Well, what a bombshell. No sooner has the Chinese government announced a relaxation of its ban on games consoles, than Huawei, the preeminent Chinese manufacturer of telecoms equipment, revealed its Android-powered microconsole, the Huawei Tron.
Just as China finally lifts its ban on foreign video game consoles, one of its biggest electronics OEMs has announced a new Ouya competitor. It’s called Tron, and Huawei hopes to sell it for less than $120. The console itself is about the size of a soda can, and its minimalist exterior hides some pretty impressive ARM internals. Huawei opted to one-up Ouya by dropping in an Nvidia Tegra 4processor and 2GB of RAM. They may offer two different models, one with 16GB of storage and another with 32GB.
