Ouya has moved out the design phase and into development, the company has announced.

“We’re still going full-steam ahead. We’ve been refining OUYA’s hardware design (cosmetics, mechanicals, electricals, thermals etc.). We’ve spent most of this time in the design phase, as getting it right up front saves us a lot of redesign and iteration later. We’ve had some of the best engineers and designers take a look at every design element and fine tune it. Our CAD models and SLAs (plastic prototypes that provide us with a physical look and feel of the product) are finished, and we moved out of the design phase and into development a couple of weeks ago,” said Ouya CEO Julie Uhrman.

The company’s now in the Engineering Verification Testing phase and development kits are on track to be ready by December. She also announced that the console will run the latest version of Android, Jelly Bean. “We’re making the jump from the old version, Ice Cream Sandwich, to ensure that we’re running on the most up-to-date software available.”

The console’s Kickstarter managed to secure $8.6 million in funding. It is scheduled to be ready for release by March 2013.
