It was almost one and a half year ago that the search king Google decided to foray into mobile phones and tablets. Using its own open ended platform, Android and a collaboration with chipmaker ASUS, it made its initial mark in an emphatic manner. However, as the market dynamics kept on changing, the company has done well to move along.
Recently, Google slashed the prices of its Nexus 7 32 GB tablet by Rs. 3,300. The device which earlier would have earlier cost Rs 18,299 is now available at Rs 14,999. This comes with a 30 days replacement warranty as well. However it continues to sell at the older price on Google India Play Store.
One reason for this reduction is the rapid jump in the competition since Google first offered Nexus 7. Many players, who use Google powered Android, have come in the arena with their offers. Secondly, Google could be mulling over launching something new in this category.
So, why not make some extra green bucks before they stop selling Nexus 7? It is tough to zero-in on the exact reason, but then who needs it! As long as you like Google’s Nexus 7 and were planning to buy it, you should make the most of this chance. In case you haven’t started your research yet, here is what you can get for your Rs 14,999-
