Get Android on your home TV

One of the new products for 2012 debuting at CES is this Android equiped HDMI dongle that connects to your TV. Developed from the company Always Innovating this new hardware puts Androids’ OS on a stick that boasts a Texas Instruments dual-core OMAP 4 processor, 256-1GB of RAM, support for a MicroSD card, WiFi and Bluetooth. Most likely one of the smallest home computers on the market for an OS. Not to mention that this puppy runs 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and lets hope that they increase the size of the USB cable, which is only used for powering the device.

More features on this device include an accelerometer for gaming, voice recognition, NFC (Near Field Communication) support and is all controlled by  “disruptive remote control”. While this can run all of your favorite Android Apps and may incline you to want to run out to your local retailer to buy. Sadly it won’t be on the market for regular consumers, it will actually be licensed to other companies for re-branding and distribution. If your itching to get your hands on one you’ll have to wait until summer 2012 to scratch that itch.

This device is not the first of its kind, last year FXI released a USB/HDMI stick called Cotton Candy but still is yet to be seen on the market.
