Nexus Q launch delayed, pre-orderers getting free device

Google is postponing the consumer release of its home theater gadget until it offers more functionality.

Google's Nexus Q played a big role in the company's Google I/O keynote, but it looks like the company is going back to the drawing board.

In an email sent to anyone that pre-ordered the device, Google explains that due to "initial feedback from users", the official launch of the Nexus Q is being postponed indefinitely, so it can "do even more than it does today." Additionally, Google is offering pre-orderers a free Nexus Q as a reward for their early support.

While it's surprising to see Google change directions so quickly on the Nexus Q, it's encouraging that the company is listening to the early criticism. My own review of the Nexus Q was lukewarm, largely due to its lack of app support, especially at its $300 price point.

The full email sent to pre-orders is below.

Subject: Status of Your Nexus Q Pre-Order

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.
