The wait for Android fans is finally over, with Google launching the new Nexus 7 in India

Available in both 16GB (WiFi only) and 32GB (WiFi / LTE) versions, the 7-inch tablet made by ASUS, offers lots of improvements on the previous specifications, including the 1.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 8064 quad core processor, better screen resolution of 1920x1200 with richer pixel density (323 pixels per inch), and 2GB of RAM.

The new Nexus 7 also offers wireless charging, and connectivity is available in both Bluetooth as well as NFC. The 16GB vmode is available only with WiFi connectivity for Rs 20,999, whereas 32GB model comes with an option for WiFi (Rs 23,999) as well as LTE (Rs 27,999).

Sadly, the new Nexus 7 doesn’t come with Kit Kat updates, which Google released internationally few weeks ago. This means, buyers would have to download extra files from the Internet, before they can enjoy the new features that Android has on offer.
