ASUS was one of the first companies to support the idea of multimedia “set-top” boxes so they have been leaders in exposing the public to HD Media Players since the beginning. As companies like Apple, Netflix, and Hulu anticipate users wanting “packaged” media delivered to households via the internet, ASUS clearly wants to support a large community of users who already have a variety of videos and audio files in their library that they want to share. There is nothing wrong with how Apple & Company approach their business model, it’s just different from what ASUS is going for.
The O!Play does come with some internet-ready apps, such as Picasa and Flickr, plus a weather and stock reporter, but these do precious little to elevate it. There is the promise of an Opera browser in the next firmware update and Asus claims it will continue to add apps in, but at the time of writing those are still a little way away.
