Dante D’Orazio at The Verge:
Google has just let us know that it is delaying the launch of the Nexus Q as it works to improve the device.
A weird device gets weirder.
I suspect it went something like this:
Google: How many of you would like a free ball-shaped Google version of the Apple TV that doesn’t have a remote and instead requires another Android device (not included) to control it?
I/O attendees: Did you say free? We’ll take it!
Google: OK, now how many other people out there would like one for $300?
I wonder what they’ll change. I’m guessing they cut the speaker amp, outsource the manufacturing, and cut the price to $199. Or, more likely, they’ll just quietly cancel it.
