T-Mobile has been teasing the upcoming availability of the Nexus 7 on Twitter lately. They weren’t offering much in terms of hints, and the tweets were simply offering a coming soon message. But that being said, the carrier has opened up pre-orders. And while this is the same Nexus 7 that is already available by way of the Google Play Store, T-Mobile does have a potential perk.
Basically, instead of grabbing the tablet for $349, T-Mobile will let you get it with no money down. T-Mobile has the full retail price listed as begin $384, which means you will be paying a bit extra if you go this route, but again, they have it with a no money down option. Those going that route will then have 24 monthly payments of $16.
Basically, in the end you will be paying an additional $35. And at this time, the Nexus 7 pre-order listing on the T-Mobile site shows a shipping date of November 20th. Coincidentally, that is the same day the Nexus 5 is expected to arrive with T-Mobile. But remember, the Nexus 5 date is still unconfirmed at this time.
Back to the Nexus 7, regardless of which path you choose to make a purchase, the hardware of the tablet remains the same. The Nexus 7 has a 7-inch (1920 x 1200 and 323 ppi) display, Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 3950 mAh battery, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear-facing camera.
