So far the Nexus Q has only been made available to developers and Google I/O attendees, which is unfortunately going to continue, as Google has just announced that they will be delaying the official launch of the Nexus Q until further notice, which they announced in this email:
“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”
The Nexus Q was available for $299, which has now been removed from sale in the Google Play store, with the notice “not for sale”, the main reason for this is basically because they have realized the product is not quite ready for the public.
The great thing is that Google will be giving a Nexus Q free-of-charge to anyone who pre-ordered the device.
