Google's 32GB LTE and wi-fi Nexus 7 from Asus is now available in the UK, Germany, Spain and France.

The launch of the 32GB LTE model Nexus 7 this week follows the late August release of the 16GB and 32GB wi-fi-only version in the same European markets, available in the UK for £199 for the 16GB model or £239 for the 32GB, or €229 and €269 for the same devices in Europe. 

The LTE version, available today on Google Play, will set customers back in the UK £299 ($476), making it a £60 premium on the 32GB wi-fi only edition. The Nexus comes in well under Apple's iPad mini with 4G connectivity, which costs £449 in the UK.

Mobile operator O2 has also been taking pre-orders on the LTE Nexus in the UK, which it's been selling for £319.99 with a SIM and 2GB of free 3G data, although 4G for tablets on its network won't be available until later this year.

For the three other European countries to get the tablet, the 32GB LTE Nexus 7 is on sale for €349 ($466). Check out ZDNet's review for a full run down of new features. 

In Europe, the Nexus 7 supports LTE networks using 800, 850, 1700, 1800, 1900, 2100, 2600MHz spectrum bands.

The LTE Nexus 7 is also available in the US, Canada and Australia. As usual, prices are lower in the US, where the device is available for $349, while Australians are being asked to pay AUD$439 ($411).
