The Google Nexus 7 tablet is set to arrive on Verizon’s LTE network this week on February 13. The “Big Red” wireless carrier announced availability status of the 2nd generation device on Monday (Feb. 10).

The 32GB black version of the Nexus 7 will be available to buy straight from Verizon online and in its retail stores for $350. Verizon is also offering the Nexus 7 for $250 with a 2-year activation, for a limited time. Accessories for the 7-inch Android tablet will also be available, including the Nexus 7 folio in black or red for $50.

When the Nexus 7 entered the market in 2013, along with it came compatibility with U.S. wireless carrier networks AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon. Things went left when Verizon began denying customers activation of the device. Of course, this did not go over well with some new Nexus 7 owners.

“Since Google was about to launch its new Kit Kat OS, rather than undertake this work, Google and Asus asked Verizon to suspend its certification process until Google's new OS was available on the Nexus 7,” Verizon said in a statement.

Customers who already own the Nexus 7 can now activate it on Verizon’s LTE network as long as they download and install the latest Android 4.4 KitKat OS update first.
