While Apple Embraces India, Google Turns Its Back
Bangalore: While Apple, the makers of some most desirable gadgets in the world, is quietly picking up its pace with the country, its rival Google tries to ignore India. The last two years saw Google launching 6 Nexus Smartphones and tablets with its hardware partners out of which only one made its way to India reports TOI.
Nexus devices which primarily compete with iPhones and iPads are considered best in their class. Gaurav Shukla, the editor of androidOS.in also states the same as the device price ($299 for basic model) has an incredible value for money. But even after 50 days of its availability in the U.S., it is yet to reach India and for Smartphone enthusiasts, it may become a big issue because Nexus devices are the only ones which provide a pure ‘Android experience’.
Avoiding questions regarding the availability of Nexus, Google recently told Times of India that they were making wider reaches for their products, but there were no new announcements till now.
The staunch in number of Nexus devices may have halted its availability. This may be due to the lack of Google’s integration with its hardware partners. Other reasons could be such that Asus and Samsung have their own devices and tend to be cautious of Nexus devices even if they partner with Google for the programme.
