Just a couple days before we saw Google Play Store bring in the Google Nexus 7 officially to India and now Asus brings the 32 GB Nexus 7 in India at 18,999INR for WiFi only version, while the 32GB WiFi + cellular version is on sale for 21,999 INR.

The reason we used the term “Asus Nexus 7” and not Google Nexus 7 is because of the difference in how it is being branded and sold. While the 8GB and the 16GB variants are being sold at the Google Play Store. Asus is offering the 32 GB Nexus 7 variant which will be available to purchase via multi-brand retail stores like Chroma,etc.

Peter Chang, Regional Head – South Asia & Country Manager, System Business Group, Asus India quoted :

“We are elated to announce the most awaited ASUS Nexus 7 to the Indian consumers. We have received an assenting reception for this tablet from the users globally and we are happy to cater to the growing demand in India by making it easily available in the country. The Asus Nexus 7 is a promisingly thin, light and portable marvel which will revolutionize your computing experience and to become your permanent travel companion. It is one of the finest products available at an affordable pricing with exceptional speed and performance. We believe that Asus Nexus 7 will bring us further closer to the persistent perfection that we set to achieve and offer to our consumers.”

While it’s been almost a year now that the Nexus 7 released globally , we really think it’s too late for Asus to arrive with what could be a game changer a year ago. Well as they say – Better late the never!
