Update: Surprise, surprise - the Nexus Q has had its ship date pushed another 2-3 weeks. We're guessing it doesn't have to do much with unexpected demand.

Oh Nexus Q, I really do want to love you. Unfortunately, you're just not 300 dollars of loveable. The media sphere (which sounds like something out of Futurama) is now officially shipping in 3-5 days.


So, if you want one of these things, go 'n get it. Personally, I find it makes a really classy bookend.

    I wish it was $199. Because you need more than 1 q to take control of all it's feature's

    This product confuses the heck out of me...it has all the hardware to be exactly what we all want...Full Android on our TV. An added feature of mirroring other Android devices would also be great! Despite my HTC Amaze DLNA output, my Asus TF300 Mini-HDMI AND my google TV (Logitech, I'm old school) I would still buy such a device. Why do they refuse to sell it to me ???

      I would not buy that, I do not want that. However they have made it EASILY hackable so you could more or less get exactly what you want from this device.

      I would not have bought it if it was what you described though.

      Oh also I dunno what happened but I ordered July 19th and still haven't had mine shipped so I think the in stock doesn't indicate a sell-out so much as a "we're about to ship".

        Correct. There was some confusion on my part there.

          I actually have been more anxious about my Q than my N7 (which was a CLUSTER). I think they paused on the Q to take care of the N7.

    Well, the word "social" makes me definitely a bit wanting it not so much :D

    I wish it was $199 and had more functionality out of the box, perhaps when (if) the price drops (maybe i'll pick up used) and developers hack the crap out of it i'll pick one up.

    I don't think they will have trouble keeping the Q in stock...

    Every time I see this I think about Portal and the last stage where that round thing that falls out of the final boss. The ball you pick up and you have to take it to that incenerator or whatever, and nobody knows what it is called? That was the Q.

    Wow that was fast went from 1-2 weeks to in stock delivery in 3-5 days and now out to ships in 2-3 weeks. Who has their finger on the in stock button.

  • Merlin Wizard

    reading for the lose? it says 'delivered' in 3-5 days, not 'shipping'
