At the beginning of this year there were some rumors about a possible Google-made home entertainment system set to hit the market later this year. Well, the time has come and the device finally made its debut at this year's Google I/O event.
On short, the Google Nexus Q is a device which streams audio and video from the cloud to your stereo equipment or television. The device itself can be controlled by any Android device, whether it's a tablet or smartphone, but what makes it even more interesting is that since the streaming is done from the cloud and not the phone itself, the Google Nexus Q can be viewed as a social streaming media player.
The idea is that anyone that has access to your Wi-Fi network to which your Nexus Q is connected can also access the cloud and everyone connected can even create shared playlists. It looks kind of cool and it seems like a great gadget for a party.
If the concept behind the Nexus Q sounds interesting to you then you should be pleased to learn that the device is currently available for pre-order from Google Play at the price of $299, with shipments arriving sometime in July.
For more details about the device check out the video below, and if you're planning on pre-ordering your very own Google Nexus Q make sure you visit Google Play and see what's what. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F5FO-MyR0o
