The Nexus Q is not officially dead by Google (but dead in our hearts and minds, which is what really matters). Virtually all the news about this multimedia remind us of what it could be and (we can almost say that for sure) never will. But that does not mean that Google gave up of thinking in that kind of device. Quite the contrary.
A documentation of a product from Google sent to the Federal Communications Commission, the FCC, reveals that a new device, which goes by the name H840, is undergoing testing and prior analysis for an approval in the United States. A curious detail: the device has the identification number of H2G2-42, a clear reference to the literary saga The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, where the number 42 is the answer to the meaning of life, the universe and everything.
It would also be the answer to the most relevant question, which is: the Nexus Q will have a real successor? Especially now that the Play Music All Access is a reality and not just a rumor circling the internet? Whereas visit the FCC of a device is a clear notice of plans for commercial launch, we can say that the wait for news that answer such questions will not be too long.
