Basically, Pocket TV just likes the phones and tablets running Android, but it has no screen. However, when you attach it to the TV via HDMI port, you will have an Android computer with super-large screen. You can play games, surf the Web, watch movies, listen to music and even install applications from Google Play, generally it supports all functions of Android OS, except for making phone calls and sending SMS.

On the top of Pocket TV, there is an HDMI socket to mount to the TV. The only requirement here is that your TV needs to have HDMI port. Pocket TV also has a 2.0 USB port to plug the mouse, keyboard, hard drive..., micro SD memory card and mini USB port to plug the source. It is also integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth so you do not need to attach dongle.

Comes with Pocket TV is a remote control with simple buttons, besides, you can also choose another more advanced remote, it is “Air Remote”, it is integrated QWERTY keyboard and can be used to control the cursor with the same manipulation as the handle of the Wii game machine.

Pocket TV is raising capital on KickStarter and the recent capital is 4-time bigger than requirement. The retail price for a Pocket TV with remote attached is more than 160 USD, it will be sold from this October. But you can buy a set like that with cheaper price at the Kickstarter site.
