Oh, the irony: $70 Android ICS computer is called the iStick, supports multitouch on up to 120" screens

As small as a USB flash drive, the iStick makes your dumb TV a smart one, as it has up to a 1.8GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory inside with a microSD slot for expansion. The iStick supports desktop resolutions up to 720p, and can stream up to 1080p Full HD movies. Since it has an USB port, it supports wired and wireless USB Mouse/Keyboard, USB Hard Drive, USB Hubs and so on...

PQ labs, be careful with that iStick name because iSue might come and attack you.

I hope they try. But at some point they are gona reach a point where the court system is going to get sick of the bs. All though if they don't own the name that can't do anything

I wouldn't worry too much about that. First of all, you can't copyright a letter. There have been many devices out there that use that lowercase 'i' that aren't made by Apple. It's a trend to get people interested in their stuff because people just love that 'i'.

It is a nice jab at Apple, though. Nothing like taking a shot at a company without the worry for litigation.

I think if the price is right this thing is awesome and I want to do it. Just wonder how accurate it is cause if it works as good as a good touch screen tablet in accuracy than it is freaking way awesome and I want to make a coffy table (aren't you not able to have tv systems on there sides or is that just plasma) or somthing really cool.

Is there any option to connect it to a common AV Tv?

You got me with an AV TV (I don't know what the AV stands for). But just in case it answers your question> it has an in built HDMI port so you can connect most TVs to it.
Anyone knows what's the processor behind?
My guess is a TI OMAP 4470

It is not the 4470 because the processor used is a single core 1 GHz processor.

There are actually two models, and both in this article and in the source site say that the higher model uses a "1.8GHz dual-core processor".
That´s the one I´m referring to.
I´m definitely not interested in the 1GHz one.
