The popular Google/Asus Nexus 7 is finally available in Singapore starting from 28 Sep 2012. Priced at S$399, it only comes in the 16GB Model. It is the same price as our regional neighbours, Malaysia. It is nowhere near as cheap as the original US price of US$249 and after tax and conversion, we are looking at around S$320-ish. But in terms of specifications for an Android 7″ market, it is the best you can get, if you can live with the gripes (no microSD and HDMI).
S$399. (GST Included and comes with International Warranty)
Buy from Major Retailers such as Challenger, Harvey Norman, Best Denki, Courts. No online sales. Not through Google Play Store.
Just to recap, here are the key specifications of the tablet.
Screen: 7-inch IPS, 1,280 x 800 pixels
Processor: 1.3GHz Quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3
Memory: 1GB DDR2 RAM
Camera: 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera
Operating system: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean

For other alternatives, a strong competitor to the Nexus 7 is the upcoming rumoured iPad-Mini or the Kindle Fire HD (to be launched in November, but US only).
