Surprise: Google’s Home Page Promoting Nexus One

Nexus One on Google.com

If you visit Google.com today, you will see that they are showing a promotion for the Nexus One. The promotion is found under the search box and reads, “Experience Nexus One, the new Android phone from Google.”

As we saw in Danny’s live blogging of the event, yesterday – Google said they would use Google.com to push this device. They did so for the Verizon/Motorola Droid, so of course they will do it for their own device.

The link takes you to google.com/phone, as you would expect.

Here are some past ads/promotions on the Google home page:

Droid on Google.com

G1 on Google.com

Worlds AIDs Day on Google.com

Chrome on Google.com

Postscript from Greg Sterling: Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster calculated the value of the Nexus One placement on Google’s homepage to be worth between $4 and $5 million (at a $15 or $20 CPM) if it were an ad that had to be bought.
