  • Google's Nexus Q might be making a comeback as some new documents hae landed at the FCC which makes the omission of Nexus Q support in the new Google Play Music app a little strange.  The FCC documents suggest Google are working on the "H840 Device" which is described "as a media player," and the model nuber H2G2-42 is seemingly a strange reference to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Google asked all pictures and diagrams to be kept a secret so we don't hve much to go by at the moment!
