1.   
What
Apple TV Can
Do: 
Apple
TV is
able
to stream from iTunes, as well as some online
services such as
Netflix. It can stream local content from PC or Mac as well. The
ability to
stream local content is a big plus for Apple TV.



Nexus Q Can’t Do: With
the Nexus Q, you
are only able to tap into content on the Google Play Store and
YouTube. Hence,
you will only be able to play movies, music and TV shows bought
off the Google
Play Store. So no services like Netflix or Pandora can be used;
these
applications are ones that consumers have grown accustomed to
using.

 

2.   
What
Apple TV Can Do:
It
prices itself at
$99 but offers the equally vast amount of content through
iTunes, and the same
services that the Nexus Q provides.


Nexus Q Can’t Do:
It can’t justify its price at a whopping $299,
with Apple TV
almost providing the same quality of content and services, maybe
even more but
at a price of $99.

 

3.   
What
Apple TV Can Do:
It
h
as
a remote control with a menu and regular video/audio functional
buttons to
control the playback.


Nexus Q Can’t Do:
It does not have any remote control with it. You
can of course
use an Android device to control it, and that Android device
should be running
Android 2.3 or above.

 

The main selling point of the Nexus Q would have to
be its
function as a social media player, with friends being able to
“DJ” at parties
by manipulating the song queues through their Android devices.
Hooked with a 25
watt amp, it can serve as a good sound system, but will
consumers be willing to
shell out $299 just for this cool feature? For now, it seems
that only hardcore
Google fan boys will be drooling over the Nexus Q, and Apple TV
will more than
suffice for most users with its very reasonable $99 price tag.
