No need to get rid of your old tv, ICS 4.0 goodness from a dongle...  just as long as it has a HDMi and USB port :)

The lack of touch screen would make controlling it a bit annoying, unless they've come up with something clever. A keyboard and mouse would probably do the job pretty well, or a Wii remote type thing.

It does have motion control, and like the lady said... bluetooth and wifi too, so no doubt it will support keyboard + mouse and other connectivity.

Apparently it also has voice recognition, according to the below link
