We got our hands on Mad Catz' MOJO Android box this past summer, giving the small device a run through. Earlier this week, both a release date and pricing for the device were announced, with the Android box being slated for release in December a bit before the holidays. Following this, now word has surfaced about another feature it offers -- PC game streaming to a television.

Not much information was provided on this welcomed functionality, though it was noted that those who nab the device won't find the feature there out of the box. Instead, Mad Catz will be rolling out a software update a short while after the gadget's launch, bringing the feature. Meanwhile, the means by which the game streaming will happen wasn't detailed.

As for the console itself, MOJO is about the size of your palm and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, bringing access to the Google Play Store. There's an NVIDIA Tegra 4 quad-core processor under the hood, and with it also comes access to the NVIDIA Tegra Zone for more games. Connectivity includes Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI with 1080p support, two USB ports (2.0 and 3.0), and 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi.

Rounding out the specs is a standard 3.5mm audio jack, a couple gigs of RAM, a 100Mbit Ethernet port, and a microSD expansion slot. Mad Catz has pegged the Android console with a $250 USD price tag, and tosses an HDMI cable, travel clip, USB Nano dongle, and a wireless gamepad into the mix. Stay tuned, and we'll update you when more details on the PC streaming surfaces.
