Nexus 7 in India: There is no denying the fact that a growing number of companies are beginning to realize the importance of establishing a strong customer base in India. This definitely holds true for Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG).
Google is one of the hedge fund industry’s most popular stock picks, and it’s always important to pay attention to the smart money (see just why here).
According to a report by ZDNet, pre-orders of the company’s Nexus 7 have been made available “one week ahead of the official release date.”
While there is no doubt that many people in India are excited about this tablet coming to their country, the question remains the same: will it be able to compete with the likes of the iPad mini and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0?
On April 5, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) will release the Nexus 7 to the Indian public. At this time, the tablets will begin to ship to consumers.
Here is more information on pricing and features from the same ZDNet article:
“The Nexus 7 is priced at INR 15,999 (US$295) for the 16 GB internal storage, expandable to 32 GB variant, with a shipping time of 3 to 7 days. Hailed as the lightest tablet, at just 340 grams, the specifications include the Google Android 4.2 OS Jellybean, running on a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor with 1 GB of RAM. It also has a separate 12 core graphics processing unit (GPU) for gaming, in addition to an accelerometer, gyroscope, and magnetometer.”
The article notes that the tablet does not have a SIM card slot but does allow for NFC support. The author goes on to wonder whether this is the company’s way of pushing consumers to “embrace devices with NFC in order to also introduce mobile payments and machine to machine (M2M) communications within India.”
Soon enough, we will have a better idea of how the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Nexus 7 is going to perform in India. What are your thoughts on this? Share your opinion in the comment section below.
