In an effort to make its products more widely available across the world, Google has released its ever-popular Nexus 7 tablet in India, just roughly one month after launching Google Play Books in the country. For now, only the 16GB WiFi-only model of the Nexus 7 is available to India customers, at a price of 15,999 rupees (just south of $300).
Google Play lists a ship date of April 5 in India, and while it’s certainly not the cheapest tablet that residents of India have access to, it’s great that Google is making its products available in such a large country. It’ll certainly be interesting to see how well it sells in a country like India.
However, the Google Play store in India only offers apps, games, and books, so users in India will certainly be limited to the amount of content that they’ll be able to stuff onto their new Nexus 7 tablets, but hopefully we’ll see movies, music, and more goodies come to the country. In the meantime, you’ll be limited to apps, games, and a bit of reading if that’s your thing.
Of course, Google I/O is coming up quick, so we could see Google announce availability of more of their products in more countries, India included. Google I/O is set for May 15-17, which is just a month-and-a-half away roughly, and tickets for the event sold out in under an hour, so it’s going to be a hot conference, just like last year.
