New Android commercial touts cloud syncing

New Android commercial touts cloud syncing
We've seen a whole bunch of commercials for the Galaxy Nexus, most of which Google has used to show off the new bells and whistles that are part of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but this time Google wants to show off a feature that has been a part of Android for a while now: cloud syncing. We're a little bit curious why Google is putting this out now instead of using it to counteract Apple's marketing machine back when iCloud was announced last June. 

Google has been syncing contacts, calendar, apps, and settings for a while in Android, and of course there is also syncing for Docs, photos, books, music, and any other Google product you may use. Of course, Google has never been all that great with its marketing campaigns, especially when it comes to counteracting competitor marketing, dispelling inaccurate press, or predicting user concerns. Still, it's pretty fun to see the Android mascot as an orchestra conductor.

I have to agree with you, I don't have anything against Android, but I also don't like this commercial. :/

I agree - there was nothing childish about the video - I wonder if that poster actually watched it, or maybe is legally blind.

I have been using this since 2010. You can also sync call logs and messages (SMS), using third party apps, to your Google account. I do not sync photos and have those on my PC with an every Sunday manual sync. TiBu is also great with syncing apps and data, call logs and all messages to a cloud with TiBu sync.
