Transformer. I've had it for more than two years and I think this may be a good time to upgrade. For the price, the specs sound good and I'd probably sell my TF to help defray some of the cost.

If it were the Nexus 8 with a 8 in screen I would be ecstatic but since its a Nexus 7, I'll pass.  7 in tablet is too small.  The screen size of the ipad mini is just perfect.

I want a nexus 7 with standard cell phone capabilities, worldwide 3g, tri-band LTE, and WIMAX for good measure.

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
