ASUS Malaysia has just announced the availability of the new Nexus 7 tablet with 3G connectivity in Malaysia via its Facebook page. Late last week we heard that SenQ are taking pre-orders for the 7-inch tablet, but ASUS has now confirmed local availability, as well as a list of retail partners.
This tablet will officially be known as the Nexus 7C, to differentiate itself from the earlier version. Inside, the Nexus 7C shares the same internals as the Nexus 7 launched earlier this year, featuring a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor running at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM, and also a 7-inch 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display.
The biggest difference, of course, is the addition of a SIM card slot for 3G connectivity in addition to WiFi, as well as a larger 32GB onboard storage. Again, there is no expandable storage option, so you’re stuck with 32GB, but we feel that’s easier to digest than the initial 16GB offered in the first Nexus 7.
The ASUS Nexus 7C by Google is now available nationwide at a retail price of RM1099. If you’re interested in the WiFi-only option, ASUS recently dropped the price for the Nexus 7 to RM899.
