It’s no Google TV, but Archos’ latest offering puts Android front and center in the big screen. Their newest Android device, TV-Connect, allows you to access the wonders of Google’s OS on your existing TV. The TV-Connect is essentially an Android computer and is powered by a 1.5GHz multi core CPU and 1GB of RAM, topped off with 8GB of storage and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. To control the shenanigans on screen, the TV-Connect uses a handy remote that has a keyboard built into it, along with analog sticks and a d-pad to duplicate multi-touch gestures and swipes.
What’s nice about the TV-Connect is that since it’s an Android device, you’ll be able to access the thousands of apps available in Google Play. You’ll also be able to go online, stream content from the web and do all the other things that normal Android devices can. The Archos TV-Connect should be hitting stores overseas in February with an attached £99 price point, or about Php 6572 before taxes.
