After we’ve seen the first Google Nexus 7 commercial, and the plethora of unboxing videos that have one thing in common – plenty of issues opening the tablet’s box – we’re now treated with an official Google video on how to perform the initial setup on the Jelly Bean device.
Users who already own an Android device will not find the video embedded below that interesting, but those customers who are new to the platform, and chose the Nexus 7 as their first Android-based gadget, should definitely watch the 75-second “Getting Started” introduction clip. The video shows them all they need to do to start using the device from the moment they take it out of the box – no matter how long that step will take.
At the same time, we’ll notice the fact that Google places a lot of emphasis on Google Play, its digital content store that offers access to apps, movies, TV shows and music, and which is how the company hopes to make money off Nexus 7 buyers – well, in addition to all the advertising money its customers will bring in from browsing the web on the device.
The video even ends with an interesting tag line, which, again, reminds buyers to check out the store: “Nexus 7, the playground is open.”
