Google delays release of Nexus Q to add improvements

Google announced today it has delayed the July release of the Nexus Q to allow more time to implement improvements in the media streaming device.

Previewers reportedly wanted the device to do more than it’s currently capable of, prompting Google to pull out of its immanent release.

The decision to stop the launch is being viewed by some as a positive development as it allows Google’s first independently engineered and manufactured hardware time to function the way consumers, like the previewers, expect it to.

Not to turn away its early supporters, Google sent out an email note to pre-order customers today informing them of the delay but also revealing they’d be sending a free Q to each of them.

Sudden sell out, 2.5 star review

The Nexus Q sold out of its initial stock in a matter of 24 hours just a few days ago, TechRadar reported. The Google Play store gave customers a shipping time of 3-5 days July 25 but quickly changed the delivery time to between 2-3 weeks.

TechRadar reviewed the Nexus Q earlier this month and while we were impressed by its looks and overall simplicity, we weren’t wowed by its performance.

As reviewer William O’Neal pointed out, YouTube videos “looked like, well, YouTube videos” and other features left much to be desired.

And, with a price tag just shy of $300, O’Neal pointed out there are other devices on the market that do what you’d expect the Q to do for much less money.

Hopefully this delay, which Google hasn’t given an end date for, will only improve the Q.
