Google Nexus 7 comes to India…

Nov 08, 12 Google Nexus 7 comes to India…

Google Nexus 7 tablet is available in India starting from today, November 8th!

The latest 16GB WIFi version comes as an upgrade to the earlier 8GB and will go on sale at a price range of RS 19,900. Google’s collaborating Taiwanese based partner ASUS is bringing the device to India through the croma outlets.

The search engine giant recently launched the Nexus 4 Smart-phone in collaboration with LG Electronics and the Nexus 10 is expected to roll out by Nov 13th in USA.


The Google Nexus 7 has a 7-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. It runs on an non-modified version of Jelly Bean – Android 4.1 unlike the other Android tablets that run on the latest. Nvidia Tegra 3 processor powers the device and has a 1GB RAM supporting it. The 1.2MP shooter camera on the front enables video calling but there is no camera availability on the rear. The tablet weighs 340 grams and has a battery backup of 9.5 hours for use.

Pricing, Availability & Service

For customers, who have purchased their Nexus 7 from overseas can now access the local service point as there is no regional warranty limitation in case the device needs overhaul. However, a slight pinch might be felt in India when compared to the overseas markets since the pricing in India is quite steep.  Going by the rupee conversion rate, the 8GB should simply work at an approximate figure of Rs 11,300 and 16GB at Rs 14,200.

Grabmore offers the Nexus 7 at RS 17,999 which roughly saves you RS 1,900 from the stated price of RS 19,900.  The tablet is available for cash on delivery and also through the EMI option only for Citibank A/C holders at RS 3,000 per month.
