Google posts official Nexus 6 and 9 promo videos
Pictures are all well and good, but you just don't get the same experience that you can with videos. We've all seen plenty of pictures of the new Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, but Google has also posted official promo videos for the two devices. Unfortunately, both videos feature renders of the devices and not the actual hardware itself, but they still offer solid representations of what to expect.

The videos are fairly bare-bones, and you probably know what to expect from them. They each give the basic breakdown of key specs for each device, while showing the devices floating and spinning through space. A couple items to note in the Nexus 6 video are the textured power button, just like the new Moto X, and the Motorola logo on the back, which unlike the new Moto X is part of the back plate, rather than a separate piece. The profile of the phone also makes it look like it doesn't taper down at the edges quite as much as the Moto X. 

With the Nexus 9, we're definitely digging the color options, and it is pretty cool to see the keyboard cover in motion. We'd like to see more on how adjustable the angle will be though, because it does appear to be somewhat limited. What do you guys think?

The AMOLED display of the Nexus 6 is interesting. At least for the moment, it seems like the only way to get battery life with QHD screens.

Looks like a blown up Nexus 5 with a metal band around the body. Kinda like this design over the Nexus 6. Would've been interesting to see this in a smaller form for the 6. This is what I don't like about Google going to different third parties to manufacture their products, the two just don't look uniform together, unlike iPhone/iPad, and Galaxy/Tab which have similar attributes.

Not at all. Apple have their hands on flicking the device about, with a voice in the background and the device stays very central of the screen, it's all simple and doesn't really explain much, but gets across a single feature of the device. This is also simple, but all about specs and seeing the device all over. I like these new adverts from Google, including the Android ones. It's a new fun, modern style, and it seems fitting :D

The tablet looks just like an iPad, even down to the protruding camera, and symmetry of bezels.

the protruding camera likely won't tilt the tablet when on a flat surface since the back seems to be curved at the edges so the protruding lens is likely the same thickness as the middle of the tablet rear back cover.

Im so happy Motorola decided to bring back the original dimple. The Nexus 6 is beautiful.

So if you can't make it, you won't be able to incorporate it in a device? What kinda logic is that?
