If you haven't gotten sick of hearing about OUYA yet, there is good news for you! We have more information about the hardware design thanks to a Q&A session going on over at Kotaku. One of the biggest surprises so far to come out of the Q&A session is the fact that the OUYA unit itself will be roughly the size of a rubic's cube, making it a rather compact console.
Back during GDC 2012 we filmed and tested a bunch of demos that ARM has running at their booth which was to show off the Mali chip. Recently they released a video showing off Timbuktu, a racing game with some pretty nice eye candy. Today they have released a slew of videos showing off the Mali chip once again.
Yesterday we reported on ZTE who had been teasing the world for the past week about unveiling an 'advanced gaming smartphone' for Android. Today ZTE has unveiled their new Android phone called the Grand X and if this is what an 'advanced gaming smartphone' is supposed to be, they should have released it last year.
Last week an Android-based gaming console called OUYA was announced, and it had its own Kickstarter page to garner funds from the public. What happened next was phenomenal by all accounts. They shattered many records on Kickstarter, among them the fastest campaign to reach $1 million and the most funds collected in 24 hours. Right now funding sits at just over $5 million with 22 days still to go.
ZTE is apparently making what they are calling the next 'advanced Android gaming smartphone' and we won't have long to wait before it will be unveiled. In fact, according to reports, this new gaming smartphone will be officially unveiled on July 18th, which is tomorrow.
This morning we reported on the OUYA's new Kickstarter project. Well now we are happy to report that barely after 8 hours have passed, OUYA is now completely funded on Kickstarter. In fact it has already surpassed the $1 million dollar mark and it still has 29 days to go.
Last week we reported on OUYA, a project that is being undertaken by some pretty big names in the design and gaming industry, which will bring an Android home game console to us for a mere $99 bucks. Aside from being up on AngelList for seed funding, the developers have also tossed it up on Kickstarter.
Amazon looks to be gearing up to jump back into the Android hardware battle but this time offering up a few different Kindle Fire 2 models as well as apparently working on an Android phone as well. While the Kindle Fire 2 release is fairly close according to reports, their apparent Android phone might be awhile.
We haven't reported on a unique Android running product in awhile, especially when it comes to possible gaming consoles that will run our favorite operating system. The last time we were reporting on a product like this was back when the EVO 2 gaming console was under development and looking for funding.
