"Announced in October, the open-source EVO Smart Console and Mirrors Evolution distribution offers game play, Internet access, VoIP, and HD video playback, says Alabama-based Envizions Computer Entertainment Corp. The Console is designed to work with the Envizions "cloud" computing service, where it's said users will be able to find Amiga-based games and an Akimbo-based VOD (video on demand) service with over 10,000 titles.

"The beta shipment for developers was originally set for November, but has been delayed until next week when Envizions will ship its first 100 units, with more systems available later in the year. The system ships with a fast-boot minimalist open-source Linux operating system (OS) called Mirrors, based on Fedora. Users can upgrade to a "more robust version" called Mirrors Evolution X."
