Android Set Top Boxes By iconBit At CES

A Russian company called IconBit has put our favorite little green robot into the set top box. No we’re not talking Google TV we’re talking Android TV like the People of Lava have done with television sets.

The IconBit set top boxes come in 4 varieties. The smallest box is just $99 and offers true HD video playback of virtually any video file. Add the ability to download and run apps and you’re looking at a powerful Android device with a gigantic display once hooked up to your television.

For just a little bit more you can get a 3D powered IconBit box which will deliver 3d over your television set via HDMI and with the power of Android.

More after the break

The next IconBit box features a hard drive for recording programs in bulk. The final box is a variation of the 3D box in a different package.

Iconbit calls these tv set top boxes “Toucan”. IconBit announced at CES that their set top Toucan boxes will support Ice Cream Sandwich which will give the IconBit Toucan boxes even more functionality.
