There’s a plethora of Android HDMI TV dongles, but all of them only provide Wi-Fi connectivity, and if you need better network performance you need to add Ethernet via an USB to Ethernet dongle. There’s now another solution, that may not be very new, with GOsingGO GSG-TB06 a mini PC based on AllWinner A10 that includes an Ethernet Port.
Here are the specifications of the device:
- SoC – Allwinners A10 @ 1.0GHz
- System Memory – 1GB RAM
- Storage -4 to 32 GB flash + micro SD card slot
- Video output – HDMI & AV
- USB – 1x USB 2.0, 1x micro USB for power
- Connectivity – Ethernet (RJ45) + Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n (AR6103)
- Dimensions – 105L x 37W x 15.6Hmm
The device comes with a USB power adapter, an RCA (AV) cable, and a user’s manual. The manufacturer says it’s running Android 4.1. The specs are not that great, but this is the only TV stick I’ve ever seen with Ethernet, and it should be able to run Linux too.
The only problem is that I could only find it on the manufacturer website, and it does not appear to be available for sale anywhere (yet).
Thanks to Anthony for the tips.
