Nexus Q won’t see new life at this year’s I/O conference

Google Nexus Q relaunch

Google’s I/O Developers Conference is scheduled to take place later this week and expectations are as high as ever for the annual event. There have been a flurry of reports that have suggested that we could see a variety of new products and services being announced at the event. One device that won’t be making an appearance, however, is the Nexus Q. According to a report from AllThingsD, Google’s ill-fated streaming device that debuted at last year’s event will not be relaunched at this year’s show. The Nexus Q was initially criticized for its $299 price tag and limited capabilities. Google eventually decided to postpone the launch of the device to “work on making it even better,” although we have heard little about it since. Google’s I/O Developers Conference is set to kick off on Wednesday in San Francisco.
