Nexus 7 Officially Available in India through Google Play
Good news to Nexus 7 Lovers in India, now you can buy Nexus 7 in India from your home.Just visit Google Play store from your mobile or PC and select to pay RS 15,999 for 16 GB version of Nexus 7 and the device will be shipped by April 5th via Fedex/Aramex.
I think this is a nice Holi Gift from Google for Indian Nexus 7 lovers,although the device is selling for $200 (RS 11,000) in U.S, but I think other factors like 16% Custom Duty and import tax has brought the price of the device to RS 16,000($290). However the price of the device is low when compared to Crom retail store price, where the same version of the tablet sold for RS 19,999.
Anyway this is a nice gesture from Google, after launching Books in Google play store and now the internet giant is directly selling its most popular tablet in India, which means in future we can expect Google selling more Nexus line-up devices in India.
When you look in to this 7-inch-tablet history, In November 2011 Google launched Nexus 7 as a affordable high-end tablet ,built by Asus and it has been hot cake allover the giving competition to iPad and another Android tablet.
According to me,the most exciting features that drives users to buy this tablet is pure Android experience and updates from Google, which will reach this device very fastly before other Android tablets.Features of Nexus 7 (16 GB version) available for sale in India include : 7-inch 1280×800 HD display,Android 4.1 jelly bean OS, a 1.3 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor,12-core GPU, 1GB RAM, 1.2MP front camera, 16 GB internal storage (actual formatted capacity will be less),WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, MicroUSB, NFC (Near Field Connectivity), Accelerometer, GPS, and 4325 mAh battery.
