An Indian fan asked Samsung India about the launch of the Galaxy Nexus in India, "The Galaxy Nexus will not be launched in India. Watch this space for the next big thing!", is what he got in return. Now, this is disturbing, isn't it?. It is more disturbing that Samsung India had earlier tweeted about a January launch, then it got delayed till March and now suddenly company says no we won’t release it at all..!! Samsung, be a man of your

Even though India has been a large market for various products and services, Samsung still chooses to abort the launch. This will definitely affect the sales graph of the Nexus as Samsung and Android have fairly large number of fans and users in India. I would term this as a "costly mistake" by Samsung.
