It's just been a few days since software giant Google pulled the wraps off its second-generation Nexus 7. Now, its predecessor has got itself a major price-cut in India.

Popular tech blog has spotted the first-generation Google Nexus 7 (16GB) at an e-retailer Amazon being offered with retail price of ₹11,999, almost ₹4,000 less than the current price of ₹15,999 in the market.

The Google-Asus Nexus 7 tablet PC sports a 7-inch IPS HD screen with 1280x800p resolution having pixel density close to 216 ppi (pixels per inch). It runs on Android v4.2 Jelly Bean OS (new v4.3 update available via OTA) powered by 1.2GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor paired with 12-core graphics processing unit.

Other specifications include 1GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory, 1.2-megapixel camera on the front side, 4325 mAh battery, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity support.

With the feature-rich Nexus 7 now being offered at such a dirt-cheap price, it is certain to affect many local players who are offering low-cost tablets with the same price-range.

Google is reportedly planning to release the recently unveiled new generation Nexus 7 in India in the coming days. Speculations are rife that it might get a price-tag of around ₹18,000 (16GB).
