50″ Android TV – the world’s largest tablet?

Posted by on Jun 19, 2014 in Uncategorized

We’ve just taken delivery of the first 50″ Android TV off the production line.

The world’s largest tablet.

That’s not a TV and set-top box, and it’s not casting an Android screen onto a regular TV, it’s one appliance that’s both a fully functioning TV and a fully functioning Android device. OK it doesn’t have a touchscreen (that would get tiring anyway) so you can control it with a standard wireless mouse and keyboard. But it will run any of the apps on Google Play and custom apps can be coded for it to provide a mix of video, interactivity and web content. The apps can also programmatically control the TV, switching it on/off, controlling volume, brightness etc.

We’re currently working on software to drive them in 400 x betting shops across the UK. We’d love to hear your ideas for other great uses of this versatile device!
