Australian Google Play Devices priming to sell phones for upcoming Nexus device(s) launch?
The Australian Google Play store began selling devices with the Nexus 7 (and accompanying accessories). Being a launch country of the N7, we were among the likes of the US who had devices being sold online via Google Play since the Galaxy Nexus a few months earlier.
While there’s still no physical differences to the store, it appears that the icon for the Devices section has had a minor revamp. Instead of just having a tablet there, the symbol has had a phone added to the small – but noticeable – icon. While this isn’t any proof per-say of phones coming to the online store, we can only hope that this is what it means.
To throw some speculation into the rumour pool, I’d guess that Google is getting ready to offer the upcoming Nexus devices that we expect to launch on October 29th. We’re expecting to see the introduction of the wildly leaked Nexus 4, the Nexus 10 and a revamped Nexus 7 (think: 32GB & 3G options).
As always, take this with a grain of salt. However, it does look like Google could be preparing to offer us Australians some more options. Maybe even when Google’s playground becomes open (as the October 29th event teases), we’ll be seeing not only more devices sold down under but the appearance of the Google Music Store. Alright, I’ll stop with the speculation – but we can hope!
Would your purchase a Nexus phone/tablet from Google Play if Google gave you the option?
