Patriot Box Office Alpine: Android Based Media Streamer
Patriot's Box Office helped the memory company diversify and now it's giving Android a try with the PBO Alpine. Patriot showed me a very early concept of the Alpine running Android 2.2. The experience obviously needs a lot of work but the promise is an affordable Android based media streamer that allows you to run Android apps
There's no market support of course since this isn't an official Google TV deployment, but you could always sideload. Given that this is a concept there's still the chance that Patriot could take the Alpine in a more Google TV-like route when Google makes the source available.
Patriot had no additional information on the Alpine so forgive the lack of SoC details. We'll update this post if we come across any more information.
