Hope you've got a large available line of credit for this year's Google I/O, because the big G is not holding back. After we've found leaks of the mysterious orb of power Nexus Q, now Google's device page has shared some more secrets: expensive bookshelf speakers to go along with its new "social streaming media player."

The speakers will only be available in the US initially, and seem to be of a pretty high quality.

I bet those of you who bought an LTE phone from Sprint had already forgotten about the high speed powers the nation's third-largest carrier promised you. No? You've actually been foaming at the mouth, eagerly waiting to sink your teeth into the new network? Ah, well, if you live in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, or San Antonio, then I've got some good news for you! Once July 15th hits, you can stop drooling!

In a blog post this morning on the Tegra Zone, NVIDIA game us insight into a couple of new games coming to Tegra-powered devices later this year. Both games happen to be from the game studio and, unlike past THD games, are actually being ported over from the Playstation Vita.

First up is Orgarhythm THD, a rhythm-based action game where you have to sync your attacks with an interesting mix of rock, club, and tribal music.

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!

We've been hearing about the mysterious "Google tablet" for months now and, more recently, have seen quite a bit of supporting evidence that it will be called the Nexus 7. We've even seen the back and sides of the device. What we haven't seen, however, is the interface.

Until now.

What you're looking at there is an official image of the Nexus 7, directly from Google's Play Store servers.

Open the flood gates and let the Play Store news come in this morning! It looks like Google has updated support of its web store at play.google.com for at least 20 new languages. One of our esteemed tipsters pointed out today that the languages list has gotten bigger. Much bigger. We checked it out for ourselves and it's true.

Viggle, which pairs a great idea with a funny name, is an app we covered last month during its beta period. The TV check-in app, which has already seen great success on iOS, recently landed in the Play Store though, finally out of beta.

For those not familiar with the app, Viggle essentially listens to your TV's audio (at your command), and figures out which show(s) you're watching by comparing the audio it heard to a database, rewarding points depending on the programming (for instance, promoted shows get more points).

As you can see, Sprint's LTE warrior will still cost you $149.99 if you're upgrading, just as previously.

Hit up the source to order one if you're interested; if you're not yet sure, have a look at our review of the device first.

An enterprising young reddit user has discovered some interesting new bits in the Play Store source code today. New lines of code, as well as some new strings that indicate users will now be able to watch television shows and read magazines on their devices. So far, the Play Store's video offerings have been limited to movies, and Google Currents has specialized in blogs only.

Here are the full strings found in the source code:

 

  • "This magazine issue is now available on your device."

  • "You have subscribed to this magazine.

Sirius XM subscribers will soon have one more way to consume the content that they pay for - this time through Google TV. It's said that the partnership and application will be announced at Google I/O this week, and the app should be available "this summer," though no specific date has been given.

The service will be available to all Sirius XM subscribers and include all of Sirus' most popular content, like the ramblings of Howard Stern, "Carlin's Corner" (a channel dedicated specifically to George Carlin), ESPN SportsCenter, and a host of other similar content.
