Looking at the trend on “how top mobile manufacturers release their products in India”:
Apple has always released its new products late in India. To their surprise, iPhone sales have grown by almost 400% in this quarter in the subcontinent.
Google has been even slower. Nexus devices take a lot of time to enter the Indian market. By the time they ‘officially’ reach the Indian shores, the craze is long gone. Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 have not entered the Indian market yet. Read this: Forget it, the LG Nexus 4 is not coming to India.
Samsung: One of the top players in the Indian mobile market has always released their latest devices very quickly.
Nokia: Another top player in the Indian Mobile market has been a bit slow in releasing their devices not only in India but also worldwide. Lumia 920 and 820 which were announced in September`12 and released in November`12 around the globe arrived in India on January 10th, 113. But India was the first country to receive Lumia 510.
