Using the phone as our pointing device, we were able to move around the Jellybean UI, launching apps and browsing Samsung’s Media Hub video store. The device comes with Google Play store so you can, in theory, install any Android app in the world.

The Home Sync itself runs incredibly smoothly - browsing, general UI navigation, and video playback were all buttery smooth - I'm impressed.

I got this free with a tablet, but would not have bought it. The best usage I can think of is really as a cloud backup. don't expect great things as a media server. Quite disappointing for such a promissing hardware.
