Perhaps a lot of focus on media streaming and definitely a bit of emulation...

With how small and portable this thing is, it could be great to take around and quickly pop into any HDMI TV to play games or watch movies.
I don't understand though, isn't that the benefit of the smartphone? Pop into any HDMI TV to play games or watch movies?

If you have stock, yeah...
But a lot of the Roms don't quite support the HDMI adapter right yet. (At least for ICS and JB, I think. Entropy fixed that on Froyo and Ginber, didn't he?)
And even then, it doesn't exactly mirror display of the phone.

Something like the Ouya is MADE to work on TVs right out.

I really think this will be a cool gaming device. It'll run android, its meant to be taken apart and messed with, and from I have read its open to development from everyone from game makers to hackers. This is exactly what we want here on are phones given to use in a gaming consule. Like said when they were making this it wasn't made to take on Xbox and PlayStation rather to have you play games on your TV. I watched games played on this think not made for it yet and it works pretty good. Plus this way we can play whatever games we want for free. I will be more then happy to buy one when its out. I really like what they are aiming for and I believe I can have a lot of fun with this as a gaming on it and hacking it.

It's worth my $99 to spend on it. I'm not expecting it to rival the MS or Sony consoles.

Default Probably would use it as a media center

Well, I think this would be a great media center, i'd get it connected to a server computer wich i would store videos, films, photos and everything else
