The launch of the Nexus Player was held back as the device was yet to be certified by the FCC. However, with that process being completed, the device has finally been spotted on the Google Play Store with a price tag of $99. This is only a pre-order listing and the device will be shipped to customers in 3-4 weeks.
The Nexus Player is an Android TV reference design concept and is the first device to run the company’s proprietary home entertainment OS based on Android. Users will be able to access a wide array of content and data, including services like the Play Store, Play Music, Play Movies and TV among others.
Users can also buy an ASUS made bluetooth Gamepad along with the console for an additional $39. It’s quite a nifty product and will take on the likes of Amazon’s Fire TV and the Apple TV.
The Nexus Player comes with a 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and HDMI output for 1080p video streaming at 60 fps. The console also comes with a handy little remote packing the power of Google Voice Search. You can pre-order the Nexus Player from the Play Store link below.
