Google postpones Nexus Q release date
Google has blocked the release of its Nexus Q media hub, claiming it wants to make it even better
Google has delayed the commercial release of its Nexus Q media hub, which was scheduled to begin shipping to consumers this week.
Google has now decided to delay the commercial release of the device, following initial – not-so-positive – feedback from developers that took home the device after the company’s I/O 2012 developer conference.
In an email to consumers that had pre-ordered the Nexus Q, Google said, ‘we decided to postpone the consumer launch of Nexus Q while we work on making it even better.’
The Nexus Q is now listed as ‘not for sale at this time’ on the company’s Play store.
Google has, however, accepted its mistake and offered disappointed consumers something to be smile about: anyone that pre-ordered the device will now get it for free once it’s commercially available. See, every cloud does have a silver lining.
Google has yet to confirm with Know Your Mobile when it will be done making the Nexus Q even better, indicating that if you pre-ordered the device you could be waiting a while before your free one arrives.
More news as we get it.
