Google has postponed shipping its new media device, the spherical Nexus Q, indefinitely while it works on bettering its creation, according to reports.
Google apparently told users that it was responding to initial feedback to improve the experience, the New York Times reported. Reviews of the Nexus Q were never stellar. With a $299 pricetag and the same features as a much cheaper Boxee or Roku, it didn't seem to fill a niche. Also, early reports said the process was "cumbersome."
Google didn't give a new shipping date for the improved Nexus Q, but did say that it would send a free version of the device to those who already ordered it.
