Chris Bosh: NBA All-Star, funny guy, Nexus One impresario. When Bosh isn’t busy crashing the boards for the Toronto Raptors, he’s thinking up ways to improve the first Android phone produced by Google.
In a promotional video uploaded to Chris Bosh’s YouTube channel, Bosh shares his thoughts for a few Android app ideas that he ran by Google’s team of engineers. Some suggestions didn’t quite make the cut, but Bosh was obviously pleased by the results. Here’s Bosh openly talking about the lofty goals he had for the Nexus One that the Google team couldn’t quite make a reality.
Google doesn’t seem too interested in advertising the Nexus One in traditional mediums like print, television, and radio. I’ve yet to see any promotion in those typical arenas, though I have seen a ton of Google text ads, banners on websites, and YouTube. The video starring Bosh seems to be another attempt at a viral hit. Will that spark sales?
