$88.50 Jesurun NX003II Quad Core mini PC Comes with a Webcam and an External Wi-Fi Antenna

Do you remember MK812, a dual core mini PC with a built-in camera, and an external high-gain Wi-Fi antenna? Well, I’ve just noticed a similar device called Jesurun NX003II on DealExtreme, but instead of the dual core processor (RK3066) and 1GB RAM, it comes with Rockchip RK3188 quad core Cortex A9 processor, 2GB RAM, and yes, the camera and external antenna are still there.

Jesurun_NX003II
Jesurun NX003II Specifications:

  • SoC –  Rockchip RK3188 Quad core Cortex A9 @ 1.6Ghz with Mali-400 MP4 GPU
  • System Memory –  2GB DDRIII
  • Storage – 8GB NAND Flash + microSD card (up to 32GB)
  • Connectivity:
    • Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g/n with external Antenna
    • Bluetooth v2.1
  • Video Output – HDMI 1.4 (1080p, 3D support)
  • Video Codecs – MPEG1/2/4, H.264, VC-1, Divx, Xvid, RM8/9/10, VP6
  • Audio Codecs – MP3, WM, WMA, WAV, OGG, AAC, MPEG Audio, PCM LPCM, M4A, AC3, DTS
  • Camera – Built-in 2.0MP camera
  • USB – USB OTG + USB 2.0 host
  • Dimensions – 10.0 cm x 4.0 cm x 1.1 cm
  • Weight – 43 g

The device is sold with a power adapter, an HDMI cable (32cm), an English user manual, a USB cable (80cm), and an Antenna (40cm).

Apart from the external Wi-Fi antenna it’s very similar to Kimdecent B12, which features the same board as Measy U2C. This means, although not certain, it is likely they used the same components, including the camera. So even though Linux will certainly run on the device on PicUntu is ported to RK3188, the camera may not work in Linux, as previous work has been unsuccessful to date.

Anyway, for those wanting to use Skype or G+ Hangout on their TV without having to worry if their USB webcam will be compatible, it could be a nice little device. The external Wi-Fi antenna may or may not improve Wi-Fi performance depending on your setup. For $88.50, it’s about the same price as many other RK3188 mini PCs without camera and external antennas.

    I don’t quite get it … am I supposed to hold the device in my hand, attached to the HDMI cable with the Wi-Fi antenna dangling about?

    In my TV I can just plug this type of device on he side of the TV: See pic http://www.cnx-software.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Measy_U2C_Connection_to_TV.jpg, and review for the measy: http://www.cnx-software.com/2013/02/07/review-of-measy-u2c-rockchip-rk3066-mini-pc-with-built-in-camera/

    But this may not work for everybody. There’s also an accessories where you can connect the mini PC and rotate it properly. The one I know is Measy U2C-D: http://www.geekbuying.com/item/Measy-U2C–Best-Partner–USB-HDMI-DC-SD-Port-All-in-one-Dock–Stand-314556.html

    Otherwise you’d have to find way to attach the device in some other ways (Velcro, Tape). Cheap anti-slip mats
    http://dx.com/c/car-accessories-799/interior-accessories-761/anti-slip-mats-762 may also be used but they are usually designed for phone, so maybe a bit too big.

    It’s in my wishlist now! However I don’t really need this external Wi-Fi antenna, just an additional micro USB port is OK for me.

    The antenna on this model is a must! The earlier versions had poor WiFi reach, especially if the bluetooth was in use. I believe the aluminum case and the internal antenna (a wire) was a bad idea seeing the you could take off the case and it worked flawlessly.

    The Measy U2C-D (http://www.geekbuying.com/picturegallery/index/314556/?index=0#) not only makes a great stand, but gives you a total of three USB ports and a SD slot!

    Does this device or any of these Dongles support Pass Through?

    @digdoug
    Not sure about this one, but I haven’t seen any Rockchip devices with HDMI pass-through. AMLogic AML8726-MX devices all support it. I did not test it myself, but HDMI pass-through is an option in Android Settings.

    Gosh, Measy U2C-D makes a great hacking dock! Go green with power switch too. Impulsive buy, definitely.
