It took a few months longer than everyone was hoping, but Verizon is finally supporting the 2013 Nexus 7. Big Red is even selling the device, if you don't want to get it from Google Play for some reason. However, the pricing isn't awesome. Verizon wants $249.99 for the Nexus 7 with a 2-year contract.

The off-contract price of the LTE Nexus 7 is $349.99, which is the same as the Google price.

Six months and nineteen days. It's been exactly that long since Hugo Barra announced the new Nexus 7 in a press conference, including an unlocked LTE model that works with Verizon 4G bands. It's been almost five months since that particular model went on sale, and about as long since eager users found out that they couldn't activate a new Verizon Wireless account with the tablet, which wasn't included in Verizon's device database.

The big US carriers are currently falling all over themselves to tweak their plan offerings to be more competitive with each other. After changing the upgrade window of its Edge plans last month, Verizon is now preparing to offer more data on some plans, reduced prices for Edge customers, and more.

After such a long wait, the Nexus 7 is finally ready to make its Verizon Wireless debut. For the better part of a year now, Google has offered an affordable tablet with cellular radios tucked away inside that the US's largest carrier refused to activate (granted, there were ways to get around this). But now, the Big Red and the Nexus 7 are cuddling up just in time for Valentine's Day.

Remember when we reported that T-Mobile was suing AT&T because the marketing for the Aio budget carrier used a shade of purple that was too close to T-Mobile's (literally) trademark magenta? Yes, that is a thing that happened. And apparently at least one Texas judge thought it was a valid complaint, because a federal court has ruled that Aio did, in fact, infringe on T-Mobile's corporate trademark.

Here's the PR statement that T-Mobile issued after the ruling:

Federal Court Rules that AT&T was Infringing on T-Mobile's Magenta Trademark Color and Orders an Injunction

A federal court has halted AT&T's transparent effort to infringe on T-Mobile's distinctive magenta trademark.

AT&T's prepaid offering Aio Wireless is a nice way to access the carrier's network without having to make an expensive two-year commitment. Now the carrier has announced the availability of two additional Android phones. The Moto G is available for $149.99 (though it doesn't yet appear on the site). It is joined by the ZTE Sonata 4G, which goes for $79.99. The latter, while less impressive, is an Aio exclusive in the US.

Motorola Moto G - Black

The Motorola direct price on the Moto G is great, but some carriers have opted to sell the phone even cheaper in an attempt to lure customers. US Cellular is following Verizon's lead today in offering the Moto G for just $99.99 off-contract. It's live on the US Cellular website right now and will be in stores February 10th.

The Moto G is $179 from Motorola as an unlocked GSM device, so you're saving a fair amount if you don't mind sticking with USC.
