The Nexus 7 is a pretty nifty device, but when Google employee Raj Hathiramani gave it to his girlfriend on July 4, well, it was a little bit extra special.

In addition to pre-loading it with all of Aditi Gupta’s favourite apps, books, movies and music, it also had a rather moving video, shown below.

That’s right, Raj is most likely the first (and only) person to propose using the new Google tablet. It’s a very touching video, involving many of the pair’s closest friends, families and colleagues. It’s also pretty long, with some time lapse sequences – not to mention those ‘I heart Aditi’ t-shirts – that must have taken a fair amount of time produce!

It’s yet another fantastic example of how technology can be used for people to express how they feel to one another. The team at TNW would like to say a massive congratulations to Raj and Aditi on their engagement.
