Google pulls an Apple with its (slightly misleading) Nexus 7 ad


Google’s having no problems getting its Nexus 7 tablet out the door to tech geeks — yesterday we learned that the 16 gigabyte model has sold out due to high demand. Now Google is getting ready to target the average buyer with its first Nexus 7 TV commercial.

The ad shows a father and son bonding over the 7-inch tablet during a camping trip. It feels a lot more human than Google’s previous ads (though some of its Google+ ads were getting there), and in many ways it could be mistaken for a heartwarming Apple ad. And just like Apple’s Siri ads, it projects a very idealized (and almost fantastical) view of the product.

  1. Great article. I have actually reviewed the actual Nexus and also the different tablets in
    they have range and found it to become far outstanding if you want to
    from what you find dollar for dollar. I’ve read alot of evaluations that seem to bash the particular Nexus for what it does not have. In my opinion it comes down to personal preference.
