Google Is Preparing An Android Gaming Console …

… a Smartwatch and a new version of Nexus Q. Whoever refers to it is Amir Efrati of the WSJ.

Google may be working on an Android-based game console and smart clock. Also the Nexus Q, announced a year ago inKeynote by Google I/O 2012, should be updated to a second version.

Apparently, these new products that have already arisen in rumors, intend to anticipate the launch of identical products by other companies, namely Apple.

Much has been said that Samsung is preparing to launch a Smartwatch, a smart watch capable of complementing the smartphone. Samsung is not out of the game, either, and it’s likely to launch one soon.

In addition to Smartwatch, rumors have also surfaced that Apple may launch a gaming console to further enrich its gaming ecosystem created with iOS mobile devices.

Google may be the one to anticipate and will be preparing for the launch of an Android-based game console soon. It’s a fact that the best titles are initially launched for iOS and many of them do not even come to the Android platform because the publishers do not get the profit they expect on this platform and therefore do not bet so much on it.

All these devices will be designed by Google and everything points to the goal is to create a gaming ecosystem sustained around the Android operating system, something that does not yet exist with clarity.

According to a recent IDC study, the Android operating system accounts for 75% of all smartphones and 56.5% of all existing tablets, totaling more than 900 million total activations (devices linked to Google, data revealed in Google I / O 2013).

Setting up a Google gaming console will most likely “shake” the gaming industry on mobile devices (and beyond). As an example, a newly launched Android-based console, Ouya, costs just £ 99 and is experiencing quite a large demand.

The smart clock will also be based on Android and with features still unknown, however it has been a long-established product for various brands, and will have a utility already minimally defined.

The Nexus Q, a multimedia and entertainment player capable of streaming music and videos directly from Google Play or YouTube and playing them on the house’s best screen and sound system, has not stood out much since its release, year. It came up with a set of seemingly unorganized ideas and, after its introduction, was barely spoken and only the programmers became more interested in it.

Now you can come up with an improved and much more complete version, perhaps with Google TV software (Android based) and compatible as a wide range of services. [Via WSJ ]
