Amkette has launched its newest offering, the EvoTV. This is a small Android-based device that converts your existing regular television set to a full fledged Smart TV. Since the gadget runs Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), you can install almost any app from the Google Play store onto your new smart TV. It features 4 GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded using a microSD card. The EvoTV has four full-sized USB ports that let you connect peripherals such as an external keyboard, mouse, or hard drive. Your TV can be controlled using a six-axis motion sensing remote control, called the Evo Touch Remote, which also allows you to play most games available on the Google Play store.
