Nexus 7 Now Officially Available In India Via Google Play Store
While consumers in Europe and the U.S. who wanted to lay their hands on Google's Nexus 7 tablet could easily do so by heading to the Google Play Store, those in India did not have that option. However, now the Nexus 7 can be procured directly from the Google Play Store in India.
Better late than never! Indian consumers need not scout for third-party retailers anymore to get the 7-inch ASUS-made tablet from Google. Previously, the Google Play Store in India only offered books and apps, but now with the Nexus 7 tablet in its listings, other Nexus devices seem to be in the cards as well.
"Indian consumers can finally buy the Google Nexus 7 directly from the Google Play Store! After the Indian Play Store recently added the availability of books (movies and magazines are still not available), it now looks like Nexus devices have also been added to the list," reports Android Authority.
The Nexus 7 tablet, however, is only available in one storage option: 16GB (Wi-Fi). No sign of the 32GB (Wi-Fi) and the 32GB (Wi-Fi and HSPA+) versions on the Play Store yet. Hopefully, these variants will soon make their way to Indian shores officially.
The Nexus 7 sports a 7-inch IPS display with 1280 × 800 pixels resolution, a 1.2 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 1.2-megapixel secondary camera, a 4325 mAh battery and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The 16GB version of the Nexus 7 is priced at Rs 15,999 (about $300), making it more expensive than its international counterparts. In the U.S., the same version sets consumers back by $199.
The tablet is expected to ship by April 5 and the Rs 15,999 price tag is not inclusive of shipping. The charge for shipping will be calculated at check-out. If you want to pick up the Nexus 7, head over to the Google Play Store.
