Thanks to various leaks, today’s announcement of the Asus Qube Google TV device might not have been the surprise they were looking for, but the home-media system is interesting nonetheless.
Earlier this week it was thought that the Asus Qube could join the Nexus Orb and become a Nexus device, but just one look at the ‘cube’ inspired user-interface can tell us that this is far from a vanilla Google TV install.
As well as the funky rotating “Qube” UI, the Qube boasts 50GB of cloud storage and access to over 100,000 movies and TV shows though Youtube, Netflix and Amazon Instant video integration. No word on what the guts of the Qube are hiding, but we imagine it won’t be long before we get to see the first tear-downs hit the net.
