Google is making a Wi-Fi router as part of its ambition to provide better Internet connections that make it easier for people to access its digital services and see more of its online advertising. The device will go on sale in stores in the U.S. and Canada for $269 (Canadian) in late August or early September. Google is touting the cylinder-shaped OnHub as a leap ahead in a neglected part of technology.

OnHub will be compatible with Zigbee & Thread, Bluetooth Smart and one of the first Google Weave Standard offerings as well – Here comes another big player Home Automation hub!

Hmm, Z-Wave is missing?!
