Android 4 micro-PC goes on sale for $74

Online retailer AliExpress has started selling the Model MK802 PC on a stick for $74. An alternative to the Raspberry Pi, the mini-computer looks like a USB dongle, but is in fact a fully-fledged mobile PC. It incorporates a single-core 1.5GHz Allwinner A10 ARM Cortex-A8 processor matched with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage.

Unlike the Raspberry Pi, which can connect directly to an HDMI port on an HD TV, the MK802 has an HDMI connector, requiring an HDMI cable to be attached before it will display over a screen. It can also support 1080p HD video playback in a range of formats making it well suited for use as a home theatre PC. It also supports HTML5 and Flash playback, along with numerous audio formats too.

Additional ports include a full-size USB port and a micro-USB port. The diminutive device also packs in 802.11b/g Wi-Fi capabilities. It also weighs in at just 7 ounces. In theory, the MK802 could also support a Linux OS as well offering dual-boot capabilities if you have the know-how. [via Liliputing]
