Multimedia portable devices company Archos has introduced the Archos TV connect, claimed to be the only multi-touch “Android on TV experience” for your apps and games.
The Archos TV connect turns any HDTV into an Android powered smart TV providing the full Android ecosystem with a specially designed TV Touch remote, says the company.
The TV connect allows you to control your TV just like a tablet – tap, swipe, zoom in, zoom out, select or type. With the TV connect, users will be able to play games, stream videos, video chat in HD, email friends or surf the web all from their big-screen TV.
“As a pioneer in multimedia Android devices, we wanted to create a bigger, better way to enjoy Android,” says Henri Crohas, founder and CEO of Archos. “The Archos TV connect provides users with a multi-touch, multi-media Smart TV experience powered by Android.”
The Archos TV connect runs Android 4.1 ‘Jelly Bean’ and will be available starting in February, 2013 for $129.99.
