The Nexus Q device was recently announced with some expecting that its launch date would follow shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, this may not be the case as it appears that Google is taking their media streamer back to the drawing board so as to be able to make some hardware changes. What exact changes are coming have not been revealed in future releases of this device.
By taking the device off the table, the Nexus Q official consumer launch will be delayed, but by how much is not known at this time. Those that have pre-ordered their device already need not worry as the company has confirmed that all pre-orders will ship on time and at no cost. However, while the Nexus Q is in the “shop”, Google will look to add additional features to their product.
For those that aren’t very familiar with Google’s latest product, the Nexus Q is a media streamer and has the ability to stream digital content from a couple of different Google properties including YouTube, Google Music and Google Play. The device also integrates well with other Android 2.3 or higher devices with the ability of being controlled by one of the aforementioned devices.
So far, the Nexus Q has had a short but interesting story. Though initial reviews were more a wait and see approach, it is worth noting that Google was completely out of their inventory within 24 hours after the device went on sale.
