UG802 goes ARM dual-core for Android mini PC thumbdrive
Currently, our Gadget Master blog is giving away a “GMYLE Black Android 4.0 Mini PC Wifi-N TV Box HD Google IPTV Player 1GB Allwinner A10 UK plug”, aka “Android on a stick media system”…
Well, thanks to our Technology Editor, Steve Bush, for pointing this one out – a post on Liliputing about a newer, dual-core version, the UG802.
The UG802 is a USB thumb drive-sized computer-on-a-stick. It has a Rockchip RK3066 dual core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, HDMI and USB ports, and runs Android 4.0 software. You can pick one up for under $70, plug in a monitor, keyboard, and mouse and use it like a cheap desktop computer.
That’s my angle of interest – an even more powerful Android on a stick system, with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor – but they major on the rooting potential of using a ClockworkMod custom recovery utility (they covered the device’s actual release, earlier in the month…)
