A mysterious device has appeared on the Google Play website ahead of its possible announcement at Google's annual I/O developer conference today.
The Nexus Q "social streaming media player" is cloud-based and can stream Google Play Music, Google Play Movies/TV, and YouTube content to your tablet, smartphone, or TV.
According to the Google Play website, the Nexus Q will have a built-in 25W amp, or there's an option to connect the mysterious sphere to an AV receiver or HDTV.

Back connectors include Micro HDMI, TOSLink, 10/100 RJ45, MicroUSB, and Banana jack speaker outputs.
The Nexus Q is priced at $299.

Yup. If I had one of those, my 1 year-old would be trying to grab it so he could kick it and make some goals.
