Hello People ,
Google is all set to start selling its tablet Nexus 7 in India India around April 2013. Nexus 7 is a tablet computer by Google. The Nexus 7 is powered by Tegra 3 Quad-core processor running at 1.3Ghz. It has a seven-inch screen with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. It has 1GB RAM and a 1.2 mega-pixel camera for front chat. For now, Google is offering only one model of Nexus 7 in India. The device has 16GB storage and support for Wi-Fi but not 3G.
The Nexus 7 received positive reviews from technology critics, particularly for its competitive pricing, premium-quality build, and powerful hardware. Common criticisms included the absence of cellular connectivity from initial models and no expandable storage. The Nexus 7 has been commercially successful, selling approximately 4.5–4.6 million units in 2012. The device was a double-winner at the 2012 T3 magazine awards, receiving honors for “Gadget of the Year” and “Tablet of the Year”, and was also named “Best Mobile Tablet” at the 2013 Global Mobile Awards. The Nexus 7 competes with similar devices such as Amazon’s Kindle Fire, Barnes & Noble’s Nook Tablet and Nook HD, and Apple’s iPad Mini.
In terms of features and functionality, the Nexus 7 is vastly superior to Android tablets sold in India market for a price of less than Rs 20,000. In terms of performance and user experience, its closest competitor is the iPad Mini. The Apple’s device is a slightly better tablet as it has access to better quality apps but it also costs around Rs 6,000 more than the Nexus 7.
The Nexus 7 is the first Nexus device to be sold officially by Google in India. Nexus S, an Android phone, was also available in India earlier but it was sold and serviced by Samsung.
