Google’s much awaited Nexus series of phones and tablets finally have an India option on their website. There has been no official announcement as yet but there are signs that the Nexus 4 will be up for pre-orders in India from 15th March.
Sadly, the Google Nexus India page does not provide any India specific details as yet. Consumers in India have been anticipating a launch since October last year but that got delayed to January and now March. There were reports that the launch of LG Nexus 4 in India was delayed further due to a spat between Google and LG, the developers of the smartphone. The manufacturers were said to be arguing over its pricing for India.
Online retail store, Saholic mentions on its website that the Google Nexus 4 will be available from March 15th.
In US, Nexus 4 smartphone is sold for $299(around ?16,250) for 8GB and $349(around ?19,000) for 16GB model. In India, LG is reportedly contemplating to sell the Nexus 4 at a much higher price.
