Google CEO Larry Page urges investors to buy the Nexus 7
Santa Clara, CA, United States (4E) – Google chief executive officer Larry Page didn’t mince any words talking to investors during its third quarter earnings call. He made it clear that investors “should all run out and buy the Nexus 7 for $199.” Page highlighted the Nexus’ favorable reviews from popular tech websites. He reminded investors that gadget expert T3 named Nexus the “Gadget of the Year.”
Page proudly told investors some of the features the Nexus 7 has. He highlighted its hardware capabilities and multi-screen environment.
“In short, as we transition from one screen to multiscreens, Google has enormous opportunities to innovate and drive ever higher monetization. Just like Search in 2000,” Page said during the conference call.
Page also added that users can sync information using Chrome on Android between two different devices. Many people didn’t believe the Android operating system would be successful when it first launched. Now, it’s featured on smartphones manufactured by Samsung, HTC and Sony Ericsson. It’s also the choice of tablets not named iPad.
“We believed that aligning standards around an open source operating system would drive innovation across the industry. Most people thought we were nuts. Today there are over half a billion Android devices with 1.3 million more being activated every day,” Page added.
