Google’s brand new Nexus 7 ad is named “Camping“, and I find it cute and beautiful. It perfectly shows all the important features of the tablet (including the flashlight)!

Love it!

Me: It makes perfect sense for those in US, Aus etc to go buy Nexus 7, thanks to Play store music, movies and books. But why Indians?

Him: Any alternative tablet in India for the same price and same specs?

Me: No.

Him: Then it makes perfect sense for buying it in India right?

Me: Assume there is an awesome heater in US which costs lesser than other models (which have cooler also, but costs more). Will you buy it in Chennai (where the climate is ‘hot’ for 11 out of 12 months) just because it is good and cheap?

Why the Rs 9,999 iPhone 3GS is not such a great buy

Firstpost has this shitty link-bait article and I just fell for it. The article is so good that it took all of the Firstpost’s staff to come up with it (or it is so bad that no one want’s to have their name in author section).

Seriously, what’s the point of owning an Apple product without FaceTime.

Ha! Video calling in India is like the biggest thing right now. “Seriously!”

Ah, in the age of quad-core processors you’d still be paying Rs 10,000 for a smartphone with very basic RAM

Please make up your mind. Your qualms are that iPhone 3GS lacks quad-core processors? “Seriously!”? Duh-uh! Even iPhone 4/4S doesn’t come with quad-cores. So you’ll bash them as well? And how many quad-core smartphones we have for Rs.9,999?

Or is it that you have problems with the RAM? Confused I guess.

“Seriously!”

Buy Nexus 7 in India

Google’s Nexus 7, which is currently on sale in US and few other countries is yet to be launched in India. Whether it makes sense to buy Nexus 7 outside US or not, if you are in the market for a relatively cheap android tablet with a great hardware, you can get one in India, thanks to some sellers on Indiatimes shopping, ebay.in and Tradus.com.

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, the seller is same on all the three sites. Still the price varies for some reason.

Will you get warranty for Nexus 7 when you buy from any of these e-commerce sites? The seller confirms that.

Warranty : 1 Year Manufacturer Warranty

But wait! That’s a blatant lie. Asus India has confirmed that they won’t be providing any support to Nexus 7 (as yet), which makes sense considering they are yet to launch the tablet in India. Looking at the history of Nexus devices, the chances of seeing Nexus 7 launched here is pretty low. But I cannot digest how these e-com sites get away by lying on your face.
