Just thought I would let everyone know I have placed the order for my 4G LTE Nexus 7 from o2. Although it is slightly more expensive at £319.99 compared to the google play store price of £299 (which still states: coming soon) I wanted to have the 4G version in my hands as soon as possible and the information I received a few weeks ago told me that it would be available as an exclusive to o2 until November and to be honest I couldn’t wait that long to get it from the Play Store!
The device is set to be in my hands on Friday 13th September (as long as Friday the 13th doesn’t throw in any surprises!). NOTE: If you want it like me on launch day, make sure you order by 4pm on Wednesday the 11th September.
For the £320 or so I also received a ‘free’ Official ASUS Premium Cover for the Nexus 7 and 2GB of pay & go preloaded data which is a nice touch although I am technically paying £20 more for the case and data.
After the O2 credit has expired I shall be using a free service called Samba Mobile: http://www.sambamobile.com/Home/Samba which allows you to rack up free mbs of data by watching the odd advert every now and then. The only catch per se is the fact you have to pay for the sim card everything else is free, use this code: MSE100 to get the sim card for only £1 including delivery, be quick as this code expires 11.59pm on 11th September ( I will post an article with full details on the Samba Mobile Broadband Service very soon)
Stay tuned for a full review on the device, the Asus Premium cover, speed tests on the O2 network and more information on Samba Mobile.
