Google quietly added a new option to its Nexus 7 lineup on the Play device store today. You can now buy a Nexus 7 with a T-Mobile SIM card and (assuming here) radios that take advantage of T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network.
The $299 tablet compares favorably with the lower-res iPad mini which starts at $329 for Wifi only.
Previously the Nexus 7 was only available directly from Google with AT&T’s HSPA network radios but the devices are sold unlocked. T-Mobile has been a much stronger Google partner offering the Nexus 4 from launch with plans specifically geared to the Google device.
