Mad Catz is touting Project M.O.J.O. as being the most powerful Android-powered gaming console on the market. The console will use the NVIDIA Tegra 4 system-on-a-chip.
“At next week?s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles we will unveil the keystone product in our GameSmart initiative, Project M.O.J.O., an Android micro console configured to harness the maximum gaming horsepower from an Android device,” stated Mad Catz CEO Darren Richardson. “The Project M.O.J.O.
