In the past Google has ignored India as a premier market for its nexus lineup of smartphones and tablets. Google nexus devices are those devices that run stock android versions without any UI customization by the manufacturer in collaboration with its OEM partners. ASUS, LG, SAMSUNG have launched google nexus devices in the past.
But these devices are never released in india although we can get it Unofficially but that would be without any warranty. Hardcore Android fan boys would love to get their hands on a nexus device as it’s the best thing you can get to experience vanilla android. As in most cases, manufacturers add customized UI over the stock version.
for example Samsung’s Touch Wiz or HTC sense. Which in most of cases slows down the device and brings down the user experience and is not liked by many. Nexus devices are the first ones to get any updates released by Google without having to wait for the manufacturer to roll out updates.
ASUS has just revealed that they might bring Nexus 7 to India in the 2nd quarter of 2013 i.e. sometime in June. The device might be priced below Rs 20000. With Nexus devices Google is hoping to increase its market share over apple. I don’t know why Google has ignored India for its nexus devices. Hope to hear some good news from Google soon.
