If you really wanted one of the slick, round, Google Nexus Q media streaming devices and didn’t order yesterday, you’re going to have to wait a few weeks. When the device launched yesterday we mentioned that the Google Play store page for the media streaming orb listed the device as in stock and shipping immediately. This morning the official Nexus Q page shows a significant shipping delay.
The Nexus Q now has a shipping delay of two to three weeks. It looks like the device was so popular that Google sold all of its initial stock overnight. There is no indication of exactly how many Nexus Q devices Google had available, so we can’t gauge exactly how many Google sold.
The Nexus Q has integrated Wi-Fi and is compatible with AV systems and TVs in your home. It requires a smartphone or tablet running Android 2.3 or higher that can access Google Play to operate. The MSRP for the device is $299.
