Nexus 7 May Lose Market Without Cellular Connectivity

July 23, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Initial reviews have all declared that Nexus 7 is a great device. Theses reviews had so much impact that consumers started ordering the devices by the dozen.

In fact, Google was forced to stop selling the 16 GB version of the device because it could not manage the overflow of orders.

Despite the fact that it brings the brand new Jelly Bean and a lot more interesting stuff in a reasonable hardware for a luring $199 price line, Nexus 7 has big drawback – it does not offer cellular connectivity.

We are not intentionally trying to rake up a negative post on Nexus 7, but are trying to get our point through about the importance of tablets having the power of cellular connectivity in our times when people love sticking to internet on the go.

As we are more and more habituated with constantly tweeting and shooting a mail to one of our friends, (not to say about the instant photo updates to Facebook albums), being left away without connectivity is horrible.

That is the issue we found with the Wi-Fi only option of Nexus 7, in fact with every Wi-Fi only tablet. It is ok, when you roam around a campus where there is Wi-Fi but if you are not, you will find it difficult to access internet.

Since we have been bombarded with the news of the Nexus 7 tab, we hoped it will come packed with cellular connectivity, but Google disappointed us.

May be the issue of keeping the target price line has limited its possibilities, but Nexus 7 may lose some of the market when people are turning more and more into internet beings.
