Gamestick preorders at $79

For those of you who are serious about gaming on tablet PC, Gamestick is now taking pre-orders. Starting at $79 for both the gamestick and the controller. What is a Gamestick ? Well, to put it simply, it is an Android tablet that needs a TV as a screen. The tablet itself is screenless and is in the form of a usb stick, hence the name.

GameStick is the world's most portable TV games console. In designing it, we have created a highly affordable, yet powerful device that brings a world of games directly to the big screen. GameStick plugs directly into a TV's HDMI slot and comes with a fully featured Bluetooth Game Pad - ready to go right out of the box. When on the move, the two combine into a single unit, putting a world of big screen gaming directly into the pocket.  
Access a World of Content. We've created what we think is the most simple, intuitive user interface on TV. The GameStick storefront offers access to a range of the most exciting Android games available today. GameStick comes with up to 8GB of storage out of the box with an SD Micro memory expansion slot providing optional additional storage of up to 32GB. (Memory card not included).

Pre-order and Availability ?
While pre-orders are processed on the GameStick website, they’re powered by Amazon, so assuming you already have an Amazon account like everyone else, the checkout process should be rather simple and quick. Aside from the console and the controller, you can also pre-order a dock or a case for $24.99 and $9.99, respectively. 
As far as availability is concerned, it seems like we’re looking at a release date of April 30, which is revealed during the checkout process. PlayJam itself says that “pre-ordered devices will ship immediately after fulfillment of the initial Kickstarter run in April,” so the date at checkout seems to be accurate at this point. 
However, PlayJam has also noted that Kickstarter backers will receive their units first, so those pre-ordering right now will be placed at the end of the line, so it could be several weeks to several months before pre-orderers receive their consoles.
