Asus joins the Google TV space with Nexus Q-like Qube


The U.S. Federal Communications Commission already hinted at the Qube’s existence last month, but now ASUS has finally made it official.

The Qube, Asus’s first Google TV device, which bears a striking similarity to Google’s failed Nexus Q, will soon launch with 50GB of cloud storage and access to Netflix and Amazon Instant Video.

Asus further designed its own Qube interface that “displays functions via a rotating on-screen cube shape,” but customers can control the Qube with Google TV from their Android devices via a Mobile Remote app.

Pricing and launch date details are not yet available, but check out the press release below for more information.
