using a keyboard and mouse works well in any launcher so it wouldn't be to hard to work

I could have sworn that an official from the team said something about stock launchers. The product is supposedly going to be launched with an easily unlocked mechanism for quick and powerful tweaking. This is supposed to be day one. Keep up on their blog, and ask for this on their social channels, my advice. They are definitely involved c:
HTC One M7 (GPE)
Stock Android 4.4.2

Google Nexus 4 16GB:
ROM: Paranoid Android 3.15
Kernel: Franco Kernel M1
Bootloader: Occam JDQ39
Recovery: TeamWin Recovery 2.4.4.0

HTC EVO V 4G:
ROM: CyanogenMod 10.1
Kernel: HTC Stock
Bootloader: 1.04 ENG
Recovery: TeamWin Recovery 2.4.4.0

Could the OUYA launcher be ported to an Android tablet or smartphone?

I would pay if ADW, Nova or Apex created a OUYA specific launcher...

If you want the ouya launcher download the SDK from OUYA.tv and install the framework and launcher via regular side load. Proven to work on the nexus 7 and I can vouch for the Nook tablet 16GB from first hand experience. Does not look good on a phone though. In order to run the latest addition you need android 4.1+

I sideloaded Nova Launcher very easily onto my Ouya. No modification needed. Works great. Little difficult to navigate with the controller, but definitely doable. Can access your Ouya games there and everything. Much more smooth than the Ouya launcher, that's for sure.
