The top of the packaging shows this device is created from the Pivos Technology Group at the top, with a green TV looking logo centered in the panel with a play icon on the screen as part of the XIOS name. Under that you see the DS Media Play and icons showing that this runs Android, HTML5, Chrome and APK.
This side of the packaging offers the Android logo waving over the black block containing information that Android and Chrome are registered to Google and all other names and trademarks belong to the respective companies.
Rotating the box clockwise shows a description of just what the XIOS DS is and does. It then carries into the super small form factor of this device and just how much they can pack into such a small device.
Continuing the clockwise spin, you are then shown that the device is 3.3" square, although unless my ruler is made funny, my XIOS DS is 4" square. The unit ships with the default OS being Android 2.3, but with an update you are given Android 4.0 right out of the gate without even having to deal with this OS.
The last side of the outer packaging gives you a full list of the onboard components, network capabilities and the connectivity and storage options. If the list isn't enough to get the idea, the text on the right gives you ideas of what to use it for.
The bottom of the box also offers a bunch of information about the supported formats for the video, audio and images. Really everything they could think of about the XIOS DS can be found here. The clear plastic band you see is actually a handle to separate the box to expose the device inside.
With the top off of the box, you see that the XIOS DS is shipped in high density foam. Since the device is less than an inch thick, a cardboard shelf allows this to sit above the included hardware and goodies you will find under it.
