The device has been priced at Rs 15,999 and it will ship to consumers on April 5. Indian consumers can also pre-order the tablet through Google Play store.
Schmidt said last week that “I apologize for the lack of Nexus devices in India… But this is something we are working on. Part of the problem is that our products are more expensive than what they should be here in India. Then there are certification issues. We want a fully-serviced market.”
The tablet runs Android Jelly Bean (version 4.1) and is powered by the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, which clocks at 1.3 GHz. The Nexus 7 comes with a 7-inch IPS display screen with a resolution of 1280×800 pixels and pixel density of 216 ppi.
The tablet has 1GB of RAM, a 1.2 megapixel front camera and a 4325 mAh battery. It also comprises NFC functionality.
