Google Nexus S India Launch April 1st Week for Rs.27999?

Online retailer FlipKart has started taking Pre-orders for the Google Nexus S made by Samsung. The asking price for the device is Rs.27999 which is higher than the current price of the Galaxy S i9000.The Nexus S is currently the only Android phone in the market that comes with stock Gingerbread (Android 2.3) . The expected launch date is April 1st week.

The handset is pretty attractive in terms of looks and the curved glass display is pretty nice too. Although the handset is pretty fast, there have been mixed reactions from users about the battery life of the device with some stocking up on a  spare battery.

The India launch of the Nexus S has been making noise for quite sometime now and we are surprised about this piece of news when the world is waiting for the Galaxy S2 from Samsung.  We do not know if this is going to be just a temporary measure till the Galaxy S2 is ready to hit stores or there are plenty of unsold units. India never got the Nexus One so the Nexus S is surely welcome. We are not sure if Samsung managed to get Google’s seal of approval for the launch in India. April 1st week is not far away ,  so we should be finding out soon.

So which one of you is going to buy the Nexus S in India ?

  • It’s like selling left out items in India.
    iPad1 got released in India when iPad2 hit US.

    Now Nexus S will come to India in April !!

    Indian market is capable of purchasing 27k product, then why not release it on the same day as released in US ?

    Big Boys, Bad Boys..

    It is not the easiest of decisions to decide between the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the NexusS. Although the SGS2 has better features, it also carries Touchwiz and Samsung bloatware whereas NexusS promises the pure Google experience with the default Android Gingerbread UI. Decisions! Decisions! 🙂

      Not only that as it is co created by google the updates are up to date for this phone.

      Go on XDA, root your phone and flash it with a custom rom. The SGS2 will be modder friendly and most of these ROM’s remove the bloatware.

  • Guess what this version is SLCD … too bad

  • Rko

    I got one from US ofcourse it is an LED piece. The performance of the phone is real awesome, coming to battery it all depends on how we manage the applications and how we use gprs/3g data servoces. The plus point here is it got stock android 2.3 os which is real cool. I was able to completely change the look and feel of my mobile to a htc mobile by just spending 100 re buying few apps.
