ASUS comes into the Google TV game with the Qube

ASUS, who’s really been getting their feet wet in the Android-sphere lately, has now announced the ASUS Qube, a Google TV device. While the details are yet to come, what we do have is the picture seen above, and a few official words from ASUS. The device has access to Google Apps and movies and TV, and can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet. There is also some sort of “rotating on screen cube shape”, which may or may not be a wonderfully awful idea, as we’ve seen similar UIs fail largely in the past… however, since it is ASUS, we’ve got out hopes up.

Be sure to check out the whole of available information below, and let us know what you think.
