Company description

Console OS is Android™ remastered for the desktop.

We've taken Android apart and rebuilt it to be a mainstream desktop operating system. With support for dual-booting alongside Windows™, people with PCs, PC Tablets, and 2-in-1's can now enjoy Android at performance levels never before reached by the platform.

Console OS is designed to run stand-alone, meaning it doesn't have the performance limitations of solutions that run inside of Windows. It does however install from within Windows, making it easy to set up and use.

For the first time, you don't have to buy a Windows tablet, and an Android tablet, to enjoy the two universes of apps without compromise. That's Console OS.

Thousands of people have already signed on to the Console OS vision, with a very successful Kickstarter campaign already closed. Console OS is expected to go into beta late this year.

In the long-term, we plan to keep pushing the limits of Android out, to speed Android's rise as the most popular OS worldwide, on all your devices.

Console OS is the main focus of Mobile Media Ventures, Inc, headquartered in California. We're also building iConsole™, a new kind of Android console.

(While we're currently headquartered in Santa Clara, we are open to other final locations - including both Southern California and Nevada - we expect those discussions to continue over the next 60-90 days as we talk to relevant parties).

Business model

Console OS is an operating system, and has numerous revenue points. From OEM integration collaboration to application integration, advertising, and app store sales - Console OS is strategically positioned to combine the strong points of the Android™ operating system, with providing tools that the industry needs to continue to serve the PC and PC Tablet marketplace with the best software solutions possible.

Competitive advantage

Unlike emulation, Console OS runs natively. Able to toggle with Windows in as little as ten seconds, Console OS avoids the performance issues commonplace with competing solutions for running Android on your PC. Unlike competitors, Console OS is able to deliver full 3D graphics with technology that outperforms today's Android tablets and phones. Our direct competitors today, struggle to handle even the most basic of 3D games.

Some of our indirect competitors are in the operating system space as well, but we are leveraging the most popular platform in the world today - Android. By scaling Android up to the PC, Console OS is uniquely positioned to combine the best hardware, and the best OS experience out there - retooling the user experience to work with gusto on both touch, and non-touch (keyboard and mouse only) PC systems.
