I too am impatiently waiting. What time do these things normally appear in the play store? Midnight (and in what time zone), morning?

I'm sure Phandroid will post when they're available. I'm sure the Nexus 4, 10, and new 7s will all launch simultaneously.

I already have an HSPA tablet, but I'll still be watching for reviews. Three hundred bucks is a lot just to get a compatible charger with my phone.

Better question - will this device ever be sold in stores like the other versions? I don't like the idea of paying for shipping on top of tax AND waiting. Now I could live with a 32GB wifi version, but I would jump at the 3g model ONLY IF retailers got a hold of it.

And another thing. The Google Play description specifically mentions AT&T as the 3g carrier. Does that mean mobile data is ONLY provided through AT&T and does that mean T-Mobile is excluded? That'll be a HUGE dealbreaker...

The way I read it, it will be shipped unlocked but they are including an AT&T sim card with it. Thus you should be able to get a sim from the carrier of your choice and use it

"Nexus 7 comes with AT&T mobile broadband built right in, so you can browse the web or check e-mail on the go, even when you aren’t near a WiFi hotspot. Download large files in a snap and access your favorite websites with amazing speed -- with AT&T we’ve got you covered.
More options with AT&T DataConnect.
With AT&T DataConnect, choose prepaid or postpaid plans with no long-term contract. Or you can take advantage of AT&T Mobile Share plans, which lets you share data on up to 10 devices -- smartphones, tablets and laptops and more**."

Copied directly from Google Play. They seem to be pushing AT&T pretty hard and don't seem to mention "GSM Unlocked" anywhere in that description. Furthermore...



The product listing specifically shows an AT&T logo underneath the HSPA+ sign. Why do this if its TRULY unlocked? I'm starting to have my doubts...
