This sounds awesome. I hope they add a feature called "show surf" where it takes reruns of your favorite shows and displays them one after another, with an option to skip the current one. This would bring back my old habit of leaving the TV on with the History Channel going while gaming: learning and playing at the same time.

If this can already be accessed by the Kindle line of Android devices, then they better make this "set top" device hits retail for $99 or less.
With a kindle fire only costing $150, ad basically everyone having a smart phone (which can be used as a remote for your kindle). Why would you pay even $100 for a device that does 1/4 of what the fire can do and doesn't have a screen?

The set top box is for those that dont have other ways to get the service.
For non-Kindle or non-tablet owners.
Others who have smart TVs, can get the Amazon service through the TV.

Android based with the ability to play media from local network and update apps would be awesome. But not much different from the Ouya or other android boxes.
