Kimdecent has launched a $72 PC-on-a-stick that ships pre-loaded with Android Jellybean.
The Droid Stick T10 – powered by a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor – features 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and ARM Mali 400 graphics.
Additional specs include a full-sized USB 2.0 port, 2 mini USB ports, integrated WiFi, a micro SD card slot and an HDMI port.
As Liliputing’s Brad Linder points out, the abundance of ports allows users to easily plug in a display, keyboard, mouse, remote control dongle and other peripherals to run Android apps on a TV or monitor. As expected, the Droid Stick T10 is also loaded with Google’s Play Store and is fully capable of running Adobe Flash Player 11.
Unfortunately, Rockchip doesn’t officially provide support for Linux, although unofficial Ubuntu ports and other Linux-flavors do exist. So if Linux is a priority for you, the popular MK802 may be a better bet.
However, those who prefer Android as their choice of OS may also want to check out the $69 UG802 mini PC or the $82 Z2C.
The UG802 is powered by a Rockchip RK3066 ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor paired with 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB integrated storage, a microSD card slot and an integrated HDMI connector, while the Z2C is equipped with the same processor, 1GB of memory, 8GB of storage and a microSD card slot.
