Google has finally blessed India with its first official Nexus device. The Nexus 7 16GB model is now available on the Google Play Store in India for Rs. 15,999. It starts shipping April 5. The 7-inch tablet has already proved its mettle by becoming the most sought after android tablet due to its specs and price.
Although the Nexus 7 16GB comes at a premium price in India but its still quite affordable compared to the iPad Mini. The specifications of the device are top notch:
- Display: 7″ Back-lit IPS 1280×800 HD display (216 ppi),Scratch-resistant Corning® glass
- OS: Android OS, v4.1 (Jelly Bean), upgradable to v4.1.2
- Processor: Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A9, Nvidia Tegra 3
- Memory: 16 GB internal storage (actual formatted capacity will be less), 1 GB RAM
- Dimension: 198.5 x 120 x 10.45 mm
- Weight: 340 g
- Camera: 1.2MP front-facing camera
- Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC
- Battery: 4325 mAH (Up to 8 hours of active use)
Let’s hope this is not the last Nexus device to hit Indian shores, we are eagerly awaiting the Nexus 4 to make rounds here as well. But its a sign of good things to come given the recent launch of Google Books in the Play Store and now the Nexus 7.
