At the RCA booth today we got a quick glimpseat something they're working on. It's a 42" full HD TV, that runs Android 2.2 at the same time. The OS can be controlled from the TV's remote or with what looked strikingly similar to the Brando Rii Bluetooth keyboard. The UI is a custom media-centric launcher which allows you to view images and videos on the large screen. Around the back we found a USB port which indicates that you should be able to play external media from your own storage devices.

As you can see in the notecard, the Android TV supposedly has access to the Android Market. We'll have to see what Google have to say about that, and since the TV's network connection was acting up we couldn't try it out ourselves. There is also Flash 10.1 support and DLNA compatibility. Responsiveness was quite good for a large screen device like this one, and we left with an overall positive impression. Whether or not RCA will actually decide to release this device remains to be seen, but it should provide an interesting alternative to the standard Google TV format for those interested.
