Chromecast who? The real Android TV is here. This is the Nexus Player, a four-inch, half-pound hockey puck of a set-top box designed to watch all your movies AND play your Android games. It'll cost $99 on October 17th.
Powered by a quad-core 1.8GHz Intel Atom processor with PowerVR Series 6 graphics, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, the Asus-built box is the first device with Google's new Android TV operating system on board. Which, if you haven't been paying attention, is designed to be everything Google TV was not.
