I’m struggling to get an Nexus 7 Wifi version as it was not a very good portable table without 3G service. If Nexus 7 come with 3G service, that is perfect for me and I believe it was a very encouraging news. It was kind of to have Nexus 7 ship to Malaysia and Singapore even on the Wifi version Nexus 7. According to Paul O’Brien over at MoDaCo claims that Asus is preparing a 3G-enabled variant for launch in “around six weeks,” with production already underway.
