Google will delay the release of its Nexus Q, the company's first self-designed and marketed consumer electronics device.
Google announced the delay of the orb-shaped media player device in an email on Tuesday to its customers who had pre-ordered the made-in-America gadget, saying it wanted to add more features and functions.
The the Nexus Q was unveiled
alongside the Nexus 7 tablet at Google's I/O event in June.
Nexus Q is a sphere that combines the power of Android and Google Play to stream music and video at home - all controlled by an Android phone or tablet. Nexus Q is a small sphere that plugs into speakers and TVs. It's a social streaming device - like a cloud - connected jukebox where everyone brings their own music to the party.
The device could be preordered from Google Play for $299, and was supposed to ship mid-July.
