    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.

    Another conclusion you can draw is that very few were available to begin with. Not interested in the least. There are several other devices that fill the same role or do more at better price points. I like that Google is experimenting. They do these little probes (no-pun intended) well and you never know what their failures will become in a future iteration.
