Android-based media center box will land in the U.S. this Sunday
Samsung HomeSync, the Android-powered media center device we first played with back in February, is finally ready for its U.S. launch. Released in the U.S. this Sunday, Oct. 6, HomeSync connects to your TV and allows you to play back content from Google Play and Samsung's own ecosystem, using a Galaxy smartphone as a remote. The $299 box comes with a one-terabyte-capacity hard drive and support for up to eight accounts, each of which can have its own sync settings.
HomeSync also allows you to access you stuff on the go, as well as pushing content to the box from a Galaxy smartphone. Samsung says HomeSync owners can register their devices and claim $50 to spend on movies and TV shows from its MediaHub platform.
We got a detailed walkthrough of Samsung HomeSync back at this year's Mobile World Congress show, so hit the link below to find out more about Samsung's latest Android device for the living room.
