Google has launched its popular Google Nexus 7 tablet in India priced at Rs. 15,999/-. If you got to Google Play’s Nexus 7 page – This is how you will be greeted.
Google Nexus 7 is probably one of the most awaited tablets in India since it launched in US more than 6 months back, partly due to the specifications it boasts and the competitive price tag that it.
Though relatively cheaper than the tablets in the same specification range, it is interesting to see that Google has priced it much higher than what it costs in the US – For 16GB model it is USD 199, while the 32 GB model is priced at USD 249. IN rupee terms that price works out to Rs. 10,700 and Rs. 13,700 respectively.
While the 32 GB version is not available in India, 16GB model is priced nearly Rs. 5000 higher in India.
Google devices tend to change market pricing dynamics, more so in a country like India where people are extremely price conscious. With Nexus 7 launch many big brand name tablets will definitely need to restructure their pricing. Google offers great specs, great pricing along with great brand name as well. I am not sure that any other tablet however good can now sell over Google Nexus’ 7’s price.
If you place an order with Google Nexus 7 now, they will start shipping by April 5th. So, if you have been waiting for this tablet, go ahead and order one now
