Video: Nexus 7 unboxing montage


As we all patiently await the delivery of our Nexus 7 tablets from Google and ASUS, what better way to kill the time than by watching a Nexus 7 unboxing montage. The following video is making its way around the internets at the moment, and it’s frankly hilarious to watch. We’re having a good old time watching folks struggle to get the Nexus 7 out of a tightly-packaged box, and we thought you might enjoy it as well.

Anyone out there gotten their hands on the Nexus 7 yet? Let us know how you’re enjoying it by leaving a comment below.

Is this the best damn video you’ll watch today? Probably.

    What not to bring to an unboxing: a dull piece of plastic.

  • Prince77

    LOL, I needed that laugh big time. You should always have a knife or something sharp to cut the tape and a butter knife to loosen up the box

  • nomad68

  • Taylor

    Tempted to do a slick, get-it-right-on-the-first-try unboxing video myself. Nobody owns an x-acto knife?

    Just barely got my Nexus 7!! Almost bought it from CL last night for $290 (16GB) since it was supposedly sold out everywhere, did some more Google searching and found 10 in stock in Microcenter (Tustin, CA), researched/drooled over it a little more, then decided to buy it the next morning and went to bed thinking the 10 availability wasn’t gonna change much. Some reason woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t go back to sleep thinking about the Nexus 7, then around 7am something told me I should just buy it online and pick it up at the store before going to work when it opens at 10am. Checked online again on Microcenter’s website and shockingly it said Availability: 1 !!!!! That put me in a mixed panic/sad/FML mood, LOL. Thinking it was probably the display model, I hesitated to buy their last one in stock, but I got up from bed and made the purchase online for $249+tax (16GB). Then checked availability and said it was unavailable, so that told me their database is real-time. Got ready for work, grabbed a banana, got to the store 40 minutes early, waited in the parking lot in my car while I ate my banana and watch a few dudes pull up and wait in their cars for the store to up open up. Store opened exactly at 10am, wasn’t much of a line, just some dudes standing around the entrance with me being the second person entering lol, went straight to the pick-up center, lady asked my last name, saw her grab a box sitting by itself, showed her my ID, she gave me my new Nexus 7, looked new and sealed, she gave me my receipt, I said thank you and left to work! Now I’m at work without a wifi connection trying to logon to my device without sucesses, but still happy to GET THE LAST ONE IN STORES!! The device is nice and solid, screen looks amazing, can’t wait to go home now for lunch to use my home wifi and play wiht it some more.
    :D :D :D :D
