Briefly: Nexus 7 Goes 3G, Qantas Cancels One 787 Order

Brief news items of note for Lifehacker readers, including the local debut of the 3G-equipped Nexus 7 tablet and more 787 developments at Qantas.

  • The 3G-enabled version of Google's Nexus 7 tablet has gone on sale in Australia for $349. It's not network-locked, so you can add any 3G SIM of your choice.
  • The 787 grounding continues to have an impact, with Qantas pulling its order for one 787 aircraft. However, the airline still plans to order 14 of the Dreamliner for delivery this year.
  • Google has added a new feature called Place Summaries to its Google Places API, offering up curated reviews of locations which developers can build into other apps. Full details on the Google Enterprise blog.
