Nexus 7 tablet to hit Indian markets in November


In a press event for the launch of the Padfone and the Transformer Tab, Asus folks unofficially mentioned during a Q&A session that the Nexus 7 tablets could hit the Indian markets some time in November.

They didn’t comment on the indicative pricing of the device, but did mention that they’d announce the pricing by the end of October. The US pricing for the base model of the Nexus 7 is $199 ( approximately Rs. 10749, based on the currency rates of this writing). With taxes and levies, it should retail for around Rs. 13-15,000 by our estimates.

Also we don’t know if this is going to be the Google branded Nexus 7 tablet or an Asus branded equivalent device for the Indian market. We’ll have more details on this closer to the lauch when Asus announces the Nexus 7 for India. In the mean while, the Nexus 7 is unofficially available from online retailers for prices more than Rs. 16,000, which are devices acquired from countries where the Nexus 7 is currently available, and shipping times of over of 2-3 weeks.

I’m currently using the Nexus 7 and will have a review of the device in the coming week or two. So stay tuned for the review. For more details and specs of the Nexus 7, head over to this link.
