ASUS QUBE launching April 23rd

After missing the Q1 mark ASUS originally set for the ASUS QUBE release date, the company was finally ready to come clean with a solid date. GTVSource.com has learned from an ASUS representative that the Google TV unit would be launching April 23rd. Said to be coming in at $130, the device is a cube-shaped Google TV box that will also utilize a custom cube-like user interface ASUS built. It’s Google TV like we’ve never seen it before, but you’ll still get all the benefits of the vanilla Google TV experience you’ve come to know and love.

No further details about where, exactly, the device would be offered could be had, but we’ve reached out to ASUS to see if we can drill any further. We got our hands on the ASUS Qube at CES and it didn’t take much to get us excited about its arrival. Now that we know when it’ll be on its way it’s a good time to ask — will this rejuvenate your interest in Google TV or is the cube interface ASUS employs not enough to pique your interest?

    If I’m going to get Google TV, I might as well get the Ouya. In my case at least.

      O_o does the Ouya support G-TV?

        No, and it won’t have the Play Store on it. But it will be able to do a lot of the same things though. (And I’m sure the store will be hacked into it in no time.)

    Liking the hardware (especially the cube shape) but won’t get it because of the interface. Have a bad taste in my mouth for low-end devices with manufacturer skins on them, as they take forever to get upgraded. I wish Google released a “Nexus” line Google TV system. Stock, updates directly from Google, I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

      Considering ASUS is one of the fastest manufacturer to update it’s devices, and one that doesn’t try to change the UI much, I wouldn’t be too worried about this.

    I’m hoping it has hulu on board and amazon instant. I would buy at least 2.

      I have a Vizio co-star it has amazon but no hulu yet

    Can’t watch the video because I’m at work, but if we can plug in hard drive/usb key and if it plays most video formats, this would be a must buy for me. My old Asus media player is starting to die on me.

    I’m tempted to buy this but afraid it’s just going to fall short. I’m really hoping Google surprises me this year at I/O with GTV news. I have both the latest Sony offering and the Revue.
