Is Google Planning To Advertise The Nexus S On TV?

Ignoring for a moment the fact that this commercial, if you watched it blindfolded, could easily be mistaken as an ad for the iPhone, it’s actually pretty wonderful.  While we can’t say for sure that we’re looking at an actual TV spot for the Nexus S here, it certainly gives off that aura.

Hoping to not get lost in today’s Nexus S news cycle is a report by analyst Shaw Wu of Kaufman Bros who believes that Verizon will pay to keep the iPhone away from Sprint and T-Mobile.  I believe it’s safe to say that analyst opinions like this are often steeped in fantasy more so than fact but it’s an interesting proposition.  Where we take issue with the logic is that Wu believes Android has … [read full article]
