    "Chinese device maker Huawei has been turning headlines lately with its Android smartphones. But the company also has an Android TV box in the works. It’s called the Huawei MediaQ M310, and it’s one of the few Android devices designed for use with a TV to feature a quad-core ARM-based processor."

    Huawei MediaQ M310 Media Player Based on Quad Core K3V2 Processor (click for full article)

    January 25th, 2013

    "I haven't seen any quad-core set-top boxes on the market (if we exclude some Freescale i.MX6 mini PCs), but this is about to change with Huawei MediaQ M310 media player. The device is based on Hisilicon K3V2 SoC, and comes with 1GB RAM and 4 GB flash.

    Huawei MediaQ M310 specifications:
    SoC - HiSilicon K3V2 quad-core Cortex A9 processor with Vivante GC4000 GPU
    System Memory - 1 GB RAM
    Storage - 4 GB flash + microSD slot
    Video I/O - HDMI out and HDMI in
    Audio I/O - 1x SPDIF, 3.5 mm stereo jack and mic (3-in-1)
    USB - 2x USB 2.0 host ports
    Connectivity - Wi-Fi 802.11n & Bluetooth 4.0
    Huawei multi-screen (Pushing, mirroring)
    Content aggregation / Voice Search
    The box runs a customized version of Android with a user interface designed for the television.


    CSilie, who tipped me about the MediaQ M310, saw the device at CES 2013, and a Huawei representative told him it could also function as a regular Android set-top box, it could stream content from your smart phone or tablet to your TV (I suppose that's what "Huawei multi-screen" is all about, and that it should available in about 3 months for $70 to $80 US.

    Huawei also showcased a larger set-top box based on the same platform called the MediaQ M810, but featuring 2GB RAM, 8GB flash, 2x Gb Ethernet, a DVB digital TV receiver, and 2x 3.5" HDD bays for NAS applications.

    Androidworld.it shot a video (in Italian) of both devices at CES 2013. If your Italian is a bit weak, don't worry, because there's also another video in Hungariaian."

    The deluxe model sounds interesting. I haven't really seen an android box with 2GB of RAM, TV tuner and hard drive bays. I also like that the deluxe model has ethernet. Of course much will depend on how well their customized android software works and the support Huawei provides.

    It sounds like a plus that they claim to have an interface designed for television.
