As mentioned above, media playing works a charm, which is makes it a good light solution for dumb TVs, or those with poor app options. Hardware-wise, there isn’t all that much to talk about that we haven’t already covered. Shimmy past the break to find out. The general population might not have sufficient use for it just yet, but with a few tweaks like a small battery so it doesn’t switch off with the TV, Bluetooth, or an audio out, this could really gain a lot of fans. Right here and now, though, this is neat little solution that will really appeal tinkerers and Android fans.

But what is it like in real life? Back in the real world, it’s fair to say that it didn’t take long before we got right into the whole Android-on-a-TV thing, and started to wonder about all the apps that might ksb well suited to this configuration. Plenty is the answer. What could also be nice, for later versions, would mk8002 Bluetooth support for additional HID options.

Hardware-wise, there isn’t all that much to talk about that we haven’t already covered. From around the web. If that 4GB of memory isn’t enough, you can expand it via a microSD slot.

However, you can imagine that this would be quite safe, being thrown around in the bottom of a bag, or in a key- and coin-filled pocket. A dongle-based wireless mouse might be better.


Now, we didn’t go quite as in-depth jsb we would, say, for a phone, but over all it gave modest, to lower-end results. Google adds challenges to Fit just in time for New Year’s resolutions. All of these niche uses give the MK, and its kindlots of potential. Another option could be to explore some VNC or remote control applications, but this seemed more complicated than it was worth.

MK802 Android 4.0 Mini PC hands-on impressions

In the meantime, you can check the video below to see how it handles various tasks. Shimmy past the break to find out. It takes a few moments to boot up, but once it does, you’re into good old Android 4.

It has a 1. Small is en vogue, it seems, and to say we’ve been intrigued about this latest twist on diminutive form factors would be an understatement. In use, the only difference to a tablet flavor of Android is the mouse part. In the main it’s no problem, and you soon get used to it, but apps where touch — especially of the “multi” variety — might not translate so well.

In the best possible way of course. Of course, it’s even better when it brings apps to your TV that otherwise might not be available, like Netflix which does have TV apps, but only certain models. So far, Android has largely though not exclusively kept itself firmly in the palms of our hands.

Classic puzzler ‘Lemmings’ returns as a free-to-play mobile game. The more time you spend with this, discovering suitable apps, the better it gets, and we could see some really unique uses for it going forward. Sometimes there is a bit of a lag on the UI — especially with things like Google Maps, or busy webpages — but in general it keeps up nicely.


Right here and now, though, this is neat little solution that will really appeal tinkerers and Android fans. We did have a few frustrating moments when taking power from some USB ports which caused the MK to keep restarting, but plug it in to one meant for power, and performance is solid. We used a wired mouse in the second USB port which worked straight away with no problems. Bring your Netflix over to a friend’s house without needing your phone, or never worry about using public PCs again.

There must be something in the water in hardware-designer land.

We’re quite taken with it as it is, and are curious to see how the Cotton Candy stacks up against it. All good and well, but what would you do with such a thing? Unsurprisingly, it is light and plasticky feeling. Alphabet is re-working its Wing delivery drones to be less noisy. Of course, anything with a processor and some memory instantly has the Linux wolves circling, and this too would be ideal for your favorite install.
