Quad-core Android SmartTV on a stick

A new USB stick-sized Android SmartTV from Sanko Co., Ltd of Japan features a quad-core 1.2 GHz Freescale i.mx6 processor. I think that’s more power than any other device of its type that I’ve come across.

With it, you can turn any TV with the right connectivity into an Android device or TV.

It supports Google Play, Japanese input (it’s from a Japanese company), plays most popular audio and video files, and comes with all the accessories you need, all for ¥14,800 or $167.00 USD.

It has 8 GB of storage, expandable to 32 GB via the microSD slot. It also features:

  • Android 4.0 ICS
  • Vivante GC2000 GPU
  • microUSB, USB host, microSD connectivity
  • 1 GB memory
  • Supports full HD, 1080p (1920×1080 pixel) video
  • Wireless 802.11 b/g/n
  • 8 GB storage with only 5 GB of free space available for use. (about 2 GB ~ 3 GB used for system)
  • Accessories: 5V/1.5 A AC power supply, HDMI cable and microUSB cable included
  • USB host allows connecting mouse, keyboard, and USB hub
  • Bluetooth
  • Supports Google Play
  • Size – 10 (mm) 38 × depth 102 × height width and weighs just 45g

The comany does not have a North American distributor, so the trick, if you want one, is trying to figure out how to get it. Here are a few screen shots.

  1. XBMC is a great program as a home theater program. I use the G-Box MX2 to run XBMC on my TV. It comes loaded with all of the best add ons. I didn’t have to spend any time programming it. I just plugged it in, hooked it up to my internet and starting watching all of my favorite TV shows, Movies and live sports for free .I can cut my cable!. It also turns your TV into a smart TV with over 800,000 Android Apps. I highly recommend this Android TV Box
