Android on a stick anyone? The FXI Cotton Candy garnered a lot of attention and  is slowly starting to filter its way into the wild, but the Chinese market has just released a similar Android based thumb stick.  Not quite as highly specced and slightly larger, the MK802 runs a 1.5GHz A10 CPU,  512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage expandable via microSD or USB and runs Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich). The MK802 sports an HDMI port compared with the Cotton Candy’s HDMI plug, so you’ll also need a cable to connect this to your HDMI capable device.

And the “best” thing is that the MK802 is only $74 shipping including freight from Aliexpress in China. The bad news, it’s already on backorder expecting to be shipping again mid June.

I’ll probably wait for the first few reviews before I drop the hammer on this one as sometimes cheap Chinese products means well, cheap product but it certainly looks promising 🙂
