Envision's Android Powered Game Console

Ever wished you could play Android games on your big screen? Neither have we, but Envision is giving consumers an opportunity to do just that with their new Android-powered game console, the EVO 2.

The console is powered by a Samsung 1.2 GHz processor, an unspecific NVIDIA GPU, and runs on a modified version of Android 2.2. Packed with the console you will find an EVO TV remote, EVO game controller and an HDMI cable, for good measure. If that wasn't enough to whet your appetite, motion control will be added at the end of this year.

Additional features revolve around the social aspect of gaming, allowing users to earn points to purchase Android games with EVO tokens and the privilege of using Envision's new Qquip SMS blogging reward service.

The SDK for the EVO 2 is available now for free, although developers will be subject to an annual $149 fee per unit. If you're quick enough, the first 1,000 developers will get the fees waived. Those who have pre-existing android apps will be happy to know that you can submit them for our gaming pleasure. Since what developers are currently involved, however, it is difficult to ascertain what titles will be like.

To further prove that they are all about what the community wants, Envisions will let you vote on where the system will launch and the general design of the console and its packaging.

The EVO 2 will be released state-side this fall for $249 (roughly PHP 11,205).

  1. This gaming console is going to fail in the market. The price is high and it dose not offer anything better than OUYA Android gaming console. OUYA will be available at $99 price and offer almost every feature to make it successful in the market.
