"Nexus in India" – A day dream?
Even though India is the hub for technology, Indians have to wait some more time for Google Nexus one to hit the Indian market. But we must also consider the fact India is so far not very good when it comes to the use of smart phones. So this might be a hindrance for the introduction of Nexus one's release in India. Even the Google India's MD Shailesh Rao, stated that it is unfortunate for Nexus one not released in India as he heels that India is not yet Smartphone friendly.
He also stated that it is difficult to predict when Nexus one will be released in India. It is also believed that the development of mobile technologies is very much slow in India , when compared to that of other countries, because ewe concentrate most of the time in various schemes announced by the operators rather than the advancement in the technologies in Mobile phones. This proves that India is slow in this field and the Government must also make sure that a fast development takes place in this field. But unfortunately we are just moving to the full fledged 3G era, whereas other countries were already using it.
But this is not only a disappointment for the people of India but also for Google, because India is the best place to market their products and also to gain more.The only thing we can do is just watch the pictures in internet but hope never fails and very soon India will be the center and heart of mobile phones and Indians will enjoy using all the latest Cell phones, very first, than any another person in this world.
