Ever since Google started, the Google homepage has been purposely sparse. Just a logo and a search box. And for all the money Google has made on advertising, they’ve never even considered selling a single square of the Google homepage for advertising. But from now until October, when the iPad mini is expected to debut, they’re using that incredibly valuable space to push the Nexus 7 tablet. Hey, it’s their space… it could work.
Google has finally decided to step into the iPad dominated tablet world, and it is about damn time. Most of the Android flavored tablets have been absolute crap, with the exception of a select few. Fortunately Google partnered with ASUS for the Nexus 7 to create high quality tablet at an absolutely stellar price. It is important to keep in mind that this 7” tablet is in no way a direct competitor to the iPad, but it does put Google into a position where they may be able to with the introduction of a rumored 10” tablet later this year. For now though, we have the Google Nexus 7.
