Mumbai: At Asus' press event in Bangalore on Tuesday, it confirmed that the Google Nexus 7 tablet will reach Indian shores in November this year. Although, at the moment, there is no word on its pricing, the report suggests that as per the manufacturer, a confirmed price may be revealed at the end of this month.
One of our earlier reports had indicated that the Nexus 7 would arrive in India only after September. Anonymous sources from Asus, at the time had revealed that Google and Asus didn't have any plans of releasing the Nexus 7 in the country before September.
Announced at the recently concluded Google I/O 2012 event, the Google Nexus 7 tablet is not just designed to take on Apple’s highly successful iPad, but it will also pose a stiff threat to the Amazon Kindle Fire. Google aims to tackle the competition better with its pricing strategy of this Asus-manufactured tablet.
The Google Nexus 7 tablet is available in two storage capacities, which are 8GB and 16GB, and the brand has priced them extremely competitively at $199 and $249 respectively. Google has added a lot of high-end hardware to the mix, and has kept the price down to a minimum by pricing it at $199 for the base model.
