How many people does it take to unbox a Google Nexus 7?
posted by Nick T. / Jul 17, 2012, 6:53 AM
The first Google Nexus 7 unboxing videos have already hit the interwebs, and those who have seen them have probably noticed that getting your hands on the device inside is harder than one would imagine. YouTube user JLishere has apparently noticed the pattern as well and decided to make a little fun of that phenomenon.
He put together a series of Google Nexus 7 unboxing videos, thus making the process seem a bit like solving a level 5 Hanayama puzzle. Did Google and Asus intentionally make opening the tablet's box so tricky? In contrast, Apple devotes special attention to the packaging of its devices, which is why unboxing an iPad or an iPhone, for example, is as enjoyable as opening a present.
We have embedded the aforementioned montage below, so feel free to check it out. Don't forget to drop a line in the comments below for us if it made you giggle.

Can you make your mind up, earlier on a post you were slagging off Apple, now you're all supportive of them? You've done it before too commenting IPHONE!!!! on an article, then a few articles later saying the iphone sucks? seriously dude! Make your mind up.

I can tell what's wrong with half of those unboxings already... 1. Push bottom to slide box out of cover. 2. Use sharp object and cut tapes on both sides. Don't rip it, I don't know why people even try. 3. Lay flat. 4. Use your both thumbs, index, and middle fingers to pinch where 3 corners meet on opposite sides. 5. Lift.

I heard that companies make packaging difficult on purpose (think blister packs for SD cards or jewel cases for CDs) becuase when the customer finally gets it out and can use it it is more rewarding. Similar to Christmas wrapping, it's like a gift. The more you struggle to open it the more you will enjoy it when it's out of the packaging.

my wife unboxed hers in like 10 seconds start to finish without an issue. Seriously, these guys are supposed to be "professionals". I had to explain to my wife why I was laughing while she unboxed it because she did it so quickly.. lol.
