Yves Behar is in on it, he's the man behind the One Laptop Per Child initiative, which designed innovative, low costing laptops for children around the globe.

devkit shipping with every "console" too

looks promising

Here is the kickstarter project page. No mention of dev kits as it is already based on Android so you just need the SDK, eclipse, etc. They mention it being hackable and easily rooted so I asked about fastboot, NVflash/APX mode, and ADB access. I will post when they answer.

Keep in mind that it should be quite easy to port full AOSP Android to as well as Linux. With a multiboot solution this could be a very interesting device to work with.

Sounds like a pretty awesome console. But will it be able to be found at major retailers?

I am also curious if it will reach the mass market. No doubt that we at XDA will get some development going for it provided it does make it to market. I am interested in the fact that for the price of a Roku you have a device that does far more plus includes a lot of the same features. For gaming I find that at least current mobile games don't entice me the same way as my Wii and Xbox can...

My big question is if the controller connects via bluetooth or a proprietary connection channel. If bluetooth, day one buy for me.

My only concern is if this will still be worth the money when it's released - I think they're aiming for March. By the time we should have a new Tegra platform, and probably a new major Android update

Is it upgradeable like a PC? Is there a modular design?

I put in on the $1337 special. I am not a dev but think this thing will take off.

At this price, it's a total no brainer. You can use it to stream stuff, run emulators, etc.

I got in on the $99 offer.

I wonder if the lack of an optical drive, and no sd card slot, won't restrict the appeal as eight gig can be easily used up. It's the only downside to a nice product.
