Submission + - Qubi Set to Reinvent the Media Center with Kickstarter Campaign (kickstarter.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Qubi is a new digital media center that incorporates powerful internals with an impressive user interface based of XBMC for Android providing users access to over 1 million apps in the Google Play Store including media streaming apps and console quality games. Qubi’s ability to add movie posters, CD cases, images, ratings and description for all local media creates the most complete entertainment experience at the $119~129 price point. Qubi will be based on the Snapdragon 600 SoC, which is the same chipset that the New Nexus 7 is based on. Featuring a state-of-the art remote control, Qubi will also enable any iPhone or Android to be used as a remote. Qubi seamlessly combines a casual gaming console, streaming media box and local media player, making it a new and fresh addition to the current market. Qubi’s Kickstarter campaign will end on December 7th, 2013, with a July 2014 planned release.
