Nexus Q gets gutted, $299 internals revealed

If you’re curious about what exactly the Nexus Q is all about, iFixit have done its thing and shown us perhaps more than most people needed to know.

So if you want to see what hides underneath the Nexus Q hood, look no further. And yes, the image above has Google spelled with the Q’s own parts.

The Nexus Q, unveiled last week at Google I/O, acts as a media center of sorts, allowing any Android user to access their Google-related stuff via wireless sync.

The hardware specifications include:

  • 16GB internal storage
  • 1 GB RAM
  • OMAP4460 chipset (dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU and SGX540 graphics core)
  • Banana jack stereo speaker ports
  • Optical out
  • Ethernet
  • MicroHDMI
  • MicroUSB
  • Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth, NFC
  • Amplifier – 25W class D (12.5 watt per channel)
  • Android 4.0

If you want to see it taken apart down to the last screw, and can take all the bad jokes, check out the full teardown here.
