Popular home entertainment equipment manufacturer Onkyo is set to release its own Android app next month that will allow owners of any 2011 model network A/V receiver to wirelessly control them directly from their Android-powered smartphone. Using a wireless network as its means of connection, the app will also allow users to stream media stored locally on their Android phone, control the volume, select an input source, and more.

TA117


Onkyo has announced a brand new Froyo-based tablet that will launch in Japan. Most of the specifications seem pretty much up to par with what we expect; here's what the TA117 will come packaged with:

  • Tegra 250 Chipset (1 GHz)
  • Android 2.2
  • 10.1-inch screen
  • 1024x600 resolution
  • 2 USB 2.0 ports
  • WiFi & Bluetooth
  • microSD card slot
  • HDMI port
  • 1.3MP Camera
  • Either 8GB or 16GB internal storage

The only disappointing features seem to be the low-quality rear camera and the lack of a front-facing counterpart.
