It’s a unique device that appears to rely heavily on having an Android device at its heart. But if you do have such a robot in your pocket, you’ll be able to create playlists with your friends. It carries 16 gigs of onboard storage, and can connect in any number of ways:
- Micro HDMI (Type D)
- TOSLink Optical audio (S/PDIF)
- 10/100BASE-T Ethernet (RJ45)
- Micro AB USB (for service and support)
- Banana jack speaker outputs
It’s a $300 device, so it’s not something that you’ll take lightly. But if you want to go all in on the Android ecosystem for your home entertainment, the Nexus X should be an interesting addition. What remains to be seen is how it will fare against other systems such as the Sonos, which aren’t so reliant on Android.
