    Well, this is an interesting turn of events. Earlier this morning we picked up a story regarding the new Google Nexus Q "media sphere" that the new device was now available on the Google Play Store. Since the device's cost of $299.99 seems a bit high to some, we figured we could post the story later this afternoon while we work on higher priority articles (sometimes you just have to develop a triage strategy for the daily news).

    Surprisingly, the device has already sold out and is now saying it will ship in 2-3 weeks instead. Perhaps we underestimated the demand for the apparently intriguing device. Regardless, here is a link below if you would like to order one for yourself now. Sound off in the forums if you are excited about the Nexus Q.

    Can someone please explain to me what the big deal is about this thing? Is it just a music player that people with android phones can send their music to so everyone is the DJ? If that's all it does, I don't get why so many people are excited and how Google is getting away with such a high price tag xD

    When you only build 5 it is easy to sell out! Now that they have some buzz they can build more! BTW, I could not get the play store to open to it.
