Verizon has repeatedly promised that it would officially support the Nexus 7 on its LTE network, only to fall short each time. However, it now seems that a launch really is close at hand -- a Droid-Life tipster has revealed that a Big Red-approved Android tablet is making its way into Verizon stores, complete with the carrier's logo on the box. While staffers can't sell the Nexus 7 just yet, the arrival supports rumors that the device would be available on February 13th. It's coming too late for anyone content to use the regular LTE model, but it could be handy as a last-minute Valentine's gift for the tablet lover in your life.
