Google Nexus Q

It seems like Google is making an answer to almost everything Apple.  This one even looks a bit like an apple!  What it is, is the Nexus Q – their answer to Apple TV.  Here is what it has under the hood:

  • Dual ARM Cortex-A9 CPUs
  • 16GB of storage
  • 1GB of RAM
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • NFC
  • 25W amplifier with banana jack outputs
  • micro HDMI and optical audio outputs
  • Ethernet
  • Micro USB port for service and support
  • Android 4.0

All of this is in a crazy looking, orb-shaped case that has 32 LED lights that totally trip out to the beat of whatever you are playing.  Want to know what is really crazy?  There is no user-interface for it.  You use Google Play or YouTube directly on your handheld or computer and rock.  This would make a killer bookshelf stereo too – just connect a nice set of Bluetooth speakers.

Pre-order now and get it now when it comes out in mid-July.
