For Android tablet fans, it would have been a disappointment to see an error saying the device “is not available” in India for the months past. However, now Google is officially selling the Nexus 7 tablet on its Google Play website for the Indian market! The Google Nexus 7 is being priced at Rs. 15,999 for the 16GB Wi-Fi version. 

Customers need to set up a Google Wallet account to pay for the transaction. They can pay via their credit/debit cards. According to the website, the devices should ship by April 5th,2013. However, this is not the first time the device has hit Indian shores. Croma has been selling the Nexus 7 for a price of Rs 19,999 since last November, as manufacturers Asus has partnered with them to sell the tablet through retail stores.

As already known, the Nexus 7 has the same specifications as before (7″ 1280*800 display, Wi-Fi,Quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1 GB RAM, 16GB Internal Storage,Android 4.1 Jellybean). While the same device is being sold at US$199 in the US, the price tag for the Indian market is very reasonable considering that buying the device in the states and importing it to India(with duty taxes), would actually cost much more. 

This comes on the heels of Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt visiting India for the “Google Big Tent” event being held in New Delhi. Consumers in India are eager for other Google products, such as the Nexus 4 and the Google Nexus 10 to be released as well in India. 

What do you think about this news? Will you be getting the Nexus 7?
