Samsung says a big No for its Galaxy Nexus to the Indian customers. Samsung India tweeted today that the company won't be launching the Galaxy Nexus smartphone to the Indian mobile market.
It was not pre-defined. The news is a shock to the Android lover here in India. Earlier Samsung had released a statement that its Galaxy Nexus will be released in India in the second week of May.
This is not the first time we are experiencing such uncomfortable relation with Samsung. It has let down we Indians earlier too in similar way. The recent one was the official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) operating system update on Galaxy S II. The company had promised the update to take place by the end of April, but still we are waiting for it.
How to get Samsung Galaxy Nexus in India
It is well said that if there is a will, there is a way. Even if Samsung is not launching its Galaxy Nexus in the Indian market, potential customers can still buy it. The device is available on Play Store US and it is unlocked. It will cost you $399 to buy one, but you need to have any friends and family there to receive the product from the store and then ship it to India to your place.
