overview

The TV connect allows you to control your TV just like a tablet - tap, swipe, zoom in, zoom out, select or type. With the TV connect users will be able to play games, stream videos, video chat in HD, email friends or surf the web all from their TV. The TV Connect is running Android 4.1 so you will have access to the full range of apps, movies and music from Google Play. The TV Connect comes with Archos's new TV Touch remote that gives you a full keyboard with Android shortcuts and full multi-touch gesture support. The TV Connect is expect to go on sale this February.

Overall we are impressed. The scaling works on a 1080P screen nicely, the processor is beefy enough to power most games, and with Jelly Bean you son't have to worry about upgrade issues (Archos is promising 4.2 shortly after launch).
