    Those devices are way over priced.

    Exactly.

    Wow. What a smart move on the part of Exo Level. They've trademarked the name Android TV and registered the URL Home . I can see Google, easily, shelling out $10 million to buy the trademark rights to the name Android TV.

    How about the Google auto-upgrades? The cable overlay/prime Time? What's the browser situation like? From the two reviews on Amazon, it seems you can only use the Play Store through a PC; there was some mentioning of freezes and rebooting frequency. and something about rooting to get the system to run optimal. Will it pair with the k700 keyboard? Sounds like a lot of hoops to jump through just to get a box that runs XBMC.

    We'll see but I doubt Google will pay anything to Exo Level or anybody else for rights to use Android TV if they decide to put Android TV on any product package or device. Google owns the rights to use Android and I believe can use any generic name after Android without having to pay rights. Android tablet, Android TV, Android toilet, you name it, I sure think Google can use it without paying fees.

    If what you say is correct, I don't see how Exo Level was given trademark protection for "Android TV".
