Google has pulled of the rather expensive $300 glowing ball off the shelves. It might be because they finally understood that it was too overpriced for the features it provides i.e. just stream music and videos while leaving out other content on your android device.
Google says that they pulled it off to enhance the existing features and bring some new ones, but what about those who already pre-ordered? Well its officially off from the play store but Google will be providing the buyers who pre ordered the device for free! Well, a good start we think.
Here is what Google said about the nexus Q
We have an important update about your Nexus Q pre-order.
When we announced Nexus Q at Google I/O, we gave away devices to attendees for an early preview. The industrial design and hardware were met with great enthusiasm. We also 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.
To thank you for your early interest, we’d like to extend the Nexus Q preview to our pre-order customers and send you a free device. If you had other items in your order, your credit card will be charged for those items only.
Your Nexus Q will be on its way soon and you will receive a notification and tracking number from Google Play when it ships.
The Nexus Q Team
We don’t really know when and if the Nexus Q will be back, the only hope is it would come out better and with value added features.
We have reports that Google has started the shipment to the promised free Nexus Q’s to people who had pre ordered the device. As we already know that Nexus Q launch was delayed because Google wanted to make some changes. Google has started shipping these devices in the United States vicinity, while we are unaware when people from other parts of the world will recive their free Nexus Q.
