Google delays Nexus Q home entertainment device
To make up for the delay, Google plans to send the gadget free to everyone who pre-ordered it.
Google is not saying when the Nexus Q will available. Google plans to sell it for $299 in the U.S. The ball-shaped device is similar to Apple TV, a small box that can stream music and movies over Internet connections. But the Apple TV is only $99.
Google announced the Nexus Q along with the Nexus 7 tablet at the Google I/O developers conference in June. One of the product's selling points is that it will be manufactured in the United States.
The Nexus Q sends content from your own collection or from YouTube to your existing TV and speaker systems. You control it through a separate Android phone or tablet. Google has called it the first social streaming device.
