Google working on a Nexus TV for release next year


Google may be looking to recoup from the Nexus Q disaster with a with a new device that’ll compliment its Chromecast dongle. This new push into the living room will take the form of a set top box dubbed the Nexus TV, says sources close to The Information.Details on the device are sparse, but it’s expected to be a media streaming device that’ll pull content from online sources and deliver it to your HDTV. It’ll be similar to the Chromecast dongle, but in a bigger form factor that could support a variety of services and offer an array of connectivity options currently not available to dongle owners.

The Nexus TV may debut in the first half of 2014, with a Google I/O unveiling a very strong possibility. Any interest in a Nexus TV? Is it a good idea or does it need to be more than just a media streaming device?
