KitKat Nexus 7 Winners in India cheated ??

Why KitKat gave away Nexus 7 "2012" instead of promised Nexus 7 "2013" ?

See the above picture. On to the left is the specification of Nexus 7 (2012) 16GB from Flipkart and to the right is the snapshot of the package shipped to Kitkat winners. Compare the part number and other details, and you know it is Nexus 7 (2012) 16GB version that is being given away to Kitkat Winners in India.

An image comparison of the Nexus 7 (2013 and 2012 releases) below, as seen on Google Playstore:

Nexus 7 and Nexus 7 (2012)

But all KitKat Nexus 7 winners (898 total) were expecting an All new Nexus 7 2013 version in their hand as written and displayed on Kitkat India website and their official facebook page. See image below:

" first 1000 in India to receive the all new exclusive Nexus 7 tablet ?? "

And they clearly state on their official facebook page about which tablet the KitKat winners would be receiving. See Below image:

Are they receiving "This" tablet ??

So why was the picture of new Nexus 7 (2013) shown on promo images everywhere when they had planned to giveaway the old stock Nexus 7 (2012) ?? Many of the contestants purchased over 500 plus KitKats packs, believing that they would get the "all new exclusive Nexus 7" 2013 but in the end could not win. They must be extremely disappointed after hearing this news.

Some critical keywords that clearly define the prize as Nexus 7 (2013)

You can clearly see some of the Key words in the promos above that gave an impression that indeed the Nexus 7 (2013) would be given away as prize.

Giving the Winners in India a broken Heart ??

A Lame excuse given by Kitkat India at Twitter:

Google, do something before this news spreads like fire in social media !! and gives a bad name to Android KITKAT 4.4. Everyone knows that such contests play with the T&C line, but this case was a shocker to everyone who participated and contributed to this promo contest.`

LATEST UPDATE: Kitkat India finally listens and agrees to giveaway the promised Nexus 7 (2013) tablet !
