Just met with an ASUS rep who showed me a couple of their upcoming Windows 8 devices which unfortunately I cannot talk about in detail nor show any photos. So I asked about the Google Nexus 7.
The Google Nexus 7 is a 7-inch WiFi-only Android tablet that was developed by ASUS. It may be just like any other 7-inch Android slates in the market but what made it appealing is its quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor coupled with an attractive price. In the US, the 8GB version of the Nexus 7 goes for only $199 which made it one of the hottest selling Android tablets right now.
A lot of Filipinos who are interested at the Google Nexus 7 only have the grey market to rely on for units. According to our local ASUS contact, it will become official this late October. Only the 16GB version will be sold here for a price not going over Php14,000. One of the popular online gadget stores, Widget City, currently sells the same 16GB for Php14,900.
You also won’t get the same $25 Google Play credits US customers have as well as Google Play specific apps like Books, Video and Music that other countries are enjoying.
