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.
