Google Nexus Q launch stock sells out on US Play Store

Search giant's Android-based media streamer sees strong demand following yesterday's release

The Google Nexus Q, which was announced last month at Google's I/O conference, lands in the US - but there's no word on a UK release date yet

Just hours after being made available via the Google Play Store in the US, the spherical media streamer that is the Google Nexus Q has seen its estimated shipping date pushed back as high demand sees launch stock sell out.

Following its official unveiling alongside the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean powered Google Nexus 7 tablet during Google I/O conference late last month, the Google Nexus Q hit the American Play Store yesterday with a $299 (£191) price tag.

A spokesperson for Google told T3 that the orb-shaped device has only been announced for the US and that the search giant will make an announcement once it's scheduled for a UK release.

In addition to streaming content such as music and video around the home, it also hosts a range of Google apps, including YouTube and Google Play Movies.

The Android-powered media streaming player comes equipped with the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS, as well as a dualcore OMAP 4460 Cortex A9 processor and SGX540 GPU. Also in the mix is 1GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage.

Are you holding out for the Nexus Q's UK release date or are you more taken by the iOS filled AppleTV offer that features many of the same qualities? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
