Here’s good news for those in India, who are eagerly waiting to try their hands on the ASUSTEK Computer Inc. (TPE:2357) built, Google Nexus 7. Well, the tablet is finally going to arrive in India.
At a press event in Bangalore, Asus India stated that the Nexus 7 will be released in the country in November. Company officials did not announced the pricing of this new Jelly Bean powered tablet, but they said that the pricing will be announced by the end of the next month.
The Times of India previously reported that the Google Nexus 7 would be launched in India in October, but now it seems that people in India will need to wait longer. November is a special month in India, and that’s because the festival of Diwali also falls in the same month. It seems the company is purposely launching this device in the festive season.
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) announced the Nexus 7 tablet at the I/O conference in June, and the tablet is already selling like hot cakes. This 7-inch tablet is powered by a Tegra 3 quad-core processor, comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and a 1280×800 display.
The currently available model does not feature 3G connectivity. There’s also a rumor that Asus is working on a 3G model of Nexus 7. However, this rumor cannot be confirmed until Asus officially confirms it.
Nexus 7 is available in the US, UK, and Australia, and it won’t be a surprise if we see releases in several other countries.
Google and Asus have already launched this device in Germany, France, and Spain last month. Pre-orders have also started for Taiwan.
Nexus 7 has received very good reviews and buy recommendation from many popular technology blogs. Now we need to wait and watch how Asus prices this product for the Indian masses.
