Right alongside the Nexus 7 images are images of yet another new device called the Nexus Q. Very little is know about this device right now, only that it's a "social streaming media player."



Okay, so it looks like the Q is a device that connects to your Wi-Fi networks and interfaces with your Android phone or tablet to stream your media. It also allows you to build collaborating playlists with other people, using - get this - Google Play@Home! That's right, Android@Home is now Play@Home and starts with the Nexus Q. More info:

Thanks, Adam!

      Maybe the Nexus 7 has a few drawbacks, but this thing looks amazing!! Did anyone tell you the Nexus 7 is only $199. Well it is. $199.

    That looks really facking cool. The cords even look like a robotic hand.

    Not interested with the concept of Social Streamer. It looks awesome though, much better than Nexus 7.

    So now we have confirmed a slightly ugly tablet and a gorgeous media player. Google's all over the place in design. Which is a good and bad thing, but mostly good. Really glad to see the Nexus brand branching out beyond just phones.

    Bigger news "Google Play At home" This sounds like TV shows are coming to the play store. I wonder if this feature will come to the Google TV boxes. This looks like the final product of what they showed us last year.

    Notice that the phones and tablets all used in the video have the same homescreen as the Nexus 7 on the leaked pics. Not good. I don't want my navi buttons in the middle of the screen!

    wow never before i was so not moved by a device before. i don't hate it, i don't like it. i don't want it, i don't need it. i couldn't be more indifferent to this thing.

    Actually it looks pretty nice.  I just wish it does more than sharing music and videos.  Would be great if it comes with Google TV and that allow gaming? (Don't recall seeing gaming in demo). $299 is a bit high for a device that only does 'social music & video  sharing'. Heck, my friend can come to my house and plug her phone to my TV via HDMI and there she goes, sharing her videos and music on my TV and sound system.  No need to waste $299.

    That's a pretty spiffy looking device. It's not something I think I'll ever buy (at least, not at anywhere near their asking price), but at least it looks good.

    This thing must do a lot more for $299...

    Old Android phones that could be bought off contract at that price, and have mini-hdmi, could do all of this.  I would like one of these, but I see it between $79 and $99, unless there's a huge feature I'm missing.
