The first generation of mini PC with Android unfortunately did not find enough success to see the day. So far all projects are not abandoned, the proof is this RK3066.
The RK3066 follows the MK802 and presents itself as a mini PC running Android and packed in a whole box of the size of a portable hard drive, mainly designed to convert a TV into a Smart TV.
The hardware configuration is similar to that of a smartphone: A dual-core Cortex A9 clocked at 1.6 GHz, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of flash storage and a micro SD port to expand the capacity up to 32 GB , WiFi b/g/n and DLNA support, Bluetooth chip, a Micro USB port, a standard USB port , HDMI, 3.5mm jack output, all operating under Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Apart from connectivity, everything is therefore akin to a smartphone or a tablet, and it is able to connect to a monitor and peripherals to take advantage of the device. In this subject, Bluetooth and the audio jack are new compared to the previous version, and provide a simple combination of devices such as speakers, but also a keyboard and a mouse.
Offered at $55, the platform is expected to take advantage of Android applications on a TV or monitor. Remains that all applications should not be easier to manipulate, the mouse should replace the touch interfaces. Remains whether the public will be at the rendezvous.
