Villman starts selling 32GB Nexus 7 at Php13,995

Since the announcement of the 32GB model of the Nexus 7, the original 16GB model was reduced to a price tag of just $199 in the US. Asus Philippines is finally set to release the 32GB in the Philippines this month, skipping the 16GB. Villman went ahead is now selling the 32GB.

We earlier reported that a confirmation from an Asus Product Manager points to November is the release date of the 32GB WiFi-only model of the Nexus 7.

The 32GB Nexus 7 is being sold by Villman at a retail price of Php13,995 which isn’t bad considering the internal storage.


We believe this is already the SRP (suggested retail price) set by Asus Philippines since the last time I talked to them, this amount was being contemplated.

Smart has also recently announced, via Twitter, that it will be offering the Nexus 7 soon and it will come with a plan. We think that model will be the 3G model of the 32GB and the plan will be included under the UnliData packages.

    I wonder what’s the official SRP per Asus. Villman’s is usually overpriced.

    • yuga says:

      I think this is SRP already since the last time I talked to Asus, this figure was the one we were talking.

    • Fleeb says:

      If that is the SRP then I expect to be paying the same amount for a straight CC payment. Baka biglang yan yung “discounted cash price” tapos yung “regular price” for CC transaction iba na.

    kelan kaya yung may 3g lalabas nito? sana wag naman patungan ng mataas if ever. Ayos na ang price for the 32gb.

    Still Overpriced buti nalang meron nang GCASH-AMEX virtual card pwede kang umorder sa google store tapos padala mo sa personalized US address and then you just need to ship it for $25 so all in all magastos ka lang ng $275 = 11,313php lol vs sa mga yan w/c is around 14k na

    • christian says:

    • Potato says:

    • Jes says:

      Magkano ang how will it it take if there’s warranty concern naman?

    • Jes says:

      Magkano and how long will it it take if there’s warranty concern naman?

    • lu says:

      Pano po yung tax pagdaan ng customs para sa mga taong walang mapapasabayang balikbayan box o walang kilalang uuwi ng pinas para personal nyang dalhin?

    • r41 says:

      Paano pag defective pala nakuha mo? Tawa nalang? :))

    • jacob says:

      I asked the asus service center about a month ago regarding warranty coverage. They said that if the nexus 7 was bought in a country with asus global warranty, they would honor it.

      Whether this holds true in actual practice is anybody’s guess.

    • Mr A says:

      If the shipping cost holds true, then there would be other dealers that will on a much lower cost, maybe around 12-13K. While buying directly from google may cost you less, the risk of having your unit seized by a corrupt BoC or worse, missing is worth the extra the retailers or other dealers are charging.

  9. bagongsaing says:

    it’s still 4.1 jellybean… di ba dapat 4.2 na? out of the box? hmmm.

  10. Ron says:

    I read somewhere Smart is going to offer Nexus 7 and the Nexus 4 soon. It’s best to wait before going on with Villman.

  11. cindy says:

    same specs as the us model?
    sa mga laptop kasi ng asus, kahit same model number, minsan ay lower specs

  12. ave says:

    sino gusto umorder ng nexus 7 3G? planning to have my vacation sa pinas next year probably out na yun nexus 3G. just mail me at [email protected] sa mga interested

  13. Lexty says:

    Nexus 4 will be available on the first week of December. Limited stocks lang daw sabi ng LG Philippines.. it will be priced @ P24,990

  14. cxx says:

    I confirmed that 13,995 is for cash payment only. :(

  15. David says:

    The going price in the US is about $250 (~ P10,200). Even discounting the VAT (which is probably included in the P13,995), it’s about a 24% markup here.

  16. I got my iPad mini here at nakakagulat na mas maganda talaga ang color saturation nito compared dito sa Nexus 7 ko,,hayssss

  17. marc says:

    i can get nexus 4 at 18-20K only!

  18. Phillip says:


  19. chopotka says:


    21K already included the 12% VAT, original price of Nexus 4 from Google Play Store UK is 279 pounds which is roughly 18K pesos.

  20. Tina says:

    Sa may nagbebenta 7k lang..

  21. Bar says:

    Holy Sh…..

    I just bought 16gb 2 Weeks ago, Now i want to sell it already, (if anyone intersted, hit me up) LOL

    Luckily OTG is working very well with it. So 32gb is not an issue to me, but damn now it support data network connection. that’s sucks.

  22. David says:

    Well, I was trying to compare the price with the 12% VAT excluded, but I think I miscalculated. P13,995 – 12% = P12,315 (20% markup pre-tax).

    You’re only only charged US state sales tax if you order something from a business that’s in your state. And some states have no sales tax, anyway. So its often not an issue for online purchases if you order from the right place.

  23. CPA121424 says:

    13,995 / 1.12 = 12,495. this

    is how you deduct the 12% VAT. roughly it’s a fair price. ayaw mo na patubuin supplier? lol

  24. ian says:

    Guys…yung mga nasa US diyan kung gusto niyo ng walang state tax and shipping fees, wait niyo magrelease ng nexus 4 ang, =)
