A few weeks ago we showed you the Mini MK802 Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich computer – basically a dongle that can be hooked up to a display and transformed into an Android computer. But its creator has other similar tricks up its sleeves.
The Mini RC RC3066 is a newer Android computer that works pretty much like the MK802, and the product has been spotted at CES 2013.
The device packs quite a punch under the hood: 1.6GHz dual-core Cortex A9 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, microSD support, Wi-Fi b/g/n, DLNA, Bluetooth , micro USB, full-size USB, female HDMI port, 3.5mm headset jack and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Comparatively, the MK802 features a 1.5GHz Cortex-A8 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, microSD support, Wi-Fi b/g/n, DLNA, micro USB, full-size USB, HDMI and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
In case you’re shopping for such devices that help you port your Android experience on to a new screen, the new Mini PC RK3066 seems to be the better choice. The device retails for $55, not including a $5 shipping fee, while its predecessor costs $45. But even thoughEngadget did share pricing details for the device, we’re still unsure from where one would order one, so you’ll just have to hang on to your cash for a while longer.
Will you buy an Android computer this year?
