Mad Catz announced its slick little micro-console for Android called the M.O.J.O. earlier this year and we mentioned earlier this week that it was ready to ship, and it is now available to purchase. The device is an Android-powered media device that is designed to play all sorts of content including games, apps, movies, music, and TV shows on your big screen in the living room. The console supports content from Google Play, NVIDIA Tegra Zone, and other storefronts.
The device supports 5.1-channel surround sound and has its own handheld game and content controller. The controller looks a lot like an Xbox 360 game controller. The official name for the game controller is the GameSmart C.T.R.L. Mobile Gamepad.
The gamepad has three gaming modes and is Bluetooth Smart compatible. It also has a full array of media control buttons and a mouse mode. The flip of a switch on the gamepad turns the left analog stick into an onscreen cursor controller. The controller also has a travel clip that allows you to connect your smartphone to the controller for gaming on the go.
The M.O.J.O. has 16GB of integrated storage and supports memory cards up to 128GB for expanded storage. It also has a USB 2.0 port and a USB 3.0 port on the rear for access to external hard drives and media stored on flash drives. Connectivity with the TV is via a HDMI port and the console has an Ethernet port. M.O.J.O. has an NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip inside running at 1.8GHz paired with 2GB of RAM and it runs Android 4.2.2. You can buy the M.O.J.O. console now for $249.99.
