Have you seen the newest Google commercial? Titled "New Baby", the ad shows off the 10-inch Nexus tablet. The commercial features a couple who're expecting a baby, and Google has picked this premise to show off the features on the Jelly Bean-running tablet. In the 60 second commercial, Google has shown off popular Jelly Bean features like multiple user accounts – the couple is shown logging into their separate accounts and when their baby is finally born, he gets an account too. The to-be parents use the tablet to keep their friends and family informed about the development, look for a suitable name and make necessary Google searches to pick the best one. Other features like Google Calendar, video chats, Google Hangouts and ability to download books make an appearance. In essence, the ad aims to capture the shareability factor of the Nexus 10 tablet.
If you haven’t watched it already, you can below:
The Nexus 10, which has been co-manufactured with Samsung, has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels with a density of 300 ppi. Google states that the battery life of the tablet stands at 500 hours of standby time and nine hours of video playback. The inclusion of Android v4.2 allows you to add multiple users, making it the first Android tablet that is truly shareable.
Google announced the Nexus 10 tablet alongside its Nexus 4 smartphone, the Nexus 7 tablet and the newest flavour Android v4.2 Jelly Bean in October last year. Android v4.2 brings great goodies such as Gesture Typing, which lets you glide your finger over the letters you want to type on the keyboard — thus adding the functionality of the Swype keyboard into the stock Android keyboard. Android v4.2 also adds support for wireless display so you can wirelessly watch movies, YouTube videos and play games right on a Miracast-compatible HDTV.
Another major feature of the latest version of Android is the update to Google Now, a service that Google had introduced with the Jelly Bean version of the Android operating system. Google has added more features to Google Now. The service can now alert you of flight and hotel recommendations as well as about nearby attractions, photo spots, and movie and concert timings.
At the time, Google had also announced the expansion of its Google Play service, bringing more content to more countries. The company partnered with Twentieth Century Fox, Time, People, InStyle and others to bring more TV shows, movies and magazines to the service. Along with this, Google has partnered with Warner Music Group to add its complete music catalogue with new songs being added every day.
