Remember that nifty multi-carrier LTE version of the Nexus 7 that was shown off when the tablet was revealed last month? Google has been mum on a specific release date for that version, but United Kingdom carrier O2 is more than willing to chat it up. According to both a tweet from the official 02 account and a short blog post, the "4G" Nexus 7 will hit the UK on September 13th.

Verizon got the jump on everyone with LTE, but AT&T has been doing its best to catch up. The carrier's newly announced upgrade plans should get it a fair way toward that goal. Ma Bell is flipping the switch on 5 new LTE markets and 8 expansions this very day, but the rate of the rollout is going to pick up for the rest of the year. AT&T plans to launch at least 50 new markets before January 1st.

Yes, it has finally happened. Verizon Wireless, fashionably late to the party, has let slip the date you can swing by and get the HTC One. The big day is August 22nd, and the phone will cost $199.99 with a 2-year contract. The device will be available online and in stores on that date.

C Spire has simultaneously announced and started selling the HTC One today for $199 on-contract. The Mississippi-based carrier is the eighth-place wireless company in the US, but has still managed to start offering the HTC One before Verizon.

There's nothing unexpected about the HTC One on C-Spire. It's the same phone from other carriers, but it looks like the 32GB silver version is the only option. C Spire has a smallish 4G LTE footprint mostly in Mississippi, Florida, the southern Midwest, and parts of Georgia.

Maybe you've been itching to drop $349 on the LTE-equipped Nexus 7, but Google just won't take your filthy money. A Nexus buyer in China seems to have gotten one without even trying. A user of the online community Baidu Tieba who goes by "crazyfreely" recently posted that he spent 2,030 yuan (about $331) expecting to get the new WiFi-only Nexus 7. What he actually received appears to be the LTE version of the device.

The Verizon Moto X page just went live yesterday, and now the HTC One has broken cover as well. As usual, you can insert your email if you would like the "latest information" on the HTC One from Verizon. That's probably a lie, but still your call.

This appears to be the same HTC One from other carriers, but Verizon did manage to get its name and the LTE logo stamped on the back (the Moto X only has the Verizon part of the logo).

Update: Well, it seems someone at Google was a bit confused, as LTE has been added back to the European specification of the new Nexus 7, including band 20. Crisis averted.

The last generation of Nexus devices was stuck with HSPA+ mobile data, but with the new N7 Google has stepped into the 4G world. However, it seems like that world may be smaller than we previously thought. The specification page for the Nexus 7 has been tweaked to remove LTE bands from the European version, leaving it with only HSPA+.

If you're one of the lucky few with a T-Mobile-branded Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, there's an update headed your way. It's based on Android 4.1.2, just like the last one was, but it adds one notable new feature: LTE. Yes, the tablet's latent LTE radio has been enabled with this update.

The new version of the software is starting to hit devices today, but mashing the update button won't help. It's going to be arriving in waves until all tablets have gotten the notification around July 19th.
