If you follow Android then you will be well aware of the vast amount of TV related products hitting the market in the form of modified USB sticks.
WISI TIVI is the latest company to attempt to make a breakthrough in this market area which is very much dominated with the likes of OUYA and Roku however it seems that they are taking a very different approach to the others by offering 3 very different products to try and cater for all of the markets.
The first of the devices is the WISE TIVI box that will ship with Android 4.1.1 initially (upgraded to Android 4.2.1 later) for $59.99. Inside the box will be an IR Remote, HDMI Cable and USB Cable.
Next up is the $79.99 Portable WISE TIVI box which is a modified USB stick which will also ship with Android 4.1.1 initially (upgraded to Android 4.2.1 later) and will also come with an HDMI cable, USB cable and IR Remote.
The final of the three products is the $89.88 5MP 720p WISE TIVI CAM which will ship as a standalone Android device running 4.1.1 (upgraded to 4.2.1 later) and again comes with the HDMI Cable, USB cable and IR Remote.
Accessory wise there are two options that will work with all the devices. The WISE TIVI GamePad and the WISE TIVI AirPad which will sell for $30 each.
Spec wise you can expect this on all of the devices.
