The UK's Getting Screwed Over the Google Nexus Q

By Sam Gibbs on at

What with people hurling themselves out of planes with Google Glass strapped to their faces yesterday, and the surprise announcement that yes, the UK will be getting the Nexus 7 tablet and it'll actually be cheap, it was easy to miss the fact that the UK isn't on the list for that fancy Nexus Q.

Stephen Rosenthal, Google UK's communications manager, told Pocket Lint "there are no plans as yet" for a British roll out of the Nexus Q. That doesn't mean we'll never see it on our shores, of course, but unlike the Nexus 7, it's not going to be here anytime soon.

Whether we actually care about a small, yet pricy circular Google media streamer that's not Google TV, I'm not so sure. Something tells me we'll have to wait till the Google Play Store gets fleshed out with more content for the UK before a media streamer like that is actually worthwhile. [Pocket Lint]
