Nexus 6, Nexus 9 and Android L show up in a leaked ad: 'Be Together, Not The Same'
posted by Victor H. / Oct 14, 2014, 3:35 AM
The Nexus 6 and Nexus 9 along with the newest version of the Android L platform seem to be right around the corner, as all rumors point to an official unveiling tomorrow, and ads for the new Nexus family have just leaked out. These ad spots highlight a new ‘be together, not the same’ motto that is a perfect explanation of Google’s Android device philosophy.
Looking at the first commercial, the Nexus 6 (aka Nexus X, or Motorola ‘Shamu’) seems to be the gigantic device at the end, and it comes with a clear message - it’s not for everyone, and that’s so by design. It’s this kind of diversity that Google seems to embrace widely with such an extreme form factor. To freshen up your mind, the Nexus 6 is expected to come with a 5.9-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560-pixel) display, a 13-megapixel optically stabilized camera, the latest Snapdragon 805 system chip by Qualcomm, and Android L, of course. In fact, you can see the new navigation buttons on the phone testifying to it running the latest version of Google’s operating system.
The Nexus 9 also makes a short cameo in another leaked ad spot for the same ‘be together, not the same’ ad campaign (in the hands of the blond beard guy), but there is much less that you can see about it.
Rumors point out that Google will unveil the Nexus 9 tomorrow, along with a new version of the Android Wear platform (Wear 2.0), and likely shed light on developments in Android TV. You can see it all come together in the third and last, 'Dance Party' ad spot right below.

Kind of weird, but not bad overall. Can't wait to see what they will release, hoping for a refresh on the N5 as well.

Be together not the same doesn't work. Yes it disses the same isheep quite well but the together part doesn't fit. The Android OEMS hate and have no respect for one another. Especially the ones jealous of Samsung being the only one making decent coin.

You're reading too deep into the message. You just turn a party into a land of hate.

Amazing song choices for the last two commercials, and they're all adorable. I really hope these ads air; not that Android really needs a ton more exposure, but marketing IS something Google's always fell short on with Android.

Since these are developer devices why does Google need to advertise them?

I am a nexus fan but these ads are very off-putting to me, because the art is way too post South Park coopted for phone commercialization soullessness, and the voice track creeps me out. Even the motto squanders a good concept, it should be, "Come together, we're different here."

Surface 3 > Nexus 9 Sorry buddy, but the Surface Pro 3 is a tablet. You can't say otherwise. Sure it's expensive, but it can actually do stuff PC's can & do stuff iOS & Android tablets can't!

Except once you use an iPad air sized tablet, you can't use a 13 inch one as comfortably. But hey, I agree. If the surface ever gets a 10 inch surface pro mini that is as light and same size as an IOS or android tablet and gets the official playstore, I'll never use a non surface pro tablet again. Right now it's still too big and defeats the purpose of the tablet. Convenience .

I find these ads to be OK. I'm just not sure what the general public would think. Most people don't know a lot about mobile technology. If you don't know what Android is, the ads that doesn't show a mobile device may not mean anything to you. Only the bus stop one actually prominently shows a phone.

I agree. Seems like a lot of people don't know what android is. I have a few friends who call it "droid," (but they're thinking of the phone) and other's who don't even know that the Galaxy series of phones are Android phones. Brand recognition is important!
