Today, Asus Malaysia launched the long-awaited Google Nexus 7 tablet at Romanza Le Restaurant, KL. The official price for Google Nexus 7 16GB is RM999. And it’s now available for sale starting from 21st September which is today in all Asus Malaysia authorized dealers nationwide. So far johnkhor.com does not have the list but if any of you bought your unit already, do leave a comment ya.
So far Google Nexus 7 8GB is not available for sale in Malaysia for the moment. There is no words whether Malaysians will get the 8GB version and there is no mention of any date. Anyhow, I believe many will still be getting one soon since it is way cheaper than getting one from the grey market.
Google Nexus 7 comes with quad-core 1.3 Ghz Tegra 3 processor, 12 cores GPU GeForce, 1GB RAM and a front 1.2MP camera. It does not support 3G or GSM for voice calls. There is no rear camera also. For full specs for Nexus 7, click here.
For those of you who are still considering on which Android tablet to get, think no more and get this baby. It’s definitely worth your money! I believe some Apple fanboys willl also buy this tablet. Let’s see.
Let’s enjoy the video of the introduction of Nexus 7.
One a side note, iPhone 5 is now available for sales now at its retail stores and also Apple online store for the 1st batch of countries that are receiving their iPhone 5s, namely US, UK, Australia and Singapore. Click here for the full list of 1st batch and 2nd batch of countires receiving iPhone 5.
Why didn’t Asus Malaysia learn from Apple on how to launch its Google flagship tablet? It is the first tablet in the whole world running Android 4.1,Jelly Bean and receiving rave reviews from many tech critics. And I wonder will Asus Malaysia do any special promotion for early buyers of Nexus 7.
And ya, by the way, there is no news of Nexus Cube and there will be no US$25 store credit (promotion ends on 30th September) that is currently on going in US.
What’s your say? Have you gotten one for yourself already? If yes,, do share your experience with johnkhor.com ya.
