KitKat Android promotion winners in India to get Nexus 7 2013 after all

The KitKat Android promotion that had taken place in various countries around the world including the US and Canada, was carried out in India as well. And while the company advertised the campaign by promising the Google Nexus 7 2013 to contest winners in the subcontinent, people received the 2012 version of the tablet instead. But now, the chocolate company has announced through its Facebook page that it will be replacing the old model with the new one for the participants who won.

Last week, KitKat tweeted that the contest started in September and the new device came to India only in November in order to justify sending out the old version of the device. But it has now gone back on its word and has revealed via the official Facebook page that winners can expect the device that was promised.
