togetho.ru is a an online community that organizes group buys for interesting gadgets, and one reader informed me they already did successful group buying for mobile devices such as Hyundai A7HD, SmartQ Ten3, and Freelander PD10 tablets and ThL V9 smartphone.
They now opened group-buying subscription for CX-01 Android 4.0 mini PC powered by a dual core Cortex A5 processor (Telechips TCC8923) and plan to offer the device for $39.99 including international shipping via China Mail. It’s also possible to upgrade to Hong Kong Post or other shipping methods. You do not actually buy via togetho.ru, but you just need to register an email address, and if there is enough demand, they will be able to send a coupon to your email so that you can use it in Pandawill.
The CX-01 HDMI stick should have performance similar to MK802 based on Antutu benchmarks for devices built around TCC8923, especially for tasks that can make use of multi cores. At 52.99 USD, I found the price to be just right, with the only major drawback being the lack of microSD card slot. So at 39.99 USD I had to register.
The offer is available on http://togetho.ru/cx01.html.
The site is only available in Russian, but in the meantime, you can check the English translation (via google translate), and I’ve been told they would setup a proper English version soon. The English page is now available: http://www.togetho.ru/cx01eng.html.
I have never used that website, so I cannot formally recommend it, but it’s definitely worth a try.
