The MK802 may look like an ordinary USB stick, but it’s a fully-functional computer. Of course, you need to attach it to a display, and connect some sort of keyboard/mouse combo, but the MK802 could very well be the smallest PC around.
The MK802 is from an unspecified manufacturer, that packs a 1.5G Hz ARM CPU and 512 MB of RAM. Chinese retailers are now selling the AllWinner A10 Android 4.0 Mini PC a.k.a. MK802, a small computer that is housed in a 3.5-inch plastic case and is slightly larger than a USB thumb drive.
Other notable features include a full-sized USB port with host support for input devices, a conventional micro-USB port, a microSD slot, and an internal 802.11 b/g WiFi antenna. Judging from the image of the device, we’re seeing that the HDMI port is female, which could mean that users will still have to use an HDMI cable to use that feature. The hole next to the USB port appears to be for the power supply, which could also mean that the device is not powered via USB.
If you’re the adventurous type, and have approximatively 58 Euro (74$) to spend on anonymous Chinese devices (we’ve all done it at some point), then the MK802 may be right down your alley. If you do decide to take the leap, be sure to share your experiences with the rest of us in the comments.
