Or you could buy a fully functioning 7" tablet with the same specs and HDMI out for £15 more.

If it works well, then its hot, no pi**ing contest necessary.

Find it odd that people don't see the use of this. I mean, add keyboard, mouse and HDTV, and you've got a basic computer that you can chuck in your pocket. Load up google docs and you've got a portable office. Movies, music, whatever apps you like. Even use it as a thin client with an rdp app, to remote to your home or office PC.

I totally reckon these are gonna be the next big thing (as wireless dlna is taking it's sweet time).

My TV is 4m away from my couch so this will work nicely for me and I won't have any wires trailing.
For those who want a tablet, you might want to put a link on to the £49 one that you mention :)

I've ordered one but it'll be a couple of weeks before I'll get it.

I have doubts about how well this will work. Also, you'll have to get some kind of remote or keyboard and no guarantees it will work with it etc. I'll wait for OP to get his and give feedback. Have not voted.

Sounds like a waste of £15. This device is meant to be stuck behind the telly and used. What's the point of buying a tablet if you're just going to put it somewhere inaccessible?

Seems like a nice product on paper apart from no MKV support.The only thing i would be worried about would be the wifi strength in a usb stick.May work a few meters away

As it's Android, I'm guessing there will be something in the Market that can add MKV support.
You may be right about the wifi but you could get an HDMI extension to move it a bit closer to your router.

Fair comment - I was willing to spend the £34 on a bit of a gamble but I can't see them going out of stock or upping their prices in the next few weeks.
The same product is available from lightake too (a little more expensive):

there are some interesting posts on their website...
hd movie streaming
how to do inputs

if you want to stream something you seem to have to connect it physically via USB to the source and manouvering it you need a usb keyboard/mous combo and for power supply you need the usb slot as well...but there are not enough slots....
....I think I stick with my tablet and 3m hdmi cable....unless someone can prove that i can stream a hd movie wirelessly via this gadget

I asked their support guys in live chat but they had no clue...

If you are willing to buy from china like this deal, then a £50 tablet is easily found. I payed just over £60 for a 8" 1024x768 tablet. This device will need a keyboard or mouse to function, whereas a tablet needs nothing more than a cable.

Yes, a 4m cable.
For a tablet to work in my room without a hazardous, unsightly cable running across my room, I'd still need a wireless keyboard & mouse so that's why I said horses for courses.

and for this "wireless" gadget you still need a wired (via usb) or wireless (via usb dongle) keyboard/mouse combo..and you would not be able to stream hd videos from your external HDD or a notebook without a wire.......but to transfer your TV into a smart TV with internet access it is a suitable gadget...

Looks like an interesting little device with a lot of potential. Although I'm looking at it as less of a TV add-on and more of a Raspberry Pi type little box.
