It appears the Nuvola NP-1 may start shipping soon.

Posted the following on their FB page:
Quote:
Will the NP-1 have an Android app available for Android tablets that will allow the tablet to control the NP-1? If true, can the app use audio and/or video play-list? Same questions for iOS devices.

Does the NP-1 have an IR input so programable universal IR remote controls can be used with it? If so, has URC been provided with the IR codes?

Anyone here have one of these? If so, can you answer the questions above.

Here is the NanoTech response:

No IR is available, only Bluetooth and wifi.

We will have Apps available in the future for controlling the NP-1 via Smart Phone, but not initially.

Cross off another one on my list unless they produce a nifty app for it.

Hello Wendell,

I’m sorry, I am unfamiliar with an app to perform as you are seeking.

Bluetooth enabled. A USB dongle is required to use with IR.


I wish them well but at this point they appear to not have their head and their dark spot wired together frown.gif.

I sent them an email a couple of weeks ago asking about the availability of the NP-1, got an reply today from Nanotech saying this:

Dear Valued Customer,
We appreciate that you are anxious to receive your Nuvola NP-1. Please understand many people do have units, including several of our BETA Testers. We have had a slow and deliberate roll-out of this ground breaking product. The controlled release is very important to a successful large scale product launch. We are innovating on several fronts at the same time including the delivery of 4K to the consumer, as well as the most advanced set top box ever developed. In addition, this is the first consumer electronics device that NanoTech has produced. All of these factors have been combined in the company taking a very conservative approach to releasing the product. As the very wise saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression.

The amount of interest and demand for the Nuvola NP-1 has surpassed our expectations and in effort to deliver the best possible experience based on feedback from our BETA testers, reviewers and distribution and retail partners, we have decided to make a few of the current enhancements that we have part of the general release.

Based on our feedback from early users, we have decided to go pre-install the new operating system, Android 4.4 at the factory. In addition, we have upgraded our Remote to include a motion sensing system, and we have added some new features and valuable software including the new OUYA game library. We have re-submitted the product for approval with Google using the 4.4 OS release. Once that is approved, we will ship out the remainder of the back-orders.

As anyone in this industry can appreciate, delaying a product launch for fine-tuning and feature enhancements is common practice and ultimately leads to happier customers and resellers. Because NanoTech is at the forefront of the 4K Ultra HD revolution, we want to ensure that the customer experience is the best that we can deliver.

They are shipping now. On Amazon as well. I think most people are waiting on reviews from CNET, etc. to determine where this product will fall in the grand scheme of 4K players.
