Asus Cube (formely Asus Qube) available for pre-order: slightly changed name, price and release date
Asus Qube, the company’s foray into the world of Google TV, was announced in January and then delayed, and is finally available for pre-order.
While it was already a known fact that those who want an Asus Qube would be able to get their hands on the device on April 23, at a price of $130, things have changed (but not too much, really).
Newegg has it available for pre-order, with the first change being the name. The device is no longer called Asus Qube, but rather Asus Cube, and this is most certainly not a mistake on the retailer’s part, as a picture of the box and its contents has been posted, too (you can see it below).
The second difference is the price, which is increased a bit: the $130 has turned into $139.99, but if you pre-order before April 23, you also get a $10 gift card, which makes up for the difference. That brings us to the third change. Should you pre-order the Asus Cube, you’ll get it on April 24, instead of April 23, the previously announced release date (it’s just a day, so it shouldn’t make too much of a difference).
Enough to stoke the flames of interest? We’ll leave that up to you, dear reader. Let us know what you think!
