    Default N7 2013 LTE -- global hardware versions, LTE compatibility

    Dear all,

    I'm new here, long time IOS user who is thinking about switching to Android for price-performance reasons.

    I will be in the US soon, but I live in Northern Europe. While I'm in the US, I was thinking about buying a Nexus 7 LTE version because it is significantly cheaper in the US compared to home.

    But ... are there different hardware editions of the N7 LTE for different world markets? Can I be sure the a US N7 LTE will work with the networks back home, and will get OTA Android updates (my carriers isn't locking anything down, it is a question about Googles hardware editions and policies)?

    And as a follow up question, which nationwide retail stores generally stock the N7 LTE in their shops?

    Thank you very much

    I found this...http://www.bestbuy.com/site/google-nexus-7-lte-32gb-unlocked-black/1846014.p?id=1219065990469&skuId=1846014&st=categoryid$pcmcat209000050006&cp=1&lp=4&contract_desc=

    There are also wifi devices for sale in many places.

    As for where to get the wifi ones, Best Buy like in the link above, WalMart, Target, etc.

    @Golfdriver97 thank you very much, that's a good find, thanks!

    Anyone on the hardware versions -- are US N7 LTE's the same as EU ones, or are the differences in for example the radios used?

    I found the specs: Google Nexus 7 (2013) specs
    Now it depends on what your carrier uses.
