Among the various announcments at Google IO 2012 was this... thing. Dubbed the Nexus Q, it was a $299 streaming media device which ran Android that was supposed to compete with the Apple TV and Roku's steraming media player.
Rather than being a standalone device, the Nexus Q required an Android smartphone or tablet to control it. Compared with Apple and Roku's sub-$100 devices, it was also overpriced.
Google eventually decided that this product was so bad, that it decided not to launch it onto the public after the first round of reviews. Now that's a turkey.
