Google halts Nexus Player pre-orders as it awaits FCC certification

Pre-orders for the company’s latest effort, the Nexus Player, started briefly on Friday, but there was a bit of a problem. The ASUS-made device hadn’t yet been approved by the Federal Communications Commission. As a result, Google was embarrassingly forced to shut down pre-orders just as soon as they began. […] The company plans to ship the device in early November — possibly in time for its original November 3rd release date. In fact, documentation posted to the FCC’s website (first spotted by Engadget) shows that, as of October 19th, the device has received approval. Unfortunately for Google, that approval came two days after it intended to start pre-orders for the device. – Dante D’Orazio,The Verge
