Google and ASUS combined together to make a wonderful gadget
Courtesy of ASUS Malaysia, I was invited to the launch of Google Nexus 7. Too bad I was stuck in the jam at Jalan Tun Razak as there were protestors that made my 5 minutes journey into 40 minutes traffic jam... I've missed too much for the Google Nexus 7 event and by that time it is already Q&A session. Why...

The lucky media member who won himself a brand new Google Nexus 7. Congratz!
Finger crossed for their slogan contest and hope I can win!

Anyhow, still manage to catch up with some of the media friends there. RM999 is the official price that you can get in Malaysia. When I was in London for Olympic Games, there was one blogger who already bought the Google Nexus 7 in UK. I guess the main selling point of Google Nexus 7 is the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS that allows you to enjoy new features. Of course, including their built-in parts that combined together to form a high performance 7" tablet.

Met Kugan ( and LiewCF at Google Nexus 7 launch today =)

Now please imagine you need to depends on the wireless connection around you to connect to the internet in Malaysia... For now, yeah you can use tethering or WIFi direct to connect your Google Nexus 7 to the internet. However, I believe it would be great if we can insert our Micro SIM or even Nano SIM Card (Maxis is implementing it soon) into Google Nexus 7 so that it is available for making calls and surf the net anywhere anytime. This will makes Google Nexus 7 makes even more wonders!

Would you get your Google Nexus 7 from Malaysia? Wanna get your USD 25 Google Play money?

The current main downside about Google Nexus 7 in Malaysia is the unavailability of music, movies and books for Malaysians on Google Play. It will need some time for it to be available throughout the world. Considering the price, is it okay for you to own a gadget without extra SD card slot, without HDMI port, without rear-facing camera and WiFi only?

So yeah, with the price of RM 999 offered to everyone who resides in Malaysia. Would you prefer to get your Google Nexus 7 locally or through other country? What's the main reason you wanna one this cool gadget co-created by ASUS and Google? Leave a comment below!
