The Nexus player was put up for pre-order on the play store last week but was again removed as its approval from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) was still pending.

It is now back again after getting the approval. You can now pre-order it at the Google Player Store.

The Nexus player is a set-top box that allows users to stream TV show and movies, music, and play Android games.

It is a requirement in the United States that certain electronics devices must pass through the FCC for approval. Before then it is technically illegal to sell them.

Google stated at the bottom of the Nexus Player page that the device had not been approved by the FCC and therefore was not for sale until the approval is obtained.

The device was therefore switched off from “Pre-order” status to “Out of inventory” status.

Fortunately, the Nexus Player passed through the FCC over the weekend and now it sis back at the Google Play Store. You can pre-order it at $99 and it will be shipped in 3 to 4 weeks.

The device is manufactured for Google by Asus. It is a small sleek Android-based device measuring 120 x 120 x 20mm. it has Imagination PowerVR Series 6 graphics and is powered by a 1.8GHz quad-core Intel Atom processor. It has 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac.

It has a remote control that supports voice commands and there is also an optional Gamepad to play Android games on TV. The Gamepad costs $39.99.
