User Interface Walkthrough
Once you have the Kata Box hooked up to your TV, in our case using an HDMI cable, you are greeted with this screen.
You navigate using the directional pad in the remote control provided as well as the option to attach a mouse or keyboard. Kata Box comes in preloaded with TV, Office, Games, Wipeout, KataCloud, Google Play, YouTube, and Spotify.
When you click on the TV Icon, you are greeted with a series of applications that provide you with on demand videos from various providers like Discovery Channel, Fox Now and History Channel. The Office Icon will give you a series of basic applications for office functions such as calendar, calculator and an email client. For the Games Icon, there were already a few familiar Google Play games installed.
The Wipeout functions similar to Clean Master where you can manage running applications. KataCloud is Kata’s cloud storage service and you get 10GB free upon signing up. Our box also came in with TuneIn which is an online radio.
The Chinese language was placed in as default on the onscreen keyboard but it can easily be changed to English by hitting the language button on the lower left corner.
So, that’s the Interface so far. There is definitely a lot of features that we’re looking forward to playing around with and we’ll be giving you guys the full review. So, stay tuned for that.
