Nvidia Tegra powered units run Android 4.2 Ice Cream Sandwich OS
Monitor and television manufacturer AOC has launched a new line of touchscreen all-in-one computers. The machines, branded Mysmart, are aimed at consumers looking for space- and power-saving solutions on a budget. Available in 22- and 24-inch configurations, the desktop solutions are powered by Android 4.2 (Ice Cream Sandwich) with ADS in-plane switching (IPS) display panels. Each display runs at a 1920x1080 resolution, with a 50M:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
Both of the black- and silver-cased machines carry the same specifications, apart from the size of the screens. The same quad-core 1.6GHz CPU/GPU chip used in the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity and the Ouya -- the Nvidia Tegra 3 T33 -- powers the Mysmart all-in-one PCs. Each unit contains 2GB of LPDDR3 memory, as well as 8GB of eMMC storage. Additional storage can be accessed through a built in SDHC card slot, or one of the four USB 2.0 ports.
The Mysmart models also contain built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and VGA and HMDI outputs. A front-facing 1.0 MP 720p camera with mic is also included within the units. External speakers won't be mandatory, as there are two internal two-watt speakers inside the all-in-one machines. The Mysmart computers also have the ability to tilt from 15 to 57 degrees for those wishing to operate outside of the standard static desktop positioning.
AOC's prices the all-in-one Android machines at an MSRP of $300 and $400 for the 22 inch (A2272PW4T) and 24 inch (A2472PW4T) versions respectively.
