Something else that will impress is the Nano Console from Analogix, which plugs into your SlimPort compatible smartphone, and plugs directly into your TV. It comes with a little touch-capable remote that makes using your Android-based smartphone on your TV a breeze. The Nano Console will be entering mass production shortly, with an estimated arrival of sometime next month.
