GboxCanada is proud to be the first to release the New Matricom G-Box Midnight MX2

The new MX2 highlights all of the features that made the original Midnight so popular but now pushes beyond that limit by offering the more powerful dual core Amlogic A9 MX processor teamed with a dual core Mali-400 GPU to deliver 1080p HD and 3D incredibly smoothly while handling Android like nobody's business. Furthermore it has 8 gigs of internal storage which is double the former device's amount. One new unique feature is over-the-air updating which will keep every MX2 up to date with the latest firmware and XBMC releases from Matricom. "Android TV Boxes have the reputation of being enthusiast only devices. We're making a bold attempt to turn this technology into a consumer ready product. Over-the-air updating is a necessity to keep the software updated on the device without requiring the consumer to have a full working knowledge of how to update their system. The idea is to have a system that 'just works'. This updating process is not new to Android devices such as phones, however it is revolutionary to the Android TV Box industry and opens the device up to everybody and makes updating more convenient than ever."

*yawn*

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Does the G-Box Midnight MX2 come with internal bluetooth or do you have to buy an adapter/dongle? I see it says supports wireless keyboard and mouse, but that doesn't necessarily mean it has bluetooth. It could just mean it supports it via an external adapter or dongle. Please let me know asap because I'd like to buy one of these and I need to know if I will need to buy a bluetooth adapter/dongle as well.

Thanks! Smile

Specs from http://matricom.net/products/g-box-midnight-mx2/ no not indicate bluetooth. It even says supported wireless USB keyboard and mouse, which implies what you thought, a dongle.

Can anyone recommend a wireless USB keyboard with touchpad that will work with this Android device? I saw the Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 with Built-In Multi-Touch Touchpad but it doesn't state it supports Android.
