Google Nexus 7 for SA unclear

Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet PC was announced towards the end of June and started shipping in July 2012, but it is still unclear whether the device will be coming to South Africa.

The Nexus 7, which is built by Taiwanese manufacturer Asus in conjunction with Google, has received high praise from well known sites such as Anandtech, Ars Technica, and The Verge.

It boasts a 7-inch WXGA (1280×800) display that makes use of in-plane switching technology, 8GB or 16GB storage, 1GB RAM, and runs the latest version of Google’s Android operating system (4.1 “Jelly Bean”) on a 1.2GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.

8ta, Cell C, MTN, and Vodacom were asked whether they would be getting the device, but only MTN and Vodacom responded by the time of publication.

A Vodacom spokesperson said that it is too early to confirm any details at this stage, while MTN directed our queries to Google South Africa.

Google said that just like all its products and services, they would love to bring the Nexus 7 to South Africa as soon as possible.

The search giant added that there is nothing else to announce or share at the moment.
