Verizon Expects New Nexus 7 To Get Certified For Its LTE Network At Some Point, No Timeframe Just Yet

Earlier today we reported that Verizon is currently denying owners of the Nexus 7 2013 LTE model the ability to access new data lines on the company's network. We reached out to a Verizon representative for comment, and here's what we got back:

This is not yet a device that is Verizon 4G LTE certified. We’ll let folks know when its certified.

Since that's a little on the vague side we requested some clarification, and received the following additional response.

[Hands-On] Are Dynamic Keyboard's Big Keys A Big Deal?

Last week the video demo of Dynamic Keyboard got quite a lot of attention. It shows a keyboard with bouncy keys that actually changed size in anticipation of the next letter in the word. So many keyboards strive to offer better suggestions in the bar above the keyboard, but this is an app which wants to do more with the data.

Verizon Won't Activate New LTE SIM Cards For The Nexus 7 LTE: 'Not All LTE Tablets Are Created Equal'

Update: Verizon has responded to our inquiry about the Nexus 7 LTE registration issues. A company representative said that the Nexus 7 LTE would be certified for the Verizon network at some point.

Of course, it could take any amount of time for Verizon to certify a new, unlocked device for their network (and Verizon isn't exactly known for speedy response when it comes to devices and software).

doubleTwist Teases Tablet UI For An Upcoming Version Of Its Popular Android Music Player

doubleTwist is one of the most popular music players available for Android, and it's a rather attractive one to boot. It has large, finger-friendly icons, the standard grid-interface for browsing albums, and an overall dark theme that's easy on the eyes. Unfortunately, this look starts to fall apart when you fire up the app on a tablet, as it suffers from stretched-out-phone-UI syndrome. It's a disease that can afflict even the best Android apps, but doubleTwist has teased a new version of the app that has been completely cured.

Earlier today, Google announced that the new LTE Nexus 7 was now available for purchase from the Play Stores in 9 countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, UK, Japan, Korea and U.S. For some reason, the company has neglected to mention Italy, which just got the Devices (Dispositivi) section added to the Play Store for the first time ever.

The only devices available at the moment are all three flavors of the Nexus 7:

The Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 are nowhere to be found, which isn't too surprising considering they're now almost a year old.

The US version is available with AT&T and T-Mobile SIMs, but as some have suspected, Verizon SIMs remain MIA, and may for the foreseeable future.
