The latest streaming media player of Google, the Nexus Q media hub, was sold out within the same day it became available on Google Play Store. Stocks of the media player have yet to be replenished by the company although the online store has listed it as to be delivered soon.

The waiting period for the Nexus Q media hub, which was introduced by the online search giant during the I/O conference recently, is currently at around three weeks. The $299 device currently has compatibility for Android-powered devices and allows the streaming of content from YouTube and Google Play into screens and speakers inside a house.

The Nexus Q media hub also features an integrated 25W amplifier and connectors for an HDTV or an AV receiver.

The Nexus Q media hub uses the Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 OS and features a 16GB NAND flash memory and 1GB RAM. Connectivity options for the 4.6-icnh device include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC. It also comes with a number of connections such as Micro AB USB, Micro HDMI, and Ethernet.

A teardown of the Nexus Q media hub showed that the individual components of the device were produced in Asia although these were assembled in the US, which is not quite consistent with the claims of the company that the entire device was designed and produced in the United States.

Although some questions were asked on the real purpose of the Nexus Q media hub when compared to the Google TV, which is clearly Google’s answer to the Apple TV, it was still well-accepted by users following its release into the market.

In addition to the Nexus Q media hub, the Google Nexus 7 tablet was also widely-accepted by consumers following its availability as it sold out in the initial weekend it entered the market. For the moment it remains uncertain when the Google Nexus 7 tablet will become available for potential buyers although they can leave an email to allow them to be notified once it becomes available again in the market.
