SlimPort Nano Console trasforma Android nel centro dell’intrattenimento e del lavoro

Nicola Ligas -

Slimport ed MHL sono due facce della stessa medaglia, e servono a collegare diversi dispositivi Android a monitor esterni, non da ultimo quello del televisore nel nostro salotto, per trasformare smartphone e tablet in qualcosa di più: console, media center o anche piccoli PC, con i quali lavorare comodamente tramite mouse e tastiera. Sull’onda di tutto questo, Analogix Semiconductor, creatrice di Slimport, presenta Nano Console, un box a cui collegare i nostri dispositivi, e che si occuperà di trasformarli in…”qualcosa di più”, per l’appunto.

Non si tratta infatti di un dispositivo stand-alone, come il nome potrebbe anche far intuire, ma di una dock in cui inserire lo smartphone, dock che sarà poi collegata a TV o monitor, e con la quale potremo interagire grazie anche al telecomando wireless, chiamato non a caso Nano Remote, fornito in dotazione.

Di preciso non conosciamo ancora tutti i dettagli, ma l’apertura di un (per ora scarno) sito ufficiale ci lascia ben sperare. Nano Console sarà inoltre disponibile in pre-ordine a marzo 2015, con spedizione previste entro l’estate, ad un prezzo di circa 50$. A seguire il comunicato stampa originale.

The NANO∙CONSOLE’s innovative and intuitive control functions, coupled with today’s powerful smartphones and tablets, offer increasingly mobile and cloud-centric consumers a new way to enjoy the freedom of on-demand multimedia without the limitations of traditional living room set-top boxes, play video games without the need of costly game consoles, and perform mobile office productivity tasks without having to carry a personal computer, anytime, anywhere, with one universal device. The integrated wireless NANO Remote provides user-friendly and efficient control features, offering consumers comfort and convenience while enjoying over-the-top video content and Internet applications.

“With today’s powerful mobile devices becoming the primary source of video and audio content, consumers rely more on their mobile devices to avoid house-bound subscriptions and the clutter of cables and equipment in the living room. We see the NANO∙CONSOLE as a game-changer that truly puts the smartphone and tablet at the center of the connected digital world,” said Andre Bouwer, vice president of marketing for Analogix. “The NANO∙CONSOLE has an elegant, yet affordable design, which makes it a perfect fit for today’s living room or office desk. It’s so simple that if you know how to use your smartphone, you know how to use the NANO∙CONSOLE.”

The SlimPort NANO∙CONSOLE will be available for pre-order in March 2015 and will start shipping in Q2 2015. Hands-on demonstrations of the NANO∙CONSOLE are hosted at the SlimPort booth #15126f in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2015.
