Nexus 7 and Galaxy Note 10.1 commercials debut online

Nexus 7 commercial

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?

    Different tablets, different target audiences. I’m glad the Nexus7 is looking for mass adoption as an entertainment device. It’ll eventually address one Android’s biggest perceived weaknesses by attracting more developers to polish up tablet-optimized apps … not that I find the space lacking for my own needs.

    Ordered one this weekend. Trading in my not so desirable Acer Iconia for it.

    Ha! The Nexus 7′s add was aimed right at me. I’ve done that same thing with my son. I hate camping (without WiFi).

  • Prince77

        SwiftKey 3 error by any chance? I get that constantly since the update too.

  • txbluesman

    Nice to see some ads show up from Google for this great device. I am loving mine. Can’t put it down.

    The Nexus 7: designed for humans.

  • dVyper

    I genuinely cant imagine anyone who doesnt know anything about the 7 wanting to buy it after seeing this advert. “Oh, yet another tablet? Pass”

  • fletchtb

    I don’t know if I could go back to a 10 inch tablet. 7in seems to be the right size for me.

    Plus, I liked the Nexus 7 commercial better.

  • spazby

    after playing around with nexus 7 for a few days, i think i am done with 10 inch tablets… it is way more convenient and the screen is big enough

  • michaely

    Data connection wasn’t a problem… cause they were camping in their own backyard! lol, that was funny- see the last scene at the end, where dad is putting out the fire, you see the two houses right there.

  • MoSDeeb

    I’d like to see the GSP unboxing on tv.

  • Anjie Cai

    • spazby
