Yesterday, Amkette launched Evo TV at a press event in New Delhi at a price of about Rs.10,000 or $200(approx.). Amkette is a well known brand for storage and multimedia technology in India and to prove it once again they launched an Android based smart box. And I must say that we were really surprised to see a plethora of features in the small black box.
First I would like to talk about the remote controller of Evo TV known as the Evo Touch. The controller of the device was something which gives you an splendid experience with its amazing features. Just like a normal remote controllers it has all the basic features such as volume control, navigation, home button, back button etc. Other than the basic features it has a in built microphone for video calling, accelerometer to play games, the navigation pad is touch sensitive as in the Appple iPod so that you can scroll clockwise or anticlockwise to zoom in or zoom out images or webpages and you can also configure the Evo TV remote controller to act as universal remote for two more devices of your choice. By just moving the controller with the help of your wrist you can navigate through the interface and it has button on the back for selection.
The EVO TV is an Android based smart box which runs on the Android’s Gingerbread operating system. Amkette has customized the user interface to make it very interactive and easy to use. The smart box is powered by ARM Cortex A9 processor with ARM Mali 400 GPU. It has an inbulit memory of 4GB which can be expanded via the SD card slot. For connectivity it has 4 USB ports, HDMI, DLNA, WiFi, 1 SD/MMC card slot. It also supports 3G dongle. The Evo TV is capable of running almost all the major file formats so as to prevent you from the hassle of converting videos to make them compatible with you television. It supports upto 1080p full HD to give you a seamless multimedia experience. You can also connect the device with a Webcam, wireless keyboard and hard disk drives.
Like any other android device you can access the Google Play store on the Evo Tv to download apps. For web surfing it has the android stock browser. It also supports social networking with one touch access to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
Amkette Evo TV is a must have device if you have a HDTV. Even if you have a smart TV you should get this device in order to enhance your multimedia experience.
