Commercials for Google’s Nexus 7 and Samsung’s 10.1-inch Galaxy Note have appeared online in the last day. And as you might have already guessed, both take different approaches on how to convince you to buy their tablet.
The commercial for the still unreleased Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is aimed squarely at the business crowd. Boasting the tablet’s 10.1-inch “multi” screen for multitasking and special properties of the S Pen, Samsung uses their Note 10.1 commercial to take us through the afternoon of a hot-shot businessman and how the Note fits into his life.
I imagine this will be just one of many commercials for the Note 10.1 once the tablet is made available. Hopefully future ads will target a broader audience. For now, Samsung is going after a very clear demographic:
The commercial for the Nexus 7 has a much more human feel than the Note 10.1 commercial, clearly intended to tug at the heart strings of families across the web.
Featuring a father and son camping with the Nexus 7, the commercial shows a family using the tablet to enhance their bonding experience. Reading books, watching a movie, playing checkers, looking up wild animals; the Nexus 7 can do it all (and without a constant data connection?).
Whether or not this commercial will make its way to television remains to be seen, but I have a good feeling it will.
Now that you’ve seen both commercials, which one do you like best?
