Price Apparently Not An Issue As Initial Nexus Q Stock Sells Out In Less Than 24 Hours

Well, what can I say? I was in complete shock to find out the first batch of Nexus Q devices sold out in less than 24 hours. Granted I have no idea just how many Qs Google had in stock, I’m still in disbelief. I thought for sure the price tag would deter the majority of consumers, yet here we are, looking at a backordered product that won’t start shipping for another 2-3 weeks.

I’m guessing this came as a surprise to Google as well, considering they just made a mad dash to update a slew of apps, including the Nexus Q app. You can now download the Nexus Q app on phones and tablets running earlier versions of Android (originally only Jelly Bean was supported) and you’ll also find apps such as YouTube and Play Movies & TV updated to accommodate the Q:

  • YouTube – Nexus Q support, Turn your phone into a remote, to play YouTube videos on other devices, bug fixes
  • Play Movies & TV – Faster downloads, Fixes a playback failure on some LG (and possibly other) devices, Other bug fixes

All the updates are available via the Play Store and once again… I’m simply shocked! Shocked I tell you!
