LG's flagship tablet (and currently the company's only one) is certainly making headlines today. Just this morning we saw an impressive $100 off deal for the WiFi version, and now it looks like there's a carrier variant in the works. The reliable Evleaks posted photos of a G Pad 8.3 with Verizon's telltale branding, indicating that the tablet will be coming to Big Red sometime in the future.

The leak yesterday seems to have been right on the money – Verizon's More Everything plans are now available with higher data caps and lower prices for Edge subscribers. All plans include unlimited voice and text, but your options are a bit limited with tablets.

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.
