Google Nexus 7 Tablets Ready To Be Sold: But, The Prices Are Little Higher In India


Indeed, you are just few steps behind to get your hand with the world’s best 7-inch Tablet. Really, it would be a good hearsay for those ordered the device in the last few weeks; they can expect the device on their doorstep soon.  Google unveiled its Nexus 7 Tablet at the end of June this year. On Friday last week, Google announced to start the pre-orders shipments of its self branded Tablet.

Google promulgated on its social networking website (Google+), “Locked and loaded, ready to play: we’ve started shipping +Nexus 7 pre-orders today!

It’s true, the device has been designed for very large masses and that’s why; the price of the device has been kept so low. However, the price of 8GB model has been kept just $199 globally, but it seems little higher in India, INR 16, 499 (almost $296), as offered by the e-commerce site “Grabmore“. However, the same e-commerce site is offering the 16GB model of Nexus 7 Tablet for INR 19,999 (almost $360), but globally, it’s available for $249.

Last week, I discussed about how much profit Google is making from its Nexus 7 Tablet. Astoundingly, Amazon is making more profit than Google from $199 Tablet. The actual cost (BOM and manufacturing) of Google’s Nexus 8 GB  and 16 GB models are $159.25 And $166.75 respectively, while the manufacturing price of Amazon’s 8GB model Kindle Fire is just $139.80.

In terms of hardware, the Nexus 7  Tablet is superb, featuring 1280 X 800 pixels HD display, latest Android Jelly bean and Tegra 3 1.5 GHz quad-core processor. In quality aspects, Amazon’s Kindle Fire is far behind than the Google’s Nexus 7-inch Tablet.

It’s well known that the device is designed by Google and manufactured by Asus. It seems that Google has kept its promise to provide maximum features for the nominal price. It’s the world’s first Tablet for $199 providing full-fledged features in 7-inches screen. In simple words, the device has become a big threat not only for Amazon’s Kindle Fire, but also for Apple’s iPad. However, Apple is also currently working on its 7-inch Tablet, expected to be launched later this year for $300 .
