Google announces that Huawei will be bringing out an Android TV SetTop box later this year

Android_TV
Android TV had a good day yesterday, with both Sony announcing their Bravia lineup and Sharp announcing their Aquos TVs which featured Android TV running the Smart TV component underneath. Google has acknowledged both these launches – as well as releases from TP Vision – and a gaming console from Razer, which features Android TV, on their blog.

Looking further into the future though, Google has advised that Huawei will also be joining the Android TV lineup, advising :

Huawei is also working on an Android TV streaming media player that will be ready later this year.

Huawei has been dabbling in media players for some time now, showing off their MediaQ media streamer during their Connected Home roadshow in 2013. While Huawei didn’t release the MediaQ here in Australia, we’d love to see what they have to offer.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

The Razor is interesting. Its the big question though SD 805 is 32 bit, how long will it be “current” I;’d expect upto 4 years out of a gaming settop box, and Im not sure this would deliver. also 16gm storage, really I mean com on.; so what I have to attache external storage and then put up with that clunky system
