    A decent stab at a UI, if the included a movie jukebox it would be a bit more appealing, if there is a decent SoC in it with a GPU there is no reason they can do something a bit more fancy.

    Android network media players have started shipping in other parts of the world, unfortunately the first ones to do so are based of the Marvell Armada 88DE3010 chipset which lacks a GPU so although Android apps run anything that needs OpenGL ES runs at a snails pace.

    Good catch from the build number :)

    ARM9 as the host processor.. I am not keeping my hopes up for the responsiveness of the system, but let us wait and watch.

    If they can make it as feature rich as Windows Media Center, I'll give it a shot. Reply
