Now you can buy the hugely popular Google Nexus 7 tablet in India online at the Google play store. The visit of Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google in India recently proved a blessing as now Indians can grab the Nexus 7 online and test drive the tablet that promises to change the tablets market.
Google Nexus 7 Tablet in India
Pitched to compete directly with the Apple iPad Mini and the Samsung Galaxy Tab, it will surely heat up the competition in the tablet marketplace in India. Right now buy Nexus 7 here at the Google India play store online for Rs 15,999 only. Your Nexus 7 tablet will start shipping in India by April 5, 2013.
Nexus 7 boasts of a 7″ 1280×800 HD display (216 ppi), scratch-resistant Corning glass, is powered by NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, 1.2MP front-facing camera, 16GB storage 1GB RAM, features the latest Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and weighs just 340g! It also has multiple sensors like the NFC (Android Beam), Accelerometer, GPS, Magnetometer and Gyroscope.
Note the iPad Mini currently costs Rs 21,500+ and has a lower dual core A5 processor, lower resolution than the Nexus 7 (1024-by-768 resolution at 163ppi), though it has the advantage of larger screen (7.9″), and dual cameras (5MP) with higher resolution.
Internationally Google Nexus has 3 models – Nexus 4 (4″ screen), Nexus 7 (7″ screen) and Nexus 10 (10″ screen). I guess the success of Nexus 7 in the Indian market will decide if other models are also available for sale in India. Since the Google Nexus 7 is only available for sale online, they will also need to test other marketing and sales channels as also set up after sales and repair services outlets in India.
I just placed an order to buy my Nexus 7 tablet… what are you waiting for.
