Google TV hasn’t had the runaway success that Android has, but that hasn’t stopped Google and OEMs like Logitech from trying to turn it into something. According to some information leaked from the FCC, it appears that ASUS is next up on the list to try to get Google TV into living rooms.
The FCC has approved a new device called the “Qube” manufactured by ASUS that works similar to a Roku, but built into a small USB dongle, turning the host device into a full Google TV experience. Sounds kinda cool, right? On top of that, some remote apps in the Play Store also link to the Qube. The apps apparently aren’t working with other Google TV boxes, though. If this device turns out to be priced competitively, I could see it gaining steam where the other Google TV devices failed. Hit the break for the source and the Play Store apps.
