Nexus 4, Nexus 10, Nexus 7 ad released with emphasis on Google Search, Google Now [video]

The first Nexus ad showing all of Google’s recently announced devices (the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and new Nexus 7 versions) has been released by Google with a huge emphasis on Search. Entitled “Nexus: Ask Me Anything,” the 60-second clip shows us various Search-related instances during day-to-day activities.

As you already know, Search is Google’s main revenue stream and the main reason it created Android, to have an edge on competitors when the time comes – and considering the impressive number of mobile devices out there, the time has come where mobile search is more and more important for search engines, ad companies and everyone else that’s trying to sell their products online.

With Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google has overhauled its Search app to offer better results to users, including several nifty features such as the Knowledge Graph, search-by-voice support and the Google Now virtual assistant. These features have been further improved in Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, so we shouldn’t be surprised to see Search taking a centric role in this first ad.

But the fact is that smartphones and tablets, no matter what OS they run, are used for so much more than just searching the web for stuff, aren’t they?

What Nexus device are you buying this holiday season?

    Now I wish I had actually waited a month so that instead of getting the Galaxy Nexus I could get the LG Nexus. I still can sell my Nexus at around $300 to get most of the money to buy the new one. I can also wait and actually see what’s worth buying and what’s not.
