Verizon's response didn't exactly inspire confidence.
@jeffjarvis I'm excited you got your Nexus 7 but not all LTE tablets are created equal. It's not part of our line up & can't be activated^JH

Given that Verizon Wireless made considerable commitments to device support while bidding for spectrum, and the display of a Verizon logo at the Nexus 7 unveiling, this tweet was received with confusion, and anger by some.
Verizon has gone on to use its main Twitter account (as supposed to support) to explain that the Nexus 7 will be "supported" soon.
Nexus 7 is not yet VZ certified; we expect it to complete testing soon, then we'll work to make avail on our network http://t.co/DmAhqYRPSF-- Verizon Wireless (@VZWnews) September 18, 2013
Given that the Nexus 7 was unveiled months ago, it's difficult to believe that testing is still incomplete.
