While much of the focus has been on the Nexus 5 this week, Google hasn't forgotten about the Nexus 7. In fact, Google has recently posted a few new Nexus 7 promo videos on YouTube. These latest include In Play and Center Stage and they are following up the Best Friend and Study Hall videos we saw a few weeks earlier.

Anyway, these latest two are both clocking in at 30-seconds in length and they are focused on gaming and reading. The In Play video offers a look at a wide variety of potential users. From adults sitting in airports to some older gentleman using the Nexus 7 to play chess in a restaurant. Simply put, Google is making an effort to show that the Nexus 7 can be a good casual game system for users of all ages.

As mentioned, Center Stage is highlighting reading. But more specifically, Google is using this one to push the ebooks that are available in the Play Store -- of which, Google notes how "from classics to bestsellers. Nexus 7 brings you the world's largest collection of eBooks on Google Play." And similar to the In Play video, Google shows this as being good for a wide variety of different users.

Otherwise, while Google is continuing to push the Nexus 7 tablet, T-Mobile is also doing the same. The carrier recently launched pre-orders and is expected to begin shipping the Nexus 7 on November 20th. The LTE model of the Nexus 7 is priced at $349 direct from the Play Store and T-Mobile will be offering it with no money down and 24 monthly payments of $16. That does amount to a bit of a premium (actually, a $35 premium), but we suppose some will be happier to grab the tablet with the monthly payments.

    If we’re going to get N10 resolution on smartphones next year, can we have a UD 4k, at 7″, a N7 UD, 14 nm, 64 bit, GRAM, will take us from the current play /record UD into UD gaming territory. :-).
