A reader (Thanks Javier!) tipped me about the Zero Devices Z900, an upcoming Android 4.0 mini PC, by one of the companies providing the MK802 / Z802 mini PC.
- ARM Processor @ 1Ghz with Mali-400 GPU (
AllWinner A10 ?,Wrong guess. It’s Telechips TCC8925)
- 512 MB RAM
- 4 GB Flash and microSD slot
- HDMI video output
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
- 1x USB 2.0 port and 1x mini USB port (power)
- OS – Android 4.0
- Dimensions – 89 x 32 x 18 mm
- Weight – 38 grams
Availability and pricing are not available yet, but we can expect it to be in the same price range of his little brother (MK802 / Z802) that is around 70 to 80 USD including shipping. Since it has an HDMI male connector, it can be more convenient than the MK802 as you don’t have to carry the cables around. If the hardware is effectively based on AllWinner A10, you’ll also be able to running Ubuntu or another Linux distribution and eventually convert it to an XBMC media player.
