We found out earlier this week that Google's Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt would be meeting with Samsung. But Eric Schmidt didn't come to South Korea alone, he brought the Nexus 7 along for the ride. While the Nexus 7 is now available in South Korea, there is a bit of a price increase in the Asian part of the world.
The Nexus 7, 16GB version will be about 299,000 won or about US$ 268 in South Korea. The Japanese will be paying 19,800 yen or US$ 255 for the 16GB model. Those in Singapore will see the highest price, the 16GB model will sell for S$ 399, or US$ 325. So no $199 Nexus 7 for Asia, it's a bit more.
With the Nexus 7 now hitting the Asian countries including South Korea, Japan, and Singapore, Android's tablet market share will grow even more, and hopefully take down that fruity tablet made by a Cupertino, CA company. Any of our readers in South Korea, Singapore or Japan looking to pick up the Nexus 7? Let us know in the comments how you're liking your new Nexus 7.
