According to PhoneArena, the Android-based set top box and games console start-up, founded by former IGN executive Julie Uhrman, has already secured OnLive, VEVO, iHeartRadio and XBMC as content providers for its device.

The device is expected to sell for $US99 and will feature a Tegra 3 quad-core chip, 1 gigabyte of RAM, 8 gigabytes of flash storage, HDMI video output, as well as WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity.
