  • Shom

  • RB Shah

    I wanna buy nexus 5 very soon…. hope flipkart or some deal sites like buycheapindia can give us some good deals then play store..

    • Mohammed Gouse

      Checked with Flipkart already but they don’t have any information till now, hope they get some soon…..

  • Mohammed Gouse

    How about buying it from US and what about the warranty? Has anyone tried this?

    • Sandeep Prabhakaran

      I don’t think Google provides international warranty. So that’s a bummer!

  • Ahmed Faiz

    its still listed. really waiting for it to go live soon here. any official conformation on it from google india? or is it just media rumour!

  • Kamal

    There’s no listing of either the 2012 N7 or the N5 today in the Google play store India ; it was there till last night.
    Wonder what’s up?
    And if the PS is going to sell the N5, will it still come to flipkart?

  • DJ

    Finally some date to look forward to ,, the term “coming soon” has been getting on my nerves !!! Cant wait to get my hands on the N5

  • Varun

    nexus 7 2013 32GB 3G model pricing…..:)

  • MaitreyaVyas

    FYI N7 was not announced at Google IO this year!

    • Yes, you are right, I got it mixed up with last year… :P… fixed up..

  • chirag

    nexus 5 pricing are exclusive of tax so it will still be more …

    • shaju

      Are you sure. I tried buying the Nexus 7 2012 earlier and it didn’t show me any additional taxes or shipping.

      • chirag

        nope..I thought it would be…but if u have past experience then u may be right.

        • shaju

          I didn’t really complete the transaction. I just clicked through till the payment page.

          Anyway considering the current price of nexus 7 (2012) in play store and outside, I think the Nexus 5 price listed in play store is the MRP. It could be available in other stores for lower prices( if LG launches the device outside play store).

          • Dhirender

            No addl taxes.may b shipping charges. As it is prices more than US market.

          • chirag

            well yes i am just waiting for retailers to sell will be quite affordable then. i also asked flipkart when it will be available there.waiting for their response.

          • Chandra Sekhar Kandru

            You got any reply from FlipKart?

          • chirag

            Yes. They said that they are just intermediary..seller needs to list out products to sell.

        • Chandra Sekhar Kandru

          Just I Tried Buying N7(2012), No extra VAT/Tax. Price is inclusive. And no shipping for N7.

          I wish that would be same for N5 as well.
