Google Music, TV, Magazines not coming in time for UK Nexus 7

While everybody is excited about the release of Google Nexus 7, tech enthusiasts and Android lovers in the UK couldn’t just fully relate to it knowing that Google Music, Magazines and TV will not be available for the new device upon release except for US owners. Reports indicating of the delay of these new services have already been confirmed by Google on Wednesday, July 4th.

Aside from the impressive specs of Nexus 7, Google has been touting of the new categories making its newest device the best alternative to any mobile entertainment hub available in the market today. Experts and analysts believe the search titan may just take the lead in the mobile market for integrating music, TV shows and magazines to its powerful quad-core device.

As much as Google wants to gain momentum in the European market, it couldn’t if these three categories will remain exclusive to the American market. A Google representative said briefly that Nexus 7’s UK variant will “feature all of the options currently available in the UK Play store.” In other words, owners will be have access to movies, apps from the Play Store, books and games; the usual services any Android owner can enjoy.

Google didn’t actually elaborate the real reason why the new services will be delayed in the UK but it is reportedly due to licensing requirements. With this, we can almost be certain that it may take a few weeks before Google TV, Google Music and Google Magazine will be launched in the UK and the rest of Europe.

The new Google Nexus 7 sports the popular ARM-based quad-core processor, Nvidia Tegra 3, and will come packed with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system pre-installed. As of this writing, Nexus 7 is the only Jelly Bean-capable device which Google boasts about. The fact that it will be marketed at a lower price range, perhaps the lowest for a Tegra 3 device, it may just perform well in the market and poses a great threat to high-end devices available today.
