Ardent fans are contemplating on the recent Google gimmick that publicizes its Nexus 7 tablet. Traditionalists are against this uncommon move by the global search engine incorporation, citing it as a diversion from its belief to display an ad-free Main Page. Similar to the Kindle Fire ad strategy followed by Amazon.com, this budge from the popular Google stance has reduced favor amongst its faithful users.
Google Seeking Front Page Attention
The scandalous pop-up advertisement features a slogan alongside the cost of the Nexus 7 tablet, with a peek-a-boo screen shot of just the topmost part of the gadgets, which is visible. Such display by Google is not a new stunt but an infrequent occurrence in its history of front-page attention-seeking trick. Millions of users access Google’s home page and this feat will certainly not go unnoticed.
Nexus 7 Mobile Device
The Nexus 7 mobile device, manufactured by the company Asus is the first Google Android (Jelly Bean) tablet. The corporation had earlier released this gadget in U.S. and U.K. and has currently freed it in Spain, Germany, and France. Priced similar to Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet at $199, the Nexus 7 gadget, has anticipated better sales prospective.
It is up to Google, to create a niche in the tablet market and to come up with innovative ideas to take over strong-holders. With the consumers eagerly looking forward to the release of Apple’s iPad Mini and new Kindle Fire version, it is still to be seen whether Google will benefit by this stray advertising act.
