As the the title suggests, I think that it would help make things less cluttered. Just a Nexus 7 LTE (2013) Android Development subforum, not a complete new device forum. Btw, I still don't understand the difference between Development and Original Development, so please comment if you do understand and do think that we need them both for LTE version.

I already suggested this to forum mod MikeChannon, he said they would consider it.
Thinking that the earlier we get it the less effort, problems and trouble it creates I am now putting up this poll.

That would be a good idea. And you can read about it here http://www.xda-developers.com/android/introducing-original-development-forums-for-more-devices/

Nexus 7 LTE different

The Nexus 7 LTE is different from Nexus Wi-Fi similarly how the predecessor Nexus 7 Mobile is different from the Wi-Fi model.

However, in the US, the LTE will run on the top-3: AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile, and in multiple modes, so expect lots of questions about APNs, plans and such.

Another area of confusion will be the various VoIP clients people will use, like Talkatone, Sipdroid, CSipSimple.

I am not sure how it affects the forum disposition, but if you thought you didn't have enough impossible problems before, get yourself a shiny Nexus 7 LTE... There's a reason for it being late.

not sure what you are implying here, but i have one for almost a week now, it is awesome, and it is flawless. even stock 4.3 rooted is not that bad, i would like to have some options though.

It's been announced that all operator versions will be identical (ATT, Sprint, Verizon, etc.). That is something different from the previous N7. So maybe, just maybe someone should try ROM compatibility with Flo (Wifi). If that works out (minus LTE hardware drivers) we won't need a separate forum. And the development would be much better in total as a result of having way more devices....it'd be cool to pick a WiFi rom and flash it on an LTE, and then just flash the LTE module...oh the possibilities....

i tried different flo images on my deb n7 and it doesn't work. it's not booting, it gets stuck at the x. only way to make it work again was flashing an deb image again. so i think a sub forum for deb would be nice

Nexus 7 LTE

I am referring to the Nexus 7 LTE having a seven-band LTE radio. It's the first device anytime, anywhere I know of to have such a complex radio.

I am also referring to the enormous possibilities this offers Nexus 7 LTE owners, which will compel them to try things never tried before. Take the tinkering with a Galaxy Nexus. Now triple it.

Apparently the Nexus 7 LTE went on sale over-the-counter in Germany and Australia on 8/29:
Asutralia: http://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/114844
Germany: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iZ0iXzQNckI

Note that there are two versions with different LTE bands.

Good idea. Otherwise, I'll need to constantly remind myself to be mindful if the ROM or update is for the wifi only, or LTE.

Otherwise, another possible option would be to append the beginning of each post with a [WIFI] , [LTE] or [GENERIC] depending on which flavour it belongs to.

Actually, you can find this device in Europe (Germany and Italy, maybe Poland or Romania but I'm not sure).
And we wait soon this version in UK and France nearly.

And it's my next device ;)

And as you know you can request to open this subforum as N7 3G here: *** New Device Forum Requests *** ;)

Forum for the device is already created, we just need a subforum for LTE version, pretty basic considering the old model got one as well! Why they didn't create it at the start is a mystery to me.

Sorry, but you have not understood what I meant or I misspoke.
I meant that it would be better to use the normal way to request the opening of a sub-forum in the thread provided for it => *** New Device Forum Requests ***
I know that the forum, for this device, has been created and we have use the normal way to open a sub-forum for the N7 3G.
I know that the admins will open a sub-forum 2013 N7 for LTE very soon. Don't be afraid ;)

thanks for the hint. so basically the (not-original) development forums are the useless ones, that could as well be deleted all together. or stuff that is OK and useful, but on an arbitrary scale not "original" enough.

so basically i have to look in both subforums all the time to find something interesting. way to go, xda. and i thought they were back on a better path...

    Thanks Admins ;)

    Yeah, good idea. The old Nexus 7 has a dedicated sub-forum for the 3G version too. It makes finding stuff much easier.

    well, i guess this means searching for us LTE owners then... :(

    I got an LTE model in Europe on 2 Sept, and I really would like to have a sub-forum, since browsing the normal one and trying to find stuff for the LTE one is just driving me crazy.
