xbmc Android App
" Today we announce XBMC for Android. Not a remote, not a thin client; the real deal. No root or jailbreak required. XBMC can be launched as an application on your set-top-box, tablet, phone, or wherever else Android may be found. "

This makes platforms like the ouya very exciting to me. Hopefully ouya doesn't backpeddal like boxee did with the comments about being hacker friendly.

Blech - does not work on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tab (same chipset). Still, it's early days, so still hoping.

so any suggestion on a set-up box running Android?

The sad thing is that we (Boxee Box owners) already have a device that is supposedly capable of running XMBC, and here we are looking for an Android alternative just to be able to run XBMC.
I would really like that D-Link would open Boxee Box so we could install XBMC on it (and then it would become XMBC Box).
After having a bunch of media players since 2008 (TVix 6500A, Xtreamer MK1, TViX N1, WDTV Live, BoxeeBox), I have decided that my next media player will definitively be running XBMC. While I like the idea of a dedicated device that does not require a lot of configurations, all of the players I have in this list somehow failed my expectations as a fully capable media player.
Well, in the end I would really like to run XMBC on my BoxeeBox, but I am not counting on it, and then as many other people I will start following the discussion of being able to run XMBC on Android.
BTW, going back to the topic: I found a US$ 72 Android 4.0 mini-PC here. If only I could confirm it will run XBMC, I would purchase it now!

Totally agree with dsouza's comment above, but also don't believe it will happen any time soon.
xbmc4android was developed on the Pivious XIOS DS so we can be sure it runs on this device.
Quick search shows it can be obtained for around US$115

I have this .apk installed and running on a Galaxy Nexus.
It's not perfect obviously...added Navi-X, video playback is pretty choppy due to it rendering in software.
