INTERNET SERVICES GIANT Google has already sold out of its Nexus Q media streaming device following its launch at the Google I/O Conference last month.

Shipping time shown on the US Google Play store has slipped from three to five days to two or three weeks overnight, with potential buyers now being asked to register their email address for updates when the Nexus Q is back in stock.

We find this quite surprising, as at $299 it's an expensive piece of kit - especially when compared to the Apple TV. Still, its quirky spherical design has obviously helped the device fly off the shelves, as well as its ability to let users stream music and videos straight from the cloud to their HD TV.

The device, which weighs 923g, also features a dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and integrated NFC technology.

Google told us that it has no plans to bring the Nexus Q to the UK, but given the demand it's seen for the device in the US, it might be having second thoughts. µ
