    Diamond Announces New AMP2000 Android Player with Google TV Support - Mobile Magazine (click for full article)

    "[CES 2013] Remember the Diamond Multimedia AMP1000 Android media player? Well Diamond is back at CES with a sequel, the AMP 2000.


    Like the AMP1000, you get an Android-based box that is powered by a unique remote, though it looks like a lot of changes have been made to the keyboard/virtual-mouse control with the newest AMP2000.


    They also make mention that it will have Netflix, Google Play and other features found in the first AMP device.


    Besides the new remote, what else is different? This time around Diamond says that the device will feature "Google TV" capabilities, though they are pretty vague on the details here. Honestly, Diamond was pretty scarce on details all around, and so we know little about when this is coming or how much it will cost.


    What Diamond did reveal is that it will arrive in March or April of this year. As for the cost, the original AMP-1000 was around $100, so hopefully this newer model isn't too much more.


    What do you think, interested or not?"

    Will this really be an official Google TV device? Or will it be an android TV device with "Google TV" capabilities? -:)

    Diamond Multimedia intros AMP2000 Android set-top box, availability coming later this year (click for full article)

    "It's been quite a few months since Diamond Multimedia announced it's AMP1000 set-top box, so the company likely figured there was no better better time and place than CES 2013 to release its latest Android-based media offering.

    With the AMP2000, the multifarious company joins the likes of Hisense and FAVI in the powered-by-Google streaming race -- in which it'll give potential users the ability to wirelessly view files on any HDMI-ready TV set, as well as offering support for applications like Hulu Plus and Netflix.

    Diamond Multimedia notes the AMP2000 comes "with Google TV," though it doesn't go into much more detail, and thus it's quite unclear whether this means you get the actual Google TV experience -- you know, the one found on devices such as that Vizio Co-Star -- or if it's something a bit more like Always Innovating's HDMI Android dongle.

    Speaking of the lack of details, mum's the word on how much the AMP2000 will run you when it ships "sometime in March or April," but we can only imagine it to be around the same price as other similar offerings."

    I would say this is not a Google TV box, it is another Android TV box.
