As some of you might already know, ASUS has officially unveiled the Qube Google TV box, which may be one of the most important announcements made by the Taiwanese manufacturer at this year’s CES.
As you probably already figured out from the name, the ASUS Qube is shaped, well, like a cube and it’s the first device that brings something new to a market of elongated set-top boxes. But this device is not all about the looks, it features some neat specs as well.
Are you curious to know what’s under the hood of the ASUS Qube Google TV box? Then join us after the break for more details.
ASUS Qube Google TV Box – Specs and Price
The Qube is running on the current version of Google TV, comes with 50GB of free WebStorage, and will, of course, have YouTube as well as Google Chorme. And when it comes to connectivity, the device has a selection of options. It features a full-sized USB port on its right side, while all the other ports are on the back, where you’ll find another USB port, IR-out and HDMI both in and out and a RJ-45 Ethernet.
In terms of specs, the Asus Qube comes with a Marvell Armada 1500 chipset, 1 GB of RAM and 4GB of storage. We know the storage is rather limited, but we can safely assume that most of the content you’ll be watching is going to be streamed through the cloud, so that shouldn’t be a problem.
As you can see in the picture above, the Qube comes with a remote control that has a neat QWERTY-keyboard on its back as well as a voice command button and motion-sensing. However, in case you don’t really like remote controls, feel free to download an app to your Android device and you can get pretty much the same functions.
We also have an approximate ASUS Qube release date and price tag – it seems that the US customers will be able to score one around March for $150, more or less. But until then stay tuned and we’ll keep you up to speed, in the meantime, share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
