Android Mini PC 1

I got my Android mini PC a maybe a couple of months ago. The main idea behind getting it was making it an Apple TV replacement as I have 3 Apple TVs and wanted to try out a new platform as a media center/entertainment device.

With the Google TV being useless outside the US. I looked for a replacement android device that would do the job. I first was hinting about using my LG G2X Android phone that has a HDMI out but I came across the nifty little device, The Android Mini PC.

The device is much smaller than any smartphone. Packs a 1GHz cortex A8 processor, 1GB of RAM, built-in WiFi, HDMI out, Micro SD card slot, full size USB 2.0 slot and a USB OTG slot with an included adapter.

The device is capable of outputting full 1080p video and on the spec sheet it says its even able to output 2160p video. The USB slot is excellent. I managed to hook up a mouse and a keyboard. And then I was able to connect my Azio wireless keyboard that also haas a thumb-stick and makes controlling the Android interface much easier.

It is great for watching YouTube videos or even those not so officially downloaded movies and tv shows. The UI is very easy to navigate as its a standard Android ICS 4.0.
