Android 4.0-based HDMI dongle, Kickstarts the Pocket TV

The Pocket TV: Makes any TV a Smart TV

A Technology project in Dubai, United Arab Emirates by Infinitec

 Infinitec was CES 2010 with a simple USB stick that promised to enable ad hoc streaming, claiming to bring "infinite storage" to PC users. I guess the product has some  issues, and the company's been silent ever since.  
The new product is an Android-based HDMI dongle -- not entirely unlike a  few others -- which is being dubbed Pocket TV.  Plug into a television, and Skype from the TV, show PowerPoint presentations without a laptop connection and access files on Dropbox (or any other cloud-based Android app). Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) is onboard, with a gyro-equipped keyboard remote that allows control with  hand motions.
