AMEX Digital rolls yet another Android-powered device onto the already cluttered scene in the form of the MP-G7 Android TV Media Player, but as you can tell by the name of the device itself, this is going to be very, very different from yet another Android smartphone or tablet. First of all, let us set the record straight – the MP-G7, even though it is powered by Android, would feel far more comfortable huddling in front of your TV at home instead of being brought out wherever you go.
Underneath the hood lies a dual-core ARM Cortex processor that is capable of delivering full HD video output over HDMI, in addition to USB device support including a keyboard and mouse. An SD memory card slot is also thrown into the mix, not to mention LAN and Wi-Fi connectivity. It won’t come with a hard drive though, but you can always stock it up with a 2.5″ hard drive of your choice.
Interestingly enough, it will be able to run Android applications from its unofficial marketplace, now how about that? No idea on whether the MP-G7 will arrive Stateside or not, but if it should get through the FCC, expect to fork out around $200 for this puppy.
