Nexus Q + XBMC = Yum yum…

Google Nexus Q

I have not mentioned much about Google IO 2012 and there is lots I could talk about. However I found the Nexus Q a strange device. However while most people are slagging it off, my ears picked up when they said they wanted people to play with it. Well in the usual way, it was hacked in 24hours.

Yes its running android but there is a effort to do a Android version of XBMC too. However because Android and therefore the Q is linux based, it shouldn’t be too hard to get it running? (I say with a massive respect for the hardwork it takes to hack on unknown hardware)

All I’m saying is the multi colour ring could fit with XBMC’s LCD option. Right?
