Finally, something American that involves tech. The Google Nexus Q was announced yesterday at the Google I/O developer event. It is an Android 4.0 powered streaming media device that looks quite cool. It’s currently available for pre-order on the Google Play website for $299 and will start shipping sometime mid-July.

The device connects to your home Wi-Fi and by using Google Play it can stream music, TV shows, movies, etc. from the service to your device, now that is cool. You can also connect it to your TV via an HDMI cable. The great thing is, it’s all made in the USA, reports Wired.

Google’s Joe Britt states in the article:

When you’re building stuff in China, there can be a multi-week latency between when a product is produced until when you’re actually able to evaluate it. Unless you’ve got somebody on the ground, constantly monitoring every aspect, it’s really hard to guarantee quality. You’re trusting someone 6,000 miles away.

It’s not for certain that Google’s Nexus Q will be able to beat the Apple TV, it definitely shows that Google wants the consumer to see that high tech doesn’t have to be made overseas.
