Google delays Nexus Q, sending out free units to pre-order customers

The no-so-warm reception of Google’s first real foray in consumer hardware has forced the company to go back on drawing board. Company seems to have postponed the launch of revamped Nexus Q indefinitely and has renamed Nexus Q to Nexus Q Preview.

Google started sending out e-mail notifications to the pre-order customers in this regard recently and folks at Droid Life got hold one of such email stating company’s position.

Email text:

We have an important update about your Nexus Q pre-order.

When we announced Nexus Q at Google I/O, we gave away devices to attendees for an early preview. The industrial design and hardware were met with great enthusiasm. We also heard initial feedback from users that they want Nexus Q to do even more than it does today. In response, we have decided to postpone the consumer launch of Nexus Q while we work on making it even better.

To thank you for your early interest, we’d like to extend the Nexus Q preview to our pre-order customers and send you a free device. If you had other items in your order, your credit card will be charged for those items only.

Your Nexus Q will be on its way soon and you will receive a notification and tracking number from Google Play when it ships.

The Nexus Q Team

In a positive move, company is not charging the pre-order customers anything for the Nexus Q, which it also now believes is just a bet product. We hope to see Nexus Q come out in full force soon, probably in time for holidays.
