According to sources, Google Australia is likely to make their Home speaker, as well as their mesh Wi-Fi system available in Australia at an event next week.
Google announced at their I/O developer conference earlier this year that they would be bringing Home to a number of new countries including Canada, France, Germany, Japan and of course Australia ‘this summer’. Google Home arrived in Canada late last month and will arrive alongside Google Wi-Fi in France in early August.
We’ve now received information indicating that Australia will be seeing both Google Home and Wi-Fi products launched here next week.
The Australian launch is apparently set for Tuesday, when Google will unveil Australian pricing and availability details for their Home and Wi-Fi devices, with both items going on-sale on Thursday.
While details of where to buy both Home and Wi-Fi are still under wraps, it seems likely that JB Hi-Fi will be carrying the Home speaker at the very least, with reports of security barrier banners being erected ahead of the launch showing Google Home. The retailer may also carry Google Wi-Fi as well.
We also expect that the online Google Store will carry the products.
Ausdroid’s source didn’t provide any hints on pricing, though.
We’ll be checking in with Google Australia for the launch details, but we may not have much to share before next Tuesday.
