Google is all set to launch its 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet in India. This
entry level version of this tablet will be available in stores starting
Thursday for Rs. 19,999.
Google Nexus 7 tablet, is built by Taiwanese
manufacturer Asus. It was first showcased in June 2012 and went on sale
from mid-July. At the time of its launch, the 8GB Wi-Fi version of Nexus
7 was available for $199, but it has since been replaced by a 16GB
version at the same price. It is not clear yet if the 8GB or the 16GB
units will debut as the entry level Nexus 7 in the Indian market.
tablet runs on Android Jelly Bean (version 4.1) and is powered by
Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, which clocks at 1.3 GHz. Nexus 7 comes with
7-inch IPS display screen with a 1280x800 resolution. The other
features of the tablet include 1GB RAM, 1.2 megapixel front camera and
4325 mAh battery.
This tablet will be competing with the likes of
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 P3100, though the Samsung tablet offers the ability
to make calls.
Indians who've been eagerly awaiting the launch of
the tablet in India will be bitterly disappointed by the price tag,
which is over two times the dollar equivalent.
Google is also
offering 32GB as well as 3G-enabled variants of Nexus7, but as of now,
there are no indications if these variants will be available in India,
or their price. We expect to find more details once the tablet goes on
