Anand Mahindra's Keen On Buying A Pixel Soon Despite Buying The iPhone 15: Here's Why

In a recent tweet that caught the attention of tech enthusiasts and industry leaders alike, Anand Mahindra, the Chairman of the Mahindra Group, shared a personal experience that underscores his bullish stance on India’s burgeoning role in global manufacturing and also why he’d likely buy a Google Pixel smartphone soon, despite recently buying an iPhone 15.

What Happened? Mahindra narrated an incident from a Verizon store in the U.S., where he proudly announced that his iPhone 15 was “Made in India”, much to the surprise of the salesperson. But what stood out was his anticipation of soon owning a Google Pixel, also manufactured in India. “By then,” Mahindra mused, “India will have been globally acknowledged as a manufacturing powerhouse.”

Why the enthusiasm? The industrialist’s thoughts arrive on the back of Google’s plans to kickstart its Pixel smartphone production in India by 2024. The move is seen as a testament to India’s rapidly growing reputation as a reliable and cost-effective manufacturing hub, attracting global tech giants to set up shop.

Mahindra’s tweet not only reflects personal pride but also captures the broader sentiment of India’s industrial community. As more global brands pivot to India for manufacturing, the country is poised to redefine its position in the global supply chain. The days of “Made in India” becoming a common label on global products might just be around the corner.
