Making the Nexus 7 costs $ 184 but Google will sell it for $199

An investigation of the components of the tablet manufactured by ASUS Google Nexus 7, highlights a cost of $ 184 to manufacture.

Given that the Nexus 7 sold for $ 199, the margin for Google would be minimal. If we add the costs of research and development, logistics, marketing and other costs, we can conclude that, on paper, Google loses money on each unit sold Nexus 7.

The strategy would compensate for the revenue costs through the sale of content in Google Play, the distribution service applications, games and multimedia that Google is clearly focused on internal Nexus 7 tablet.

Another objective of this device would advance the development of Android and extend the platform to cut market share to Apple iPads. Also increase advertising revenue and strengthen first in searches.

    In U.S. :P, In India it has not been confirmed by Google officially that when it will be available to market. In few countries like Ukraine Google first announced that it will be launch in Sept this year but after the release of Nexus 7 in US (in mid July), then Google will launch in Ukraine as well but Google will sell $199 tablet for $250 and nothing has been confirmed about India. If Google will launch it in India in the end of July then also Google will sell it for $250 in India. But in the month of September, It will surely arrive to India.
