Pre-order customers to get Nexus Q free

Google has stared into its Nexus Q shaped ball and seen the future, one that needs a back to the drawing board redesign

Google has announced that the Nexus Q’s July release date has been cancelled as the big G goes back to the drawing board. But to keep pre-order customers of the smart TV streamer sweet Google is giving them a free model when it does arrive. Not bad considering it was originally US$300 (£190).

In Google’s e-mail sent out to pre-order customers, it notes that user feedback was great when it came to internal hardware and design, but that users want more functionality from the device. So it looks like it’ll be a fairly quick fix with mainly software-focused changes.

Check out our hands-on review of the current Nexus Q to find out if an improvement on that will have you reaching for your plastic.
