I don’t have my own Nexus 7 tablet to unbox (I’m waiting for the iPad mini, of course), but I’ve been able to experience the event — vicariously and hilariously — through good old YouTube.
Android Market rebranding or not, the thing just doesn’t want to come out and play:
Apparently, Google and Asus don’t take packaging quite as seriously as Apple (or, in turn, Samsung) when it comes to the all-important first impression. Of course, most of these amateur unboxers probably should’ve had a knife at the ready, as fingernails and blunt, plastic collar stays a blade do not make.
This kind of makes me want to buy a Nexus 7 just to see how hard it really is to open the box.
Thanks to YouTuber JLishere for the comical compilation.
