Google launches its Nexus 7 Jelly Bean tablet in Japan
Today, Google has introduced the Nexus 7 – its Asus-made Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet – in Japan, which has become the eighth country to get the device.
Google is offering the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 in Japan for 19,800 yen (about $255). At the moment, the tablet is available only online, and should hit the shelves in retail stores on October 2.
With Apple’s iPad being considerably more expensive, and Amazon’s affordable Kindle Fire missing from the Japanese market, Google can certainly sell lots of Nexus 7 tablets there.
A 3G-capable edition of the Nexus 7 might be announced by Google in October. We’ll let you know if it happens.
