Google Promoting Nexus Tablet On Homepage

Google is showing an animated, very prominent ad for the Nexus 7 tablet on its homepage today. The tablet has sold well though Google hasn’t shared any official numbers. But for a time the 8GB model sold out. And there are third party data to suggest the Nexus 7 is doing well.

The Nexus 7 has been very well reviewed and be designated the strongest Android tablet challenger to the iPad.

The Nexus 7 currently comes in two versions: 8GB ($199) and 16GB ($249). Apple is widely expected (almost certain) to introduce a smaller version of the iPad (the iPad Mini) in October. In addition, Amazon is also supposed to be launching Kindle Fire 2.0 and perhaps a larger 10-inch version of the tablet next month.

With this new promotion, Google may be trying to get out in front of those expected product announcements.

    In the last few years people have become nostalgic about the simplicity and clean UI that Google used to have. Obviously ads being a major factor. This is certainly going in the wrong direction. But hey, they have to make money…
