New Galaxy Nexus commercial calls on "social MCs"

New Galaxy Nexus commercial calls on
We are definitely liking the ads that Google is producing for its newest pure Google experience phone, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The newest ad shows off Google+ Hangouts in an interesting way.

The ad definitely shows how hard Google is pushing to shed the uber-geek label that has been put on the Nexus line of devices. While we're sure there are geeks out there who like to beatbox, there probably isn't too much overlap. This ad is definitely trying to paint the Galaxy Nexus as a "cool" device by showing a pretty unique use. We definitely love Google+ Hangouts, and the wide array of things that can be done in them. Musicians have been doing some cool things in Hangouts, so why not a beatboxing party?

We would have trouble finding 9 people we know who can beatbox, but maybe you guys know some talented folk.

Google needs to put more ads like this out, stop having OEMs put out ads that show off no features that make it a google phone.

Actually we should leave it up to the providers. Because if they don't I won't be able to fight off robots with processors and LTE radios.

The GSM variant of the Nexus has a pentaband radio that should work on any carrier around the world. Not officially available for purchase in the States, but you can still grab one from Expansys. It\'s expensive though.

Yay an add that actually shows some interesting hilightgs of a device . Google needs to tell people more about Android and its features before they have no features to brag about. Of someone brags about them for them. -NFC -New dictation -backups - Google music and cloud services - Google maps talk and latitude - Google wallet There are quite a few stuff they should show people about and how it makes their life easy
