"Nexus 7: Curious" This commercial features a mother and her young daughter spending the day together. They are reading a [Curious George] book in eBook format on the Nexus 7 tablet, and the very imaginative little girl is enjoying the story about how the cute little monkey goes to space. During a break for lunch, mom cooks using a tablet for her recipe, and the girl blows bubbles in her milk, and creates a scene on the table with vegetables - grass made of peas, trees made of broccoli, clouds made of cauliflower, a sun made from a lemon slice, and a house made with the Nexus7 with a carrot roof. They come back to reading the book, and then take another break for a tea party (can you find the hidden Android at the tea party?). She uses the Nexus tablet and Google Voice to talk and share tea with her grandmother. More book, and then the girl pretends she is launching off through space. Her space suit consists of a snorkel mask and an air tank made from a two liter bottle. She plays a space flight game on the tablet while running around the house in her astronaut costume. She then uses a voice command to ask Google how far the moon is from the Earth (which, of course, it speaks back the answer). After reading the end of the book, she puts on another space suit costume and runs outside to play with her homemade moon landing and moon rover toys. This is George. He is a good little monkey and always very curious. One day George got an important letter. ... He's built a rocket ship to travel into space... it is just the right size for a clever monkey.
