Google finally released their brand new and impressive 2013 Nexus 7 to the Google Play Store with the option for 4G LTE, after over a month of WiFi only sales.

Google Play Store. Well, the Nexus 10 tablet is at least. The Nexus 4 is still hard to catch, although it arrived earlier this week at Best Buy and T-Mobile stores. Yesterday the Nexus 10 returned to "in stock" and we urge you to snag one now before they're all gone.
