It seems that some 1,000 contest winners in India who thought that they managed to win the latest Nexus 7 (2013 model) thanks to KitKat India were disappointed, especially after they were on the receiving end of the regular Nexus 7 – sans 2013, of course. Needless to say, there was plenty of winner rage if you ever saw one, and Nestle claimed that the Nexus 7 (2013) was not available during the time when the contest ended, which was a pretty fair explanation, actually.
After all, it is not as though the folks over at Nestle are involved in making consumer electronics, but rather, they are a confectionary company. This is definitely an oversight of sorts on their part, although legally speaking, they are correct in saying that the Nexus 7 (2013) was unavailable at the time when the contest period was over. Good thing that Nestle has a far bigger heart, and the company has decided to replace the older Nexus 7 with the Nexus 7 (2013) model, even giving out instructions to those who have already collected the Nexus 7. That is definitely a nice public relations coup, and I am quite sure that the winners would continue to snack on some delicious KitKat for many more years to come, don’t you think so? [Facebook Page]
