CX-01 Mini Android PC Android TV Box – Cheap(er) Droid

We mentioned the MK-802 Thumbstick (which BTW is now available in 1GB RAM) in May, now there’s an even cheaper option on the market (albeit for a slightly lower spec). The CX-01 Mini Android PC TV Box from PandaWill runs Android 4.0 and comes with 512MB Ram, 4GB of storage, a Cotex A5 1GHz processor, HDMI out, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, a USB port and a Micro USB port. The unit is only 85 x 27 x 15 mm (3.4″ X 1.1″ X 0.6″) in size and weighs in at 25 g (0.9 ounce).

The PandaWill website lists the following supported file types:  AVI, RMVB, MKV& FLV Video Format, Support 1080P HD Player, MP3, WMA, WAV, APE, AAC, FLAC, OGG, TXT, PDF, HTML, RTF, and FB2.  HDMI video output is 1920 x 1080P (60Hz).

And the price is only $47.99 shipped.

Is that an Android in your pocket or are you just happy to see me? :)

    Intrigued. But showing my ignorance here, what does it do? Plug it into a TV and the TV becomes a large Android tablet? Could I plug it into my laptop and have Android on the side? Can anyone assit?

    Similar question to Richard:
    Does anyone know if these “Android on a stick” devices will run Hulu as a computer instead of a device?
    There are lots of shows on Hulu that will only play on a computer instead of a device, such as a Roku….

    @Richard , The primary purpose of these sticks is to be able to run Android and display it on your television. As such you can then watch movies, play games, surf the web and effectively turn your “standard” TV into a “smart” TV or on any display device that has an HDMI in.

    @Tech , it would appear as a device like an Android phone or tablet, so if Hulu shows won’t work on these, it most likely won’t work on a stick either.
