Google just sent an email to customers who pre-ordered the Nexus Q to announce it will postpone the consumer launch of its media-streaming device.

The Nexus Q originally received a mid-July shipping time, but Google apparently decided to go back to the drawing board over “initial feedback from users.”

Google is apologizing to those who pre-ordered the $299 Nexus Q by sending them a free one. The U.S.-made device is akin to an Android- and Google services-compatible Apple TV, but it does not run apps.

Google’s email is below.
