Nexus 7 ad gets featured on Google.com: "The playground is open"
The Nexus 7 ad appears right under the search bar and is neatly animated. It seems that it only appears for US users and this makes sense - after all, the Nexus 7 was first made available stateside, and only a couple of days ago crossed the pond to arrive in say Europe.
Featuring an ad for one of its own products isn’t new for Google, though. We’ve seen Google Chrome and the HTC-made Nexus One appear on ads on Google’s home page previously, and the Nexus 7 is definitely one of the devices that deserves its place there. Want to know why?

The father and son advertisement on television right now is one of the best I've seen... Classy and cute. Good job Google... Keep it up.

Kind of unreleated note, but can you guys check out the Nabi 2 tablet? It seems to be pound for pound VERY similar to Nexus 7 (a couple key differences, its tegra 3 but at 1.3 instead of 1.4 ghz, same ram, same screen size, 1024x600 instead o 1280x800, has microsd slot instead of no slot, comes with a decent bumper case for it, ICS instead of JB, 2MP instead of 1.3MP Front Cam, and has some preloaded "kids" apps.) Its advertised as a kids tablet, but the specs are pretty good for the price. I would personally go with a Nexus 7 myself but maybe good for someone that would rather have the expandable microsd storage and otherwise similar specs?
Just curious cuz I saw they had that at my walmart (But not the Nexus 7) and when I played around with it it seemed to work pretty smoothly, but yea.

seems to be the same price - do not plan on it receiving updates, like the Nexus, but I could see this as an alternative to those kids who think that they need an ipad to have fun.
