The Tech Report spreads word that Google is said to be working on a Nexus set-top-box. Based on the Android operating system, this new TV add-on will give users access to video streaming services as well as gaming. It's unknown how the Nexus TV box would differentiate itself from the standalone Google TV devices.
In short, it sounds like the Nexus set-top-box will be an Android device capable of running both games and video streaming services. Users will be able to control it with their smartphones or tablets, and Engadget says the thing will be "aggressively priced" and intended as a "gaming box." The Information, which quotes "people who have seen the device or were told about it," says Google could be planning the launch for the first half of 2014.
