In addition to the expected flood of tablets and ultrabooks, ASUS has announced a new cube shaped device–called the ASUS Qube–that runs Google TV. Similar to the Nexus Q without the expensive analog audio hardware, the ASUS Qube is a box that is designed to bring streaming media to your living room. In this case however, the ASUS Qube is running Google TV and is paired with motion, voice, or Android smartphone controls for input.
The Qube can access Netflix, Amazon, and Youtube for video content along with other standard Google TV applications. It can also display a customized TV guide and play games, for example. ASUS has paired the aptly-name Qube with a new interface that displays on screen options in a rotating cube.
To sweeten the deal over other Google TV boxes, ASUS is throwing in 50GB of WebStorage cloud storage space with each Qube.
Unfortunately there is no word on pricing or availability for the ASUS Qube.
