That would be because we like to stick to cellular capable devices.

Assuming you're not interested in the gaming aspect of this, are there really any advantages to this over the Chromecast.  Speaking of which, I saw a new one passed through the FCC but, don't know of any differences between the 2013 model.

for me, I want to be able to run xbmc/plex/googlemusic directly on the client instead of casting from a phone/tablet.

 

I'm a big fan of googletv/androidtv and basically having a whole android device built in to the tv (or small separate device such as the google player).

 

Implementations up to this point have left a lot to be desired, but I believe the concept is sound.

 

I also have several NAS storage devices with a ton of local media that other members of the house can access on the tv without having me (or my phone/tablet) being around.

Will it run Google Voice for SMS notification on screen?

I note it's an Intel Atom processor, not an Arm. Which means it's x86 or x64.

 

Which means one could theoretically run Windows on this.

 

HMM. Tests.

    • Interesting, T-Mobile is demolishing a Sprint B25-only site that even Sprint wasn't using anymore. Sprint moved from that pole to a former Clearwire site on a nearby much taller mast but never demolished this original site. Up through 2021, there was still power to this site. Some time during COVID, the lights on the RRUs were no longer lit.  https://permitsearch.mybuildingpermit.com/PermitDetails/ENR24-01067/Kirkland Streetview 
    • I noticed that on my Boost line. I ended up mapping some 2G on Cellmapper because of that lol. Looked like it would connect to T-Mobile 2G for a bit and then disconnect and show no signal. Thankfully it's back up and running.
    • Outside expert explanations of AT&T outage: https://www.lightreading.com/mobile-core/at-t-s-outage-twists-up-its-mwc-story
    • Service just restored in Columbus Ohio on AT&T network.  They seemed to do it in the following order: business (done early) then 5g hours later then ADSL and 4g about 4 hours after business. Then texting and wifi calling that was not setup before. At one point they were trying to route calls on T-Mobile 2g, but that failed.
    • Nationwide AT&T outage occurring right now affecting all of their brands, MVNOs, and even FirstNet. Although this kind of outage is rare, I bet Verizon and T-Mobile are both gonna try to use this to pull First Responders to their network or at least consider them for backup services. https://www.theverge.com/2024/2/22/24079910/att-network-outage-sos-mode
