The Pocket TV is a small pocket-sized dongle that connects to the HDMI port of any regular TV (even your 5-year-old TV) and converts it into a Smart TV. It's basically a fully functioning micro-computer the size of your thumb which runs Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) much like today's latest smartphones. The processing power in the Pocket TV will allow you to display Android on your TV turning it into a mega-sized tablet (just imagine a 50 inch iPad). You can download apps from the Google Play Store to stream videos, play games, connect with your friends on Facebook, catch up on news, do some work or simply surf the web. You can even attach a video camera to do Skype video-calls

going for a smart tv is in any case a bad decision. considering set top boxes from WD and other companies are pretty cheap. they have more features and are replaceable. with a smart tv, you are stuck with what the manufacturer has to offer. with set top boxes, you can pick the one that you like and replace it when newer models with more features are available. i really do not understand the point of going for a smart tv. i agree that you save some space. but as this product has shown, set top boxes can become really portable in the future.

would love if STB becomes portable like this. There would be a big war in industry. Seeing when MNP like thing will come to DTH
