Unlocked Nexus 7 3G tablet coming to Japan



This will be just perfect with a prepaid data SIM. The 32 GB Nexus 7 3G version will be on sale in Japan from 2/9 at major electronic stores for ¥29,800. That is by far the best deal in Japan for a 3G tablet. It uses a micro SIM card.

List of b-mobile SIMs here.

This would also be perfect for Ingress.

  3. But since it's not a docomo branded device, you can't use the docomo 3G pakehodai plans, right? :(

  4. Actually, the data-only SIMs connect to mopera APN and aren't IMEI filtered. Only the voice+data (smartphone) sims are). So you could use this with a FOMA data contract I think.


    Unless something has changed recently, that is.


    And, yes, I realize that makes no sense.

  5. I hope that this is the beginning a sim free market in Japan besides the shops under Yamanote Line in Akihabara or on Amazon.jp

  6. Obtained at Yodobashi Akiba. Bic Yurakucho had signs out but no display model or stock.

  7. So you're saying if I choose the 9975/month data-only docomo plan (below) then I can use any non-docomo device with the open.mopera.net APN? That's perfect for the N7!

  10. I didn't buy it but I see no reason why is shouldn't work w/o SIM...

    If your worried about cost... Try Serversman DTI Sim.. It runs on the DOCOMO network and costs 525 yen
