Google H840 Media Streaming Device Reaches the FCC, Could Follow-up Nexus Q
The Google Nexus Q media streamer didn’t take a long while to go from launch to being scrapped, but the product may be brewing a follow-up. There’s also a hint of that, since a mystery Google H840 media streamer has hit the FCC.
The device is branded as the H840 and it has the FCC product code H2G2-42, a bit of a joke related to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The listing mentions that the device works as a “media player” and there’s a confidentiality report attached to the FCC listing, so the details are scarce.
The Nexus Q was announced last year at the Google I/O 2012 event and it’s pictured above. While the design wasn’t bad at all, the price tag was a bit steep for a device that does something that many other products do. Google may be waiting for the debut of Android 4.3 rumored for June 10th to launch this product. We’ll have to wait and see…
