In Case You Missed It: Nexus Q Exits the Play Store - Page 3
• It will be affordable. If it can’t be under $150, no one will turn away from cheaper, already trusted devices.
• It will be easier than all the rest. Emulating the instant-on experience of our beloved dumb TVs is something that hasn’t been fully realized yet by any connected TV device.
This “it” device is something I dub the Nexus Play (a very necessary name change to wash all that bad taste from Google TV and Nexus Q out of our mouths). As the name implies, Google Play will play a crucial role in the Nexus Play experience. It’s all about the Google experience first, then access to the Netflixes of the world second.
Step 1) Connect the Nexus Play orb to your TV.
Step 2) Turn your TV on.
Step 3) Watch TV.
Yes, that’s it. It really can be that easy. Whatever plays first, it won’t matter because that’s what we’re used to and have been doing all along. Whether Google decides what plays first is based on a hi-level shuffle on any TV show, movie, music video or YouTube subscription in one’s cloud, it’ll simply play. And if it will simply play, sure enough people will pay.
From there, Nexus Play owners can browse the rest of the Play Store to throw their disposable income at Google like the stripper she is. They can even install select apps from the Play Store made specifically for HDTVs: Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video and anything else developers can dish out to be part of the Nexus Play experience.
I know I would buy a Nexus Play if all things were brought to life, but the question is would you? Say so in the comments below.
