Pegatron, Nvidia Show Off Bamboo Mini HTPC

Engadget today reports seeing a teeny, tiny HTPC from Pegatron and Nvidia. While the details on capabilities or even software are pretty scant, the device is said to pack HDMI, Ethernet, microphone and speaker plugs around back. Of course, it's also got Nvidia's Tegra 2 inside (announced at CES in January), which we know runs Android or Windows CE and is capable of 1080p and Flash video.

No word on price or release but the bamboo finish sure is cute.

    A Small HTPC that you can hide behind a wall mounted LCD is always a good thing. If you could load XBMC on it then i would be sold.

    If it had a SSD or USB flash drive support I might get it. Otherwise what's the point?

    A teeny tiny media device like this must be limited on storage space, if this is (most likely) the case, then having to run an ethernet (or maybe USB?) cable to it is an inelegant solution if you are placing it either hidden from view or just anywhere in the living room. WiFi stands out as a serious omission in my view

    dreamphantom_1977Why the cheap 1980's woodgrain?
    Err, they said its bamboo... which is actually pretty 'fashionable' at the moment... 80's wood grain effect looked very different to this. Also if you look at the photo's on engadget's site its clearly real bamboo and not a veneer (which I assume is what you mean by 'wood grain effect'), and looks pretty good because of it too.

    The engadget photo's show two usb slots... i dont think flash drive support is likely to be overlooked given the presence of ports.

    I don't care if it IS real bamboo. It still reminds me of my father's Oldsmobile. Yuck. And using bamboo isn't green either. A bamboo shortage is threatening the Panda population. Has been like that for years.
