Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

The Q

The Q looks like a flop to me. It requires a phone or tablet (not a stand alone device) and is priced at $299. From looking at it the most similar product on the market right now is the AppleTV (Airplay feature). That is 1/3 the price and can be used as a standalone device.

What is Google thinking? NFC?

The Vizio Co-Star on the other hand looks about 1,000 times better. It has Google TV, Amazon Instant Video, OnLive games, and the Play Market. All for only $99.99. In my opinion, Google should have shown the Vizio product during Google IO.
