Google’s shiny new Nexus 7 might be coming to India, that is, if you are into reading tell tale signs. The status on the Google India Nexus 7 page was “coming soon,” ever since the launch of the device in the United States. You can now sign up email to be notified on the availability of the device.
Currently you can pick up the old Nexus 7 in India from online e-commerce stores for as low as Rs 9,999. This huge discount might be sign of the impending arrival of the new Nexus 7 in India.
The old Nexus 7 was listed on the Google Play India store only on March this year, nearly 9 months after its US launch. It was the first time Google was selling a device through its Play Store in India. Hopefully this time around the device should be making its way into the Indian markets around Diwali.
The new Nexus 7, launched in the United Stated in the month of July, currently retails on the US Play store from $ 299 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model.
