The Nexus7 is a great device, I use it 90% more than my iPad3 or my Galaxy Nexus. I will certainly be buying the 3G model next week. And I could care less if its 3G instead of 4G. I'm near WiFi most of the time anyways, and on the occasion I'm not 3G will do the job just fine. I wouldn't stream media over 3G anyways, due to Data limits. 3G is fast enough to pull up a website for a quick read, or do a google search. Video Chat works just fine on my Galaxy Nexus, and its 3G.
So all you people crying over the fact that its not 4G, get over it... It's meant to be a secondary device, not a primary. If its that big of a deal, spend $50 less and get the Wifi version and tether it to your 4G phone (Which most of you probably don't have anyways) or spend the extra $50 (its pocket change) and get the 3G model and have service anywhere you go.
arif, 06 Nov 2012is it possible to change mini sim into micro sim????Yes, there are adapters and cutters available on ebay.
Very very poor pricing by Asus like Apple. 199$ trasnlated to INR,19990
arif, 06 Nov 2012is it possible to change mini sim into micro sim????yes . already available micro sim in some countries in USA for exemple!
In fact the nexus 7 3g has got a mini sim card which they describe as open
It's on the side of the tablet and A bit fragile to install
abhijit, 02 Nov 2012does the nexus support dongles for connectivity???? In theory yes, in practice no. Maybe with an altered rom on device, it may support. This function seems locked out as usb otg is not supported in software.
In review they said it has host USB port for mice and keyboard, this device may help connect internet dongle through this port. If this port can only power up my plug n ply USB winger, I will be connected to internet.... I would rather prefer any hands on user or developer reply on query. Cheers :-)

Faiq, 30 Oct 2012Awesome,,Nexus 32GB is coming maybe next month..hopefully Asus Malaysia wont increase the pric... moreIf you mostly access to wifi, go for Nexus 7, but iPad supports sim slot, so it is a huge advantage for modern world. If Nexus 7 3G will be available soon, you should wait for it. Nexus with Sim slot is better than iPad for almost everything.

The nexus 7 with 3g connectivity is coming on the end of 2012, hope the gsm voice call is available~
