Hisense Pulse Review: The best Google TV set top box yet. - Android Authority


Wednesday 26th of December 2012 / androidauthority.com
Last week, Hisense, a Chinese electronics company, released their first Google TV device. The Hisense Pulse is the second Google TV set top box to come in at $99 this year. As time goes on, Google TV keeps getting better and better, slowly moving from tech gadget to something you’d want your mom to have in her living room. Google TV has improved quite a bit over the past 2 years since the launching of the Logitech Revue, the first Google TV device. Is Google TV ready for the masses? I believe so. Let’s have a look at the Pulse, the best Google TV set top box yet.HardwareAndroid 3.2 (Honeycomb)Marvell Armada 1500 (88de3100) 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, with a 750 MHz GPU1 GB DDR3 Memory4 GB Flash NANDIR BlasterWiFiEthernet1x USB2x HDMI (1 in and 1 out)Remote (includes touchpad, keyboard, and microphone)In comparison, the Pulse has the same CPU, GPU, amount of RAM and the same amount of local storage that comes with the Vizio Co-Star.

HiSense Pulse Google TV set-top box now available for $99


Thursday 20th of December 2012 / phandroid.com
Another affordable Google TV option is hitting store shelves starting today, folks. HiSense is the benefactor for the unit you see below, the $99 Pulse that looks to be a very sleek set-top box with quite the solid remote to go along with it. It’s not some amazing magical artifact or the end all, be all of the Google TV world, but for $99 there’s not much risk to enable your home theater with internet connected bliss.Google TV has been perhaps the most underachieving element of Google’s Android machine so far, but we can’t quite pinpoint what it is. Pricing was to blame initially as the first Google TV unit — Logitech’s Revue — debuted at an obnoxious $300. Since then we’ve gotten some very nice units for that far more attractive $100 price point, including Vizio’s Co-Star. While we can’t be sure how those are selling just yet we imagine things aren’t terribly exciting in the balancing books.Retailers have been quite hesitant to stock Google TV products as of late which is evidenced by the fact that the aforementioned

Hisense Pulse and Google TV at CES 2013


Wednesday 09th of January 2013 / phandroid.com
Hisense was on hand at CES to show off their latest lineup of smart TVs featuring the Android-baed Google TV, a lineup of HD big screens that nicely compliment the company’s smaller Pulse box. If you’re not familiar with the Hisense Pulse, in form and feature it is very similar to another Google TV product, the Vizio Co-Star.The design seems to be the trend with Google’s partners in recent months (see: the Asus Qube). Rather than create a bulky set-top box, Google TV manufacturers are pushing toward smaller devices that take advantage of mobile-sized components. You still get full connectivity, as you would with any other Google TV, as well as a full suite of apps for finding video content and more.While the Pulse will work with just about any HDTV (provided you have an HDMI connection), if you’re in the market for a complete set Hisense also offers their Smart TV range as an all-in-one option from 32 inches and beyond. A quick look around offered a fairly typical Google TV experience on some surprisingly elegant televisions. And the image quality wasn’t

New Google TV Box, Hisense Pulse Now On Sale for $99


Thursday 20th of December 2012 / androidheadlines.com
Who says Google TV has to be expensive? Well if you’re looking for a Google TV box, there’s now a second choice for cheap Google TV boxes. We’ve had the Vizio Co-star which retails at $99, and now we’ve got the Hisense Pulse which also retails at $99. Both of these boxes feature similar specs and functionality. So it’s kinda hard to tell which one is the better value for your hard earned cash.So far there are very few details about the Hisense Pulse, but we do know it has a remote complete with a microphone that will most likely work with Google TV voice actions at some point in the future. Recently, Google TV got access to Google Play which means you have access to your music, movies and TV shows. Although Google TV app support is pretty bad right now. There’s only a handful of apps that support the Google TV platform. These include YouTube and the official Twitter app. You’re also got Plex which is a great app for Google TV, some might call it a must have for Google TV owners.Google has kind of abandoned the Google TV platform, or at least

Vizio Co-Star gets Google TV 3 update, Hisense Pulse to follow soon


Friday 08th of February 2013 / androidauthority.com
The best thing about using cloud-powered devices is the fact that gadgets become better with every update. That’s true for smartphones and tablets (well, in most cases), but also for devices like the Google TVs set top boxes.Today, we’re here to inform you that one of the most competitive Google TV units on the market, the $99 Vizio Co-Star, is getting the update to Google TV version 3.The update brings some bug fixes and performance improvements, but also a couple of nice features, such as voice control through the tablet app, a smarter YouTube app, and the availability of the full Amazon Instant app (as opposed to just a shortcut to the web version) and Vudu. Another neat feature coming to the Co-Star is the new Prime Time quick guide, which lets you flick through programming on live TV, your subscribed YouTube channels, and your recently watched list.As per our colleague and Google TV ambassador Derek Ross, the update is rolling out now, but it usually takes some time for updates to propagate to the entire user base.If you’re using a Hisense Pulse Google TV, you are in for a

Hisense Announces the 55″ and 65″ XT780 Complete with Integrated Google TV


Tuesday 08th of January 2013 / androidheadlines.com
Here’s another OEM you’ve probably never heard about before. But Hisense announced the Pulse not to long ago, which is another Google TV device. And now today at CES, they announced two new TV’s with Google TV integration. A 55-inch and a 65-inch TV. Google TV is integrated which means no set-top box like the Hisense Pulse and comes pre-loaded apps like Netflix, Chrome, Pandora, and Google Play Store which are all optimized for TVs.According to Hisense USA’s Vice President of Consumer Electronics, “The XT780 gives a whole new audience the opportunity to enjoy Google TV.” It’s nice to see Google TV being pushed at CES this year. In years past it was mostly absent. The XT780 also has multitasking  for web browsing and social networking while watching TV. It’ll be cool if their multitasking works similarly to Samsung’s multi-window feature on the Galaxy Note. With Google TV you can intuitively search and sort through millions of channels and shows across live TV, free and paid content services, home networks, apps and the web to delive
