平板电脑怎么样？ 2013 Nexus 7 LTE平板电脑是否具有类似的特征，同样没有被捆绑到任何载体？
The unlocked Google Nexus phones famously have the Portable Wi-Fi hotspot feature integrated right within the phone, and available for anyone's use, per my understanding, regardless of carrier support.
What about the tablets? Would the 2013 Nexus 7 LTE tablet have a similar feature, similarly not being tied up to any carrier?
Disclaimer: I do not own a Nexus. So the answer does come from internet sources (XDA).
As per this thread these are some of the responses from the owners which indicates that the Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot settings is indeed present in the settings.
So, it is safe to assume, only if your carrier allows tethering or you have a tethering plan the option will appear in the settings menu.
I have a brand new Google Nexus 7 (2013) LTE tablet, bought directly at a computer shop (no carrier-related) and I can confirm, that it comes with Tethering & Hotspot option available by the default.
