My view:
Those who wish to buy tablet, Nexus 7 is the flaghship device for Android on tablets, but I think the price of the device is some what high when you compare the $200 (around RS 12,000) rate tag with the price in India.

The 16GB model sold in India supports only Wi-Fi connectivity,but there is no word whether 3G version will be available  in India, which will go on sale in US and other countries starting November 13.
