    Evo 2 console will be like an Android-powered Xbox



    Envizions creation is called the Evo 2, but it's not a smartphone. It's an Android Powered set-top box that connects to your TV for one purpose, video games.

    Its appeal is in the open quality of Android. "Evo 2 is an open console and gamers can modify any part of the system," described Envizion CEO Derrick Samuels.

    There's also a lot of hardware to power the Evo 2 - a 1.2 GHz Samsung chip and 512 MB of DDR2 memory. It will ship this fall with Android 2.2 but is likely to be upgraded over time.


    With Sony cracking down is this the future of gaming ?

    I did think that this would be a cool idea as you could technically just use it for emulators and such. Though the more I think about it I think this can be more suited to a docking station with HDMI out. Then find a way to get a PS3 controller hooked up to the phone via blue tooth and you have this setup without having to spend any extra money (assuming you already own an Android phone)

    Though this still seems a few years away. My Droid X had this setup but the HDMI was crappy and I had to use 3rd party apps to export a copy of the screen that didn't size or fit properly on my TV. Then I couldn't connect any controllers (except the wiimote) In the end I guess I'm hoping for too much now, and especially since the Xperia Play doesn't have HDMI I'm going to have to wait another 2+ years for my dream phone/tv setup.
