Nexus Q, what is this little strange black ball you ask ?
Its a device made by google, touted as being “The world’s first social streaming media player” this device streams music,movies,video and TV to your TV or other devices.
Its design, I think is incredibly cool and modern and would attract attention in any room!
What happens is your Android Phone acts as a remote effectively, telling the Nexus Q what song to play or what movie to stream to your TV. This is all conveniently done via Google Movies and TV, Google Music or Youtube, all owned by Google.
This is a great concept although not entirely unique as similar things are already being done with Google TV and Apple TV. This also plays into the hands of Google, snaring you further into their grasps ensuring any music, TV or movies are all purchased through them to make use of a lot of the features on the Nexus Q.
The price of the Q hasn’t officially been announced but its likely to be $299 and with the Apple TV coming in at $99, many will think of it as a bit too much to spend on a party piece.
