    Evo 2 console will be like an Android-powered Xbox



    Envizions creation is called the Evo 2, but it's not a smartphone. It's an Android Powered set-top box that connects to your TV for one purpose, video games.

    Its appeal is in the open quality of Android. "Evo 2 is an open console and gamers can modify any part of the system," described Envizion CEO Derrick Samuels.

    There's also a lot of hardware to power the Evo 2 - a 1.2 GHz Samsung chip and 512 MB of DDR2 memory. It will ship this fall with Android 2.2 but is likely to be upgraded over time.


    With Sony cracking down is this the future of gaming ?

    This will flop. The last new console introduced was the Wii after their absence for a few years.

    I guess it would be ok for the xperia play type of games. I don't think android has come far enough to implement something like this yet.

    Um, how about we just get HDMI working at full power on phones so we can just use the smartphones for this? or google TV maybe?

    Fine I'll be one of the first to say it....I actually like the idea of this and customizing the console itself is a big plus, if this does go through it will open up big opportunities for freelance app developers in general to create some games.
