Google has delayed the launch of the Nexus Q, a home entertainment device that was supposed to come out in July. To make up for the delay, Google Inc is sending the gadget free to everyone who pre-ordered it.

Google is not saying when the Nexus Q will available. It plans to sell the device for $299 in the US.

The ball-shaped device is similar to Apple TV, a small box that can stream music and movies over Internet connections. But the Apple TV is only $99.

The Nexus Q sends content from your own collection or from YouTube to your existing TV and speaker systems. You control it through a separate Android phone or tablet. Google has called it the first social streaming device.
