SmartKey TV: another HDMI connector that adds Android 4.0 to any TV

Not the first, and apparently, not the last. It seems that the fashion of the moment is sticks that can convert any HDMI TV into an high-end machine, with its own operating system. The product of time is the SmartKey TV, from the Italian company LiquidTV.

Like the earlier products, the SmartKey TV has a similar size to a thumb drive. Your hardware seems to be more relevant to its mission:

  • 1GHz ARM Cortex A9 Processor
  • GPU Mali 400MP
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 4GB of system memory
  • Integrated Wi-Fi B/G/N
  • MicroSDHC card slot
  • USB host

The operating system is Android 4.0, which allows not only the installation of applications and games on TV, but also surf the internet with its integrated browser, or simply video conferencing. The product comes complete with a remote control specially designed for the equipment, remote control via smartphone (via an application) and prices of €99 for the standard model with IR remote control and €199 €129 with the remote with 3 way gyroscopic function and air mouse feature(like wii remote).
