Google has just uncovered one more surprise up on the stage here for the Google IO Day 1 Keynote, and that is the new Google Q. What is the Q? This is their first consumer electronic product and will work hand-in-hand with the Nexus 7. The Nexus Q is Google’s new media-streaming device for the home.

The Nexus Q works great with YouTube, cloud music, cloud movie streaming and more. This is their first Android@Home device and I’m excited to dig into more of its features. Anyone with an Android device can control the Q, and it links directly with the Play Store for movies, music, YouTube and anything else you’d like to stream.

We’ve just learned a few things on this device so we’ll be sure and keep you updated. The Nexus Q will also be available mid July and us also up on the Play Store for just $299. The Nexus Q will bring Android and media to our living rooms Google-style. More info is available now at the Google Play Store.

    The price point for this thing is a little high. Throw in the $400 speakers. That $700 for a media streamer. I do like the feature that allows guest to add songs to the queue via their own phone, but the price of entry is too high for my blood.

    Not sure. So, it’s basically Apple TV without Airplay, for three times the price? I like the looks, but they’re going to have to expand the feature set before this thing can rival Apple TV.

    The Nexus 7 looks interesting, but this thing is going to fail. Hard.

    It’s not apple TV it needs to compete with in my mind, as Apple TV is featureless compared some of its competition. For me, it will be how it compares to my Boxee box, which is already managing most of these features, less the play store, and doing it very well. Plus, the Boxee Box comes in under $200. So, when I want a second media player, what will make nexus q better than my Boxee to have me spend 120 bucks more.
