Ouya has revealed it will delay the retail launch of its Android-based gaming console by three weeks until June 25th. In an interview with Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman, Polygon reports that the self-imposed delay is to ensure that the company has enough units to “satisfy all the early orders,” and to make sure there’s enough stock ahead of its public launch. According to Joystiq, Ouya has also listened to early feedback on its controller design, expanding the button holes to ensure that they no longer stick — something we noted in our review of the console.
HTC has confirmed it is not currently planning to distribute its Windows Phone 8S handset in US markets.

Acer is no stranger to airing its skepticism of Microsoft Surface, but the company is now adopting caution as the name of the game for its own Windows RT tablets. In an interview with Reuters, company president Jim Wong told the outlet that Acer would deliver its own RT-based tablet no earlier than Q2, as it’s now monitoring how Microsoft’s own hardware fares in the marketplace. According to Wong, Acer had previously targeted a Q1 debut. As it lets Microsoft serve as the canary in the coal mine, Acer will continue to focus on its full-fledged Windows 8 hardware, as well as develop and refine its own RT offering. “I don’t know what’s next, what Microsoft will do,” Wong said. “We are watching how Surface is doing … How is RT accepted by customers… We don’t know… We want to see.”

Here ’ s hoping you weren ’ t planning on utilizing one of Google ’ s Nexus Qs any sort of time soon — the business has actually simply disclosed to pre-order clients that it has actually delayed the tool ’ s customer launch because users wished more from the inquisitive little orb.
That stated, Google ’ s tiny media streamer has actually been unceremoniously pulled from the Google Play store. All interested consumers can easily do now is give the carrier their e-mail address for future updates on the scenario, as there ’ s no word yet on when Google anticipates that full-blown launch to take place.
Fortunately, there ’ s a silver lining to be located here: anybody who currently pre-ordered the Nexus Q will certainly get a programmer unit (a.k.a. the existing component that Google handed out in droves at I/O) for free of charge. Seeing exactly how the programmer device is precisely what those customers pre-ordered in the very first place, I ’ d state they ’ re making out rather perfectly. Still, there are some fascinating new questions at play now — exactly what exactly does Google plan to include in the little man to make it even more of a rival in a room currently crowded with arguably remarkable hardware?
An actual individual interface would be a good place to start; while the dev design links to a television simply great, individuals need to pick content for the Nexus Q to play from a wirelessly-connected Android tool. Being able to telephone YouTube video recordings and movies from the Google Play Store directly on the television screen (maybe making use of those additional Android devices as remotes) might assistance the Nexus better hold its own against the Apple TELEVISION and the Boxee Box. It wouldn ’ t be a shock to see Google cram support for even more media sources into the thing too — Netflix, Hulu, and so on would certainly be wonderful additions to a device that otherwise lives entirely within Google ’ s content environment.
Google is playing its cards close to its metaphorical vest, however for now here ’ s the e-mail notice in full courtesy of Droid-Life:
We have an important update about your Nexus Q pre-order.
When we announced Nexus Q at Google I/O, we presented components to attendees for an early preview. The industrial design and hardware were satisfied with fantastic interest. We additionally heard preliminary comments from users that they wish Nexus Q to do more than it does today. In response, we have chosen to delay the consumer launch of Nexus Q while we work on making it even better.
To thank you for your early interest, we would certainly like to extend the Nexus Q preview to our pre-order consumers and send you a cost-free gadget. If you had additional items in your order, your credit card will certainly be charged for those items only.
Your Nexus Q will certainly be on its method quickly and you will obtain a notification and tracking number from Google Play when it ships.
Despite carrier and retailer indications of delays for certain editions of Samsung’s new Galaxy S III, the company triumphantly announced its launch right on schedule tonight. Of course, here in the US we’re sadly on the outside looking in at the launch action going on in 28 countries as a new day dawns for the 29th, but at least there’s rumblings that our localized editions aren’t far off. In July, its world tour is expected to have swung through 145 countries and 296 carriers. As long as you’re looking for a 16GB Marble White quad-core Exynos juggernaut, you should be able to find it right away — if the machine translated Korean press release is too tough to bear, remember we’ve got all the launch details (and a review) right here.
Hot off the heels of the One X and EVO 4G LTE spending some prolonged time at customs, now another member of HTC’s sensational family appears to be feeling the rigorous effects of the ITC. According to a recent email acquired by TmoNews, it looks as if the Magenta carrier is delaying shipments of the HTC Amaze 4G in the US, saying it’s facing “an unforeseen issue with receiving the product from the manufacturer,” and that it doesn’t know when the handset will be up for grabs again. What’s also interesting here, however, is T-Mobile going as far as recommending Sammy’s Galaxy S Blaze 4G as a substitute — which, let’s face it, can’t be good news for HTC. Here’s to hoping this all gets sorted out relatively soon. In the meantime, you can check out the aforementioned email in its entirety at the source below.

UKers hoping for a hasty rollout of Everything Everywhere’s 4G LTE network are apt to be sorely disappointed, as regulation entity Ofcom has shoved back the final decision on its proposal. We’re told that the ruling will be moved from April 17th to May 8th, with the decision made to give stakeholders more time to respond. With the additional weeks, folks like O2 and Vodafone are expected to voice their own thoughts (read: objections) on the matter, likely pointing out that its proposal would give Everything Everywhere the lion’s share of spectrum in the 1,800MHz range. For now, we’ll have to wait and see what kind of rebuttals are cooked up, and if history is any guide, we’re guessing one or two more delays will be making themselves known before we get a definite answer one way or the other.
That promised May release for the Eee Pad Slider shifted to a rather more ambiguous “soon” a little over a month ago, and now we’re sad to report it’s moving further back still. ASUS has an update on its UK Facebook profile indicating that the QWERTYfied tablet will now be shipping there sometime this Autumn, taking this extra time to throw up some surveys and better “understand what is important for our customers.” That sounds dangerously close to the company’s feet getting a little cold as it prepares to launch the most interestingly designed Honeycomb slab we’ve yet seen, but maybe if everybody leaves some encouraging comments we can get this reluctant bride out of the limo and down the aisle, already.

If you’ve been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the latest shape-shifting slate, it looks like you’re just going to have to wait. Fujitsu’s just announced that it will postpone the release of the convertible TH40/D tablet — the Windows 7 slide-out was originally slated for a late June debut in Japan. Unfortunately, the outfit’s being rather tight-lipped when it comes to details, saying simply that the holdup is due to “development delays.” Of course, we’ll keep you posted with details if / when Fujitsu decides to open up.
