Google Nexus 7 might seem like an old tablet, but it is still one of the best tablets, you can buy in this pricing. With the recent launch of Google Play Movies, already available Google Play Books, consumers also get access to a content ecosystem, which is likely to expand in the coming weeks with the launch of Play Music and Magazines.
To remind you, Google Nexus 7 has been manufactured by Asus and comes with features like 7-inch 1280x800p display, 1GB RAM, Android 4.1 (Android 4.2.2 OTA update available), 1.2GHz quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor and 1.2MP front camera.
Update: Turns out Google is using a local importer to bring the Nexus 7 units to India from Singapore and then shipping it to the consumers.
