Play Store now offering T-Mobile SIM cards with Nexus 7 purchase

If were interested in getting a 3G-enabled Nexus 7 from the Google Play Store but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of getting your SIM card and service setup at a separate time, then today’s news should delight most of you. Well… not as much as if you were waiting on the Nexus 4 to get in stock, but it’s delightful news nonetheless.

T-Mobile has announced that its SIM cards can now be bundled with a 3G Nexus 7 when they’re purchased from the Google Play Store. The SIM card doesn’t cost you anything extra to add so there should be no qualms at the point of sale. You’ll be able to enjoy HSPA+ speeds where available, and T-Mobile offers some pretty reasonable data packages for those craving data on the go.

No contract plans come in 300MB, 1.5GB, 3.5GB and 5GB flavors for $15, $25, $35 and $50 per month respectively. Head to T-Mobile.com or your nearest T-Mobile store to see how you can load up on these plans, and if you decide they work out better for you than AT&T’s options then grab one of these convenient combos for yourself in the Google Play Store.

    T-Mobile would be the better choice for data at that speed.

    If it does hspa+ 42 then Tmobile is the only way to go.

    Considering they sell the SIM card for like $0.99 most of the time I see no reason why it should add to the price. Glad to see this tho.
