A few days ago we reported on a less-than-ideal situation over in India, where users who won Nexus 7s in Google's/Nestle's KitKat contest were receiving the 2012 model instead of the "new Nexus 7" as advertised. Naturally, users were outraged and insulted by this gesture and spoke out against both companies. Today, Nestle has taken to its KitKat India Facebook page to let users know that it plans on righting this wrong.

It looks like the public outcry made a huge difference here, as the company will be sending the correct model Nexus 7 to all winners – even those who have already received last year's model. If you happen to be one of those winners, look for some sort of communication on how to swap yours out in the near future.

It's not often that we see a major corporation do the right thing, especially where contest winners and prizes are concerned. Good on ya for fixing this up, Nestle.

Thanks for sending this in, Varum, Manu, and Rishabh!!
