The first-generation Nexus 7 comes in two configurations: Wi-Fi-only ($199 or $249), and Wi-Fi with 3G HSPA+ ($299). The rumored second-gen model is expected to offer 4G LTE connectivity, an option available today with the iPad Mini for an extra $130, but not with the Kindle Fire HD.
Consumers usually opt for Wi-Fi-only tablets, to avoid another monthly cellular data bill. But the addition of 4G LTE would look good on the Nexus 7 spec sheet. And don't be surprised if Google also brings 4G to its Nexus 4 smartphone (currently 3G only) and Nexus 10 tablet (Wi-Fi only) in 2013.
