Nexus Q Delayed as Google Tries to Improve It

Aug 1, 2012

According to a report by Phandroid, Google is currently in the process of revamping the Nexus Q from a software standpoint. An email went out to preorder customers saying that Google “heard initial feedback from users that they want Nexus Q to do even more than it does today. In response, we have decided to postpone the consumer launch of Nexus Q while we work on making it even better.”

It’s unclear what this necessarily means for the future of the Nexus Q. It would be entirely unfounded speculation to suggest that they might turn it into a Google TV device, but it makes sense as a solution to the Nexus Q’s perceived utility problem. Google isn’t exactly forthcoming on what these improvements will be, and the Nexus Q’s web page has been stripped of details. For those who did preorder the Nexus Q, they’re in the luck: Google is shipping out free devices to them very soon.
