Google's American-made Nexus Q

Good for Google for sourcing as much as they could domestically to build this. Some component makers as close as Schaumburg, IL and Wisconsin.

I'm kind of confused by this product, though I'm pretty sure Google is just doing an experiment with it.

It's way overpriced for what it is and also, shouldn't people be mad because it's pretty much mimicking what Apple does? You can only play Google Play content, similar to only using iTunes content for Apple.

Agree that it is more of an experiment. In the long run I am sure Google will take all of these features and put them on a single chip and license it to TV makers to add to their oem sets. This is probably just a gauge to see if there is interest to create some sort of matrix to show the demand.

Brilliant marketing if what you said or something similar is their end goal.

Google hasn't made a big deal of the "Made in America" because they knew the media would be all over it. With the current state of the economy, many people will see this as a huge positive even if they have no intention of purchasing it and a percentage of those people will remember and actually purchase a product because of it.

It's like they set themselves up 3 moves ahead in a game of chess. 'merica!
