Smart has posted an announcement for the pre-order date of the Google Nexus 7. The telco will start accepting subscribers on November 30 and will ask them to sign-up for SmartBro FlexiSurf Pocket WiFi Plan 599.
Once signed up for FlexiSurf WiFi Plan 599 (50 hours per month), you will be able to get the Nexus 7 for only Php600 per month for 24 months at 0% interest. That puts the price of the Nexus 7 at Php14,400.
This is the 32GB WiFi model we reported to you earlier here. While the tablet is unlocked, you are tied up to the data plan for 24 months.
“From November 30, 2012, you can pre-order the Nexus 7 from flexisurf.smart.com.ph,” said Smart Broadband Internet and Data Services head Lloyd Manaloto.
“Simply sign up for a Smart Bro Flexisurf Pocket WiFi plan 599 and you can own this amazing tablet at 0% interest for just P600 a month for 24 months—even without credit card,” Manaloto said.
So, your total cash-out is basically Php1,199 per month for 24 months.
No word from Smart when they will offer the 3G model but my sources from Asus tell me it’s going to be in 1st quarter of 2013.
The 32GB Nexus 7 is also being sold in retail stores for Php13,995.
