Nexus Q Status Changes to “No Longer Available For Sale” From “Not for Sale at This Time”

google nexus q

This morning, Google updated the Nexus Q page in Google Play to read “no longer available for sale.” This may not seem like news at first glance, but up until today, the page read “This device is not for sale at this time,” giving us some hope that it would eventually return. We aren’t sure if this new status change means it’s never coming back or not, but it certainly doesn’t sound positive. In fact, the Galaxy Nexus and 8GB Nexus 7 both say “no longer available for sale” and definitely not ever coming back. 

As you may recall, the Nexus Q went into limbo back in July as Google took it back to drawing board to re-work its features. They also rewarded early pre-orderees with free devices. Since then, we haven’t heard one word about the device, though we were crossing fingers that it would return as an all new home entertainment beast at this year’s Google I/O. We’ll see.

    An appropriate end for a pointless product.

  • andrew galvin

    I love my nexus Q! I hope if and when they update it the OS gets updated on the original model.

      It’d be nice to have seamless playback.. being a nexus device and all

  • jm9843

    It’s because the hardware is going to be refreshed. There’s no way that they’d ship the same device with no changes to the chipset (at minuimum) over a year after it was originally conceived.

    I really hope they don’t get rid of this. I love this device it just needs to have full Google TV and it’d be perfect.

  • Chris King

    can it use nexus 7 with miricast and stream it to your tv ?

    • hkklife

      No, the N7 really shows its budget roots in beans totally unable to stream anything or offer any kind of video-out connectivity.

      • Chris King

        it has miracast in 4.2 but google hasnt updated 7 yet to give you the option

  • nightscout13

    I still want a Q

  • Tim242

    3 months from now: Nexus 4 – No longer for sale.

    • ERIC REED

      If it didn’t have the Nexus name on it this phone wouldn’t have got mentioned after the first reviews came out.

      • Tim242

        100% agreed! It would’ve been just another LG that nobody cared about.

  • David Verba

    Major News Flash eh? Any other big news for the day?

      Bananas said to grow on large bushes which were reportedly known as trees before!

  • Tirionfive

    Just a heads up, They changed it back!

  • Micah Gemmell

    dagnabnit, should have pre-ordered it. haha

  • Shane Redman

    NOOOOOOOOOOO! It wasn’t that we didn’t like it Google, we just didn’t like it as is!

    • http://profiles.google.com/thelolotov Jacob Davis

      It wasn’t that I didn’t like it, quite the opposite, I just hated the price!

  • http://twitter.com/Wil_Payne Wil Payne

    I thought this device was useless but now I want, like, 8 of them.

    And then at Google I/O, *SURPRISE* the Nexus Q is now a full Google TV. It will be shipping with v3.0 which is now available in AOSP…. TODAY!

    I can dream right?

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      It’s gonna happen! :P

      • Tirionfive

        They reverted the change I guess. See my other comment.

        • 4n1m4L

          Kahn!!!!!!

      • http://twitter.com/DavidSheaffer David Sheaffer

        No Q for you!

    • Bionicman

      that would be awesome. also if it was priced lower that would be great too!

      • jm9843

        Easy: remove the integrated amp. Ideally, offer multiple skus – with and without.

      • michael arazan

        Now these things will be from $200-500 and up on ebay from all those who got it free at i/o Wouldn’t be surprised to see them hit 1k on ebay

    • Jwhap

      This x100! I love my Q.

      • Daniel Rosseau

        Yea I use mine all the time. No way I would have paid $300 for it but I got it for $100 on Craigslist and it’s well worth it. I use it to power my outdoor speakers which don’t need that much power and then I watch a fair amount of movies/youtube videos on the TV with it.

  • temp

    I still love both of my Nexus Qs

    • 4n1m4L

      Me too. Been playing with the qremote to show off the LEDs. I wanna use the q to drive bedroom mood lights. Haven’t quite figured it out yet though.

      Q_Q. <–That's me staring at both of your Nexus Qs.

      Yep. I'm weird.
