CES 2013 - ASUS have unveiled Qube, their Google TV-powered device which comes in the shape of a cube - how would you have guessed? Qube sports a Marvell Armada 1500 chipset, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage.

Connectivity wise, we're looking at HDMI-in, HDMI-out, two USB ports, Ethernet and IR-out. It comes with its own remote control - shock - and sports the usual buttons on the front side of it, with a full QWERTY keyboard on the back. Voice command is on offer here, which makes the most out of Google TV 3.0.

If you don't want to use the remote control, you can download the app onto your ASUS-made Nexus 7, or any Android device in order to get the same functionality. Finally, we're seeing some out-of-the-box thinking here. ASUS should launch the Qube in the US sometime in March for around $150.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
