There's a new Joey 4 and a new wireless access point coming soon. I wonder when ? ;)

EDIT:
Well guys, just got confirmation on the new receiver. There are 3 new ones coming out!
- Hopper 4
- Joey 4
- Wifi Joey 4

The Hopper 4 is going to have an Android based system. I'll update more details when I have them!

Standard answer: Soon.

Definition of "soon": Sometime between now and never.

DISH considers Joeys to be receivers (no tuners, relying on content from a Hopper).

FCC applications aren't a particularly telling indicator of what is "coming soon". DIRECTV's replacement for their C71 "Osprey" streaming device was filed two years ago and it still isn't out. Dave Zatz posted his notes about the Hopper Plus, Joey 4 and wireless Joey 4 just this past June.

I think "coming soon" is probably premature.

I would analyze dish FW streams - they usually testing new devices and new FW could reveal it. Remember when info about "Zapper" FW posted ? Then Wally came out

Oh I'm not talking about the FCC. I saw the new additions on my inventory list today.

I always liked when Charlie chats were on DISH network.

Retailer chats were more informative though. Should have made retailer chats available to everyone and not just retailers.

I miss the Charlie Chats as well although it did appear that they jumped the shark at the end.

Interesting, how tight the Android on H4 would be ? I would expect it's totally restricted to dish site.

Nonsense! That would substantially defeat the purpose of using Android.

Isn't Linux under hood of H3 ?
I would be surprised if *nix hasn't been the underlying platform starting with the 501.

Could be... I know the Hoppers have been using the Broadcom 742n "System on a Chip" series chips with embedded MoCa, but I don't know what OS they're based on.
