Meet the Qube

ASUS is readying the Qube for launch. The device is designed for use with Google TV, offering access to over 100,000 movies and TV shows from Netflix and Amazon Instant Video, plus numerous apps, videos and games from Google Play.The significance of the Qube is that it will enable Google TV to be used on any HDMI-equipped TV, rather than just those on which it comes preloaded.

The Qube offers motion control and voice search that integrates Google Play, plus YouTube and Chrome. The Qube interface displays functions via a rotating on-screen cube shape, while the remote control supports motion sensing for gaming and other applications.

Customers can also control the device, and through it, Google TV from their Android smartphones and tablets using the Mobile Remote app, available through Google Play. ASUS also includes 50GB of cloud storage with every Qube sold.
