When I heard that someone was going to be building an Android powered TV compatible HDMI stick, I knew I had to have one. I hunted down the Kickstarter page with the products information and pledged enough money to get one HDMI stick, along with an upgraded remote control with a keypad.
After the initial excitement wore off, the memory of pledging money for the Pocket TV HDMI stick quickly receded into the back of my mind. Months went by, with each few weeks bringing an update on how the product manufacturing process was coming along via Infinitec, the creators of the Pocket TV. It came as somewhat of a surprise when I finally received a box from Infinitec with my Pocket TV inside. The promise of running a fairly “stock” version of Android on a portable stick that plugs into an HDTV was finally within my grasp.
