The video of Nexus Q shows that the device streams music and entertainment from the cloud to your home.
“It’s the first device that lets you create social playlists with your friends,” the video states. “All they need is an Android phone or tablet and connection to your Wi-Fi.”
By launching the Google Play music app, you can list songs and albums to the queue and friends can add the same from their own collections. The Nexus Q also works for streaming YouTube videos and movies.

It's an orb-like streaming-media device with a $300 price tag, that looks to act as the bridge between Android tablets and smartphones, and your TV. The (currently unlisted) YouTube video shows off its ability to integrate with your Google Music account, as well as "push" videos to your TV, similar to Apple's AirPlay functionality.
While it's not entirely clear from the product shots currently available, the Nexus Q has a micro HDMI output (and includes an HDMI cable), in addition to an optical audio port, Ethernet jack, and banana jack speaker outputs. The Nexus Q also has a built-in 25-watt amp, which means you won't need a separate AV receiver to power speakers, similar to a Sonos Connect:Amp. There's also built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC support.
The Nexus Q runs a version of Android 4.0, with 16GB of onboard flash memory and 1GB of RAM. Unlike streaming media boxes like Roku or the Apple TV, the Nexus Q only supports a few Google-centric apps: Google Play Music, Google Play Movies and TV and YouTube. The "social" aspect of Nexus Q initially appears to be the ability for multiple Android devices to create a group playlist.
According to the product page, the Nexus Q should be shipping in 2-3 weeks. Also listed is a set of $400 bookshelf speakers, made by Triad Speakers, designed to be used with the Nexus Q.
This is a developing story and will be updated with more details shortly.

Google Unveils Nexus Q Streaming Media Player

Posted by gvgvasgvsz vgzavzAvv

Google's Nexus Q uses your Android smartphone or tablet in conjunction with Google Play to stream music and videos to your HDTV, sound system, or just speakers.

Google debuted a new orb-shaped media streaming device called the Nexus Q before it took the stage for its Google I/O keynote. The Nexus , what the company calls “the first social streaming media player” first appeared on the Google Play website store.
Closer look at Nexus QGoogle's Nexus Q uses your Android smartphone or tablet in conjunction with Google Play to stream music and videos to your HDTV, sound system, or a pair of speakers. What sets the Nexus Q apart from similar media streaming devices, such as Apple TV, is that it allows you to collaborate with friends via your Android device to create playlists of music and video clips.
The Nexus Q isn’t just an Apple TV clone device from Google. Think of the Nexus Q as a hybrid between Apple’s streaming puck and the Sonos music streaming stereo component. The Q features a built-in 25W amp that can power a pair of bookshelf speakers. In addition, users can sync Qs across multiple rooms.
From a video promo (see below) of the Nexus Q Google says: "streams your favorite entertainment from Google Play and YouTube to the biggest speakers and screen in the house."
Using the Q, Android users on the same WiFi network can “queue” (get it?) up their Google Play Music tracks. Every user sees the same playlist, and can edit it as they see fit, hence “the first social streaming media player.”
The Nexus Q runs Ice Cream Sandwich, is powered by a dual-core OMAP4460, with 16GB of storage. Google will be shipping the Nexus Q in the next 2-3 weeks for a list price of $299. It’s thrice the price of an Apple TV, but it packs lots more features.

Google's Nexus 7 tablet

Posted by gvgvasgvsz vgzavzAvv

Well, it looks like the rumors are true. This morning, just ahead of 2012's Google I/O initial keynote,Android Police dug up what looks to be an official press shot of Mountain View's unannounced 7-inch tablet, aptly named the Nexus 7. As opposed to our previous sneak peek, this shot shows what is most assuredly the home screen for Jelly Bean, and comes directly from Google's servers. Glad we got that settled. Now we just need to know about the actual hardware inside -- good thing we've only gotta wait another hour or so to find out.
Update: Hoo, boy! The hits keep comin.' The good golks at Modaco managed to grab screenshots for the sale page of the Nexus 7, replete with screenshots and specs. Turns out, the tablet has a 1280x800 IPS display coated in "scratch-resistant Corning glass," which we presume is of the Gorilla variety, plus a front-facing, 1.2-megapixel camera. Within its 198.5 x 120 x 10.45mm case lies either 8 ($199) or 16GB ($249) of storage, plus 1GB of RAM, and NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 SoC. Connectivity comes courtesy of GPS, Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Micro USB, plus it's got NFC for all your Android Beaming needs. Rounding things out is a 4325mAh battery and the usual spate of sensors: accelerometer, magnetometer, and a gyroscope. Want more? A video all about Jelly Bean and the new hardware running it awaits after the break, or you can hop on over to the source to order one for yourself.

Google introduces ‘Nexus 7′ tablet

Posted by gvgvasgvsz vgzavzAvv

At its Google I/O developers conference at Moscone Center Wednesday morning, Google was to introduce its much-rumored new tablet computer. Here’s a report from our friends at Bloomberg News from a video posted on YouTube. Come back for more details and insights on the Google I/O announcement from Chronicle tech reporter Casey Newton:
By Brian Womack
Google Inc. unveiled a handheld computer called the Nexus 7 that features a 7-inch screen and is designed to help the company vie with Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corp. in the surging market for tablets.
The Nexus 7 will feature Google’s Android operating system, according to a video posted on the YouTube website. The company is expected to unveil other information about the product at its San Francisco event.
Google is on the hunt for ways to fuel sales of tablets, a market that may almost double this year to 118.9 million units, according to Gartner Inc. Though Android has grabbed more than half of the smartphone market, tablets with the software have won less than half the iPad’s share, and will face new pressure from Microsoft, which unveiled its own tablet last week.
“The tablet market is a major challenge for Google at this point,” said Clayton Moran, a Delray Beach, Florida-based analyst at Benchmark Co. “They need to have a competitive product with the iPad.”
The Google tablet will also showcase Android’s latest iteration, which is named Jelly Bean, according to the video.
This would also be the first tablet to get Google’s Nexus designation. Google has worked with manufacturers such as Samsung in the past for Nexus smart phones to highlight the best features of Android software. The processor in the new tablet will be provided by Nvidia Corp., one of the people familiar with the matter said.

Posted by gvgvasgvsz vgzavzAvv

Web giant Google has revealed its newest version of its Android operating system, by rolling out a 'Jelly Bean' statue on its front lawn at its headquarters in Mountain View, California. 

The Jelly Bean statue now joins other dessert-themed statues on Google's lawn, including an Ice Cream Sandwich, Donut, Cupcake, andEclair, all representing the different versions of Android. 

According to ABC News, Google will share the details on Jelly Bean at its Google I/O conference in San Francisco, where the firm will preview and demonstrate the software for developers and press; no real details have been shared on what the operating system will include. 

The current version of Android, called Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.0, was released last November which brought sweeping changes to the mobile phone and tablet operating system, and was released with a phone called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as it worked closely with Samsung to create a phone for the new software. 

Google also is expected to release a new Nexus device, except this time it is a tablet. Rumored to be called the Nexus 7, Google-watchers believe the tablet will have a 7-inch screen, a quad-core processor, made by Asus and will be priced at 199 dollars.
