A few days ago Janet posted about Mini X TV Box from Brando that turns your TV into a smart TV by making it a monitor for Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). I thought it sounded like a really cool product until I heard about a new Kickstarter project called Pocket TV. The Pocket TV is an HDMI dongle that when plugged into your TV, will turn it into a large screen Android Ice Cream Sandwich device. The dongle packs a 1GHz processor, WiFi, microSD card slot and a USB host connector into a very compact package. I was also very excited to see that the Pocket TV has access to the official Google Play store so that you can easily install apps. This Kickstarter project was just announced a few days ago and has already been completely funded. A pledge of $110 will get you a Pocket TV with an IR remote and a pledge of $135 will get you a Pocket TV and the wireless air remote. Either way, this product will be shipping in October. I want one!
