I want to buy a Multimedia Center-like with android, with usb or microsd support, a good processor, hdmi, and access to the Play Store to download apps like Netflix and MXPlayer, my question is: does this type of boxes exist? Or just buy a used Droid 3 or Droid 4 and connect it to the plasma tv? Not trolling, just asking for opinions, thanks.

go to Archos.com and check out the "TV connect", I think it is exactly what you are looking for

Thank you, I appreciate that... i used my Atrix HD to connect it to the Plasma TV for watching movies and stuff.. and downloading directly to the phone... but i was looking for an Android Box dedicated to that.

Again, thanks for your help :)

why it has to be android? you got better option - much more usefull: My rig is AMD e350 board (sapphire) with bluetooth, usb3, gigabit lan and etc,4Gb ddr3, wireless keyboard with touch pad... it will cost you the same or less but you got 2x the power! based Windows 7 Home, combined with XBMC. You got more than yyou can imagine! and you can do "android" stuff with AMD Android platform - BlueStacks :)

Because I already have 4 or 5 computers in my house, it would be much easier if I buy a low-profile video card with hdmi port to use it, but, I have apps in the Play Store that I already paid and want to take advantage of it on a plasma screen, yeah I understand what you say, but why not trying something new or different? and simple :)

And if I put a PC on my room, my brothers and my sister maybe they're gonna install crapware on Windows, I really don't want to see a One Direction toolbar while surfing the internet lol
