Google delays Nexus Q, no timing given
Wednesday - 8/1/2012, 3:19pm EDT
NEW YORK (AP) - Google says it is delaying the Nexus Q, a home entertainment device that was supposed to come out in July.
To make up for the delay, Google Inc. is sending 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.
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.
