Building on the success of the WiFi Nexus 7 model, Google is reportedly working closely with Asus to launch a 3G model of the Nexus 7 tablet.  The rumored time frame as of now stands at mid-October, which puts the 7 inch device in market right before the pivotal Holiday season.

The report surfaced courtesy of Paul O’Brien of MoDaCo, who claims the 3G tablet is only six weeks away from launch.  We’re not sure how much the device will cost and which carriers it may launch in conjunction with.  There is also no word on whether it will feature 4G LTE connectivity or just 3G.

We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any further developments regarding the 3G Nexus 7 from Asus.
