Google Nexus One India is from Google, which was launched at California, at present available at three countries, may be launched in due course of time in India.



Google Nexus One India – Introduction


The first smart phone launched by none other than the giant search engine Google, it was launched at California, but at the moment it is a bit disappointing news that it may launch in due course in India not now. As per the version of the Apple IPhone users this product has not created much hype among the anticipated users, as at present this beautiful handy set is available only at U.S.A., U.K., Singapore and also in Hong Kong.

The non availability and non flexibility of 3G mobile technology in India was the base reason for the non availability of Google Nexus India at present, as the present 3G technology is provided only in BSNL in India, but where as in other countries like U.K. already a trial of next generation that is 4G mobile broadband technology has been tested.

Moreover, the Google Nexus was not launched in India at present because the Google India has made a statement as the launching of this phone is made available only in 3 countries at present, it will be launched in due course in other parts of the world based on the users feedback, further it needs the certification from respective countries and the said process should not enhance the price of the phone which includes import regulations, and they are in a hope that the people in other countries where it is available now will make a purchase soon.

The launch of this smart phone could be the wonderful news in the new year, the sale of this phone is much expected as this set is based on Android platform, hence the cost of the phone will be reduced and cheaper compared to other smart phones, for this reason people are much interested to buy this product at the earliest. The people are so much interested including India, as the enquiry about the launching dates and the cost of the set at that time has been in rapid progress. But from cost point of view this smart phone is much cheaper than Apple’s iPhone, but even HTC phones are also having the same Android platform, as this reason could be the helpful news as the Google Nexus India may not create much jigger in people who purchase in India.

But HTC magic is also runs under Google software and at present available through Airtel, earlier people are in confusion about the manufacturing of this set as whether is that by Google, but in fact only Google software was adopted and HTC has made the handset, but now in Nexus one it is completely owned by Google including the handset as Google has entered the mobile phone market with the launch of this set. But for Google it will be a good news that the iPhone is not so popular in India. And there could be chances that the HTC in India may launch and sell the Google Nexus one, so it may not create much problem.
