If you want to get the best Android experience on a tablet, look no further than the Nexus 7, at the moment. Jelly Bean has really made the Android experience much smoother, the Tegra 3 processor keeps things fast, the IPS panel ensures a great display with the highly reflective screen being the only drawback. Taking into consideration its US pricing, the Indian pricing is almost over Rs. 5000 premium, which is a lot of money. Also the 8 GB version will offer you only 5.92 GB of usable space, so if you are the kind who like to store their content on their devices, opt instead for the 16GB version. It does not offer any microSD card slot, so expansion is out of the question. Speaker distortion at highest volumes is a downer, but that can be overcome by using earphones which does not have any issues. At Rs. 17,000 for the 8 GB model and Rs. 21,000 for the 16 GB model, pricing is way off the charts, if you are considering buying it in India. But if you have friends or relatives coming from the US, it makes sense to buy the tablet as it is a complete value for money proposition at around Rs. 13,000 for the 16 GB model. But considering the other respectable 7-inch Android tablets in the market, if the Google Nexus 7 is available for under Rs. 15,000, it makes for a great purchase.
