At the Google I/O conference in June 2012, the search engine giant unveiled the Asus made Nexus 7 tablet based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and claimed that the device will be shipped starting from mid-July for a price of $199 (approx. Rs 11,000). However, the first Jelly Bean based tablet could not make its way to the Indian market leaving the Android fans disappointed.
