Rumor: Google To Load Android On Set-Top Boxes In Bid For Your Living Room (Again)
According to CNET’s sources, at least one of the devices will run on the NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip, although Intel-based boxes are also expected.
Presumably, this Android set-top box offers some sort of gaming features along with TV and movie streaming. It only makes sense; in addition to the presence of the Tegra 4 chip, Amazon’s Fire TV box is definitely geared toward gaming, and there have been several Android-based game consoles floating around (most notably Ouya). Why wouldn’t Google at least attempt to one-up them all?
We’ll find out more about Google’s plans for our living rooms this week at its I/O conference.
