Yet again, sellers are trying to get rid off their old stock, and today Rikomagic MK02 IIIS HDMI TV Stick powered by Rockchip RK3066 sells for
$14.40 on Aliexpress for the next four hours, but if you miss it, you can also buy from another seller for $17.99. Both prices include worldwide shipping, and the sellers have good feedback.
MK802 IIIS specifications:
- SoC – Rockchip RK3066 dual core Cortex A9 @ 1.6Ghz + Mali-400MP4 GPU
- System Memory – 1GB RAM
- Storage – 8 GB NAND flash + micro SD slot (up to 32GB)
- Connectivity – Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n + Bluetooth 3.0
- Video Output – HDMI (male)
- USB – 1x USB Host 2.0, 2x micro USB for power and OTG port
The package includes the mini PC, a USB cable for power, an OTG adapter, a short male to female HDMI cable, and user’s manual. It’s said to run running Android 4.1.1, but it could actually be Android 4.2, and Rikomagic released firmware on November 2013 with Android 4.2. Two versions of MK802IIIS are listed on Rikomagic firmware page, so I’m not sure which one it is. This dongle also supports PicUntu I/O if you want to run a Linux desktop distribution.
