Update: It’s official:

DroidLife is reporting that the Verizon version of the Nexus 7 has finally received its certification, and that stocks of the device are currently in the back-room storage areas of at least some Verizon stores.

Yesterday, we received word from sources that the Nexus 7 had finally received certification from Verizon and would be sold through the carrier as early as February 13. We also saw some cases for the device, with Verizon branding, arrive in stores for the launch. Today, we are now seeing the actual device hit back storage rooms of stores, but reps are told that it can’t be sold just yet … 

The Verizon-branded model reportedly comes with 32GB of storage. If you’re wondering whether to get one, check out our review.

A sketchy rumor recently suggested that Asustek may be working on an 8-inch replacement model to be launched in April, but we view that with a large pinch of salt.

    My main concern is how fast customers are actually going to run to a Verizon store and purchase it. With major competitors like Apple, will the Nexus 7 tablet have a chance this year.
