The Nexus Q ships as a mysterious looking sphere that allows Android users to stream audio and video. It includes an “audiophile grade” stereo amp with banana jacks that justifies the price for those of who love them some high-end speakers, but for everyone else the streaming options seem somewhat limited relative to competing products (the Q only streams media from YouTube and Google Play).
Of course bigger things might be in store – Google hinted at I/O that significant updates may be coming. And the developer community has jumped on the device, porting CyanogenMod to it and allowing owners to launch games and other apps on the device. Whether that will translate into sustained demand probably depends on how quickly Google decides to expand the Nexus Q, and what aftermarket upgrades developers make available. Either way, the Nexus Q is off to a stronger start than apparently even Google expected.
