Well it looks like Google is finally wanting to get in on all the action and create their own version of an Android console. Now I know this is going to sound crazy, but apparently they are going to call it the Nexus Player (Taking a page out of Amazon's playbook on that one). Now of course this will probably integrate directly into the GooglePlay marketplace. I hate to say this but this might really kick the little guys around pretty bad. I'm talking to you OUYA, GameStick, and hell maybe even the Amazon Fire TV.
Now here's the bad news, they have suspended pre-orders until the FCC approval process is complete. So I guess all we can do is look at the goodies being listed, and of course watching the site to see when you can pre-order again.
Here are the components being listed:
- 1.8GHz Quad Core, Intel® Atom™
- Imagination PowerVR Series 6 Graphics 2D/3D EngineMemory
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB storagePorts
- 18W DC power

- Micro-USB 2.0Wireless
- 802.11ac 2×2 (MIMO)
