At first I thought I have no need for this device since I have an Xperia Play, but now I might get it to replace our current HTPC, which is an old HP laptop with broken screen. But I like to know if it will get CyanogenMod, which seems likely.

We only watch videos from online and some web browsing. Adobe Flash is needed though, I hope its easy to side load apps. As long as I can use a USB hub to connect mouse, keyboard and getting the logitech usb gamepad to work. I really like hear from anyone who already have the device and their experience with connecting USB peripherals to it.

Android is the platform, however it will be based around cloud gaming as well. It comes with OnLive cloud game streaming support.

I think android devices will bring a head on impact with others in the console market.

I understand for $99 this is a pretty decent deal but what I don't understand is why someone that has a tegra 3 or better phone/tablet needs this?

Why can't you just use the video out on your current device with a bluetooth controller to play games?

Am I missing something? I'm just trying to figure out why I would buy this device if I have a newer smartphone/tablet and bluetooth controller sitting around? What have I overlooked?
