Follows recent introduction of Nexus 10 to Play store

Google has started to sell the 3G-enabled version of the Nexus 7 in Japan, alongside the existing Wi-Fi models. The Wi-Fi + 3G Android tablet, with 32GB of storage and support for W-CDMA and HSPA+, has gone on sale a few days after it's 10-inch counterpart, the Nexus 10, reached the same regional Google Play store.

As is found in other versions of the Nexus 7 with access to mobile phone networks, the Nexus 7 with 3G has an extra slot for a microSIM card, and is able to connect on 850,900,1700,1900, and 2100MHz bands. The Google Play store has it on sale for 29,800 yen ($318), according to Impress Watch.

Previously unavailable in Japan, the Nexus 10 brings with it a larger display and form factor than the Nexus 7, though is available with Wi-Fi only, as opposed to having 3G connectivity, reports Android Community. Both 16GB and 32GB variants are available to purchase, for 36,800 yen ($395) and 44,800 yen ($480) respectively, but potential customers will have to wait until more stock arrives in-store.
