nestA couple of years ago, former Apple SVP of the iPod, Tony Fadell, launched his own company and a new product called the Nest learning thermostat. The device, for those unfamiliar, will learn your habits at home and will be able to adjust the thermostat automatically and according to what it thinks you like, thus taking home automation to the next level.

It was also earlier this year that Google announced that they would be acquiring the company and we guess it is not surprising to think that Google could soon start selling the device themselves. Thanks to a recent sighting on Google Play, it seems that the device could soon be put up for sale.

The listing was originally spotted by the folks at Droid-Life before it was quickly taken down by Google, presumably because the device wasn’t meant to go up for sale just yet. However like we said earlier, with Google now owning the company, it would not be so far-fetched to think that they wouldn’t sell the device themselves as opposed to sitting back and letting Apple handle its sales.

In any case there’s no telling when the device will go up for sale on Google Play, but with the recent sighting, we can only assume that it will be soon (hopefully).
