Google Nexus 7 to go on sale in India this October
An ASUS spokesperson has confirmed that the Nexus 7 will be available in India by the end of this September, while pricing and other details regarding the configuration will be decided in September.
The Times of India has confirmed that the Google Nexus 7 will go on sale in India this October. Neither ASUS nor Google has fixed the price for India yet. The 7 inch tablet is priced at $199 for the 8GB model and $249 for the 16GB model in the US.
The Nexus 7 is being manufactured by ASUS and according to TOI, a spokesperson from the manufacturer has stated:
“We have to complete the process to bring the tablet to India by the end of September. Once we have the sufficient stock, we will launch it here.”
The spokesperson also added:
“Price and other details, including exact configuration of the tablet, will be decided in September.”
The Google Nexus 7 made its debut last June at the Google I/O conference. The 7 inch tablet is the first-ever tablet from Google and will be shipped in mid-July to markets in the US and three other countries. It is currently available for preorder at the Google Play store.
The Nexus 7 will be the first device to run on Android’s latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is said to offer some amazing new features. And being a Google product, any updates will be received as soon as Google pushes them out.
The Nexus 7 offers impressive specs at an affordable price and for a country like India, where the majority of the crowd tend to be budget-friendly, the Nexus 7 is sure to gain a large popularity.
