Google Nexus Q, Hecho in USA? [Vid]By Staff


Google Nexus Q

At the Google I/O last week, Google announced the Nexus Q. First impression of the little thing were lukewarm–I feel like its Google’s BETA for their version of AppleTV but for Android devices.  One interesting fact is that it is made in the US of A!  What is the last thing you remember made in the US?  IHS iSuppli says it costs Google about $130-$210 to make Nexus Q.

Gizmodo says, It is the first product like this we’ve seen out of Google. The Nexus Q is a ball of multimedia hardware that’s supposed to enhance the lives of the legions of Android users. It’s a slick and easy way to play movies, music, and YouTube videos through your TV and home stereo setup, and it gives you a reason to buy stuff from the Google Play store instead of its competitors. [And on buying it they say,] if 320kbps is just what you like, you have all of your music on Google Play, a fast internet connection, and $300 doesn’t sound like much money for you, then sure. For everybody else, this would be a cool novelty item (or it will be if once the bugs are worked out), but most people aren’t going to pay that much for a novelty item.

We agree here at our office as well. It seems like a stripped down device that needs more features before it goes prime-time. But then again if you know Google like everyone else, everything is always in BETA until Google feels like its ready.  So as with most new Google services, I would take this product with a pinch of salt.

Highlights:

  • OS: Runs Google Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and works with Google Android Gingerbread 2.3 and above.
  • Processor: TI OMAP 4460 Dual-Core ARM Cortex-A9
  • Storage: 16GB
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Weight: 2 pounds
  • Connectivity: Dual-Band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC, Micro HDMI, Ethernet, Digital Audio, MicroUSB
  • No battery needed.
  • $300, get it from Google Play Store.
