The smart box for the television
has evolved, and it called the Amkette EvoTV. This Android-based media centre for the TV, gives it almost all the powers of a smart TV too and much more. There is browsing, apps, wireless connectivity, DLNA and, of course, the ability to play any media content thrown at it.
Available for Rs 9,995 this box will also come with a user-friendly touch remote which has a built in accelerometer so that users can play most games available on other platforms. The device also acts as an aggregator for all kinds of net content, especially YouTube videos and multi-media from other channels.
The interface, called Evo View, has been customised by Amkette with users getting the power to change the view as they like. The device features an ARM Cortex A8 + ARM Mali 400 Graphics processor and has about 4GB of inbuilt memory to store the apps. With four USB and an Ethernet port, it has the potential to become a hub for all entertainment content in the house.
