A tiny PC by a Chinese firm looks like a USB flash drive


A Chinese firm has developed a PC on a flash drive that will run on Android 4.0 and is available at $74. This PC on a flash drive is dubbed as MK802.

This tiny computer weighs only 7 ounces and has the dimensions of 3.5 inches x 1.4 inches x 0.5 inches and comes with a single-core Allwinner A10 CPU (based on an ARM Cortex A8) running at 1.5GHz, 512MB RAM, and 4GB of storage. Although it has Android operating system but Liliputing has noted that certain other operating systems can also be installed such as Ubuntu.

[hana-code-insert name=’StumbleUpon’ /][hana-code-insert name=’Reddit’ /]MK802 has ports rather than connectors so that the cables are required to connect to the TV rather than plugging it directly. There is no remote control but mouse and keyboard can be connected through a USB Host. It has a MicroUSB port, a microSD card slot to add extra storage, and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi to connect to your home network. It supports full HD 1080P/2160P.

This tiny computer has beaten the FXI’s Cotton Candy mini PC costing $200.
