Razer might be a name that most of us are familiar with when it comes to high quality game accessories, but it seems that the company is starting to look elsewhere in an effort to expand their market. Razer recently announced plans to roll out a Razer micro-console where this particular new device will be powered by Android TV, where it will gain the ability to stream movies, music and other apps in order to deliver large-screen entertainment in your living room, although it remains true to its heritage by placing a strong emphasis on gaming instead.
Android TV happens to be an entertainment interface which enables users to check out and enjoy content on their televisions, in the comfort of their own home. With the Razer micro-console, one will be able to navigate using a special mobile application which is capable of operating from any Android tablet or smartphone. Not only that, you might want to clear that throat of yours, since voice control is also built into Android TV, so that having access to entertainment is a matter of muttering a few words.
Basically, Razer intends for the micro-console to enhance the gaming experience on Android devices, and hear what Razer co-founder and CEO, Min-Liang Tan has to say about the micro-console, “This is a console of the future. Built on Google’s incredible Android TV platform, the Razer micro-console incorporates not only hardcore and casual gaming, but music, movies and other entertainment and social applications, all on an affordable system.”
So far, there is no word on how much the Razer micro-console will cost, and neither do we have any idea at all on the kind of hardware specifications that Razer will throw into the mix. We do know that it will arrive in a shade of black that many of us are familiar with, and we will have to wait until later this Fall for an official release, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
