Good news Verizon customers: the 4G LTE version of the popular Google-branded, ASUS-made Nexus 7 tablet is going to hit Big Red soon, and there won't even be any kitschy Verizon logo stamped on the device.

The confirmation comes via notorious tipster @evleaks, who has supplied the technosphere with plenty of rumor mill fodder in the past. For the most part, @evleaks is on track, so expect this one to be true.

This isn't the first time we're hearing of the Nexus 7 heading over to Verizon's network. In fact, it was as early as November last year that reports began to fly about Big Red being interested in the device. At the moment, Google Play only offers the 4G LTE Nexus 7 in conjunction with AT&T or T-Mobile (the tablet also comes in an unlocked GSM model). Adding Verizon to the mix is surely going to make many happy—the carrier does boast the largest 4G LTE network in the United States after all.

What's even crazier (if you can believe it), is that Verizon won't be branding the device! Whether it's pure egoism or just a tacky design department, most devices that end up being sold through Verizon usually get an obligatory Verizon logo stamped somewhere on the device. It never looks good, and only serves to undermine the OEM''s aesthetic, so this should be a welcome change of pace.

The Google Nexus 7 features a 7-inch 1080p HD display, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, and 2GB RAM. The tablet runs the latest version of Android at the moment, Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

Will you be picking up a Google Nexus 7 tablet if it comes to Verizon? If so, let us know why in the comments section below.
