There is no fury like that of an owner of a shiny new piece of equipment who can’t actually use it. Such was the case with the universally compatible* LTE equipped Nexus 7 tablets that Google release before the holidays. Sporting all bands, it could have technically worked across all carriers. Alas, that didn’t stop Verizon from blocking them on it’s network until AFTER it had released it’s own shitty budget tablet at $250 (The Ellipsis 7, aka the Epileptic).

But fear not owners – if you’d already purchased on, it can now be activated after a painless software upgrade. How’s that WiFi been working for you for the past 4 months?

Verizon (finally!) gets its Nexus 7 tablet on Feb. 13 | Android Central.
