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.

They should've thrown a qi charger on top of it. Just to show everyone how awesome wireless charging is. It looks like a qi charger.

Pre-ordered mine as well, this will be replacing my 2-year old Roku player.

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.

Well, I've been lurking for a long time. One such as I, never truly dies.
