Miniand MK802 Android TV – Review

The other day I was lurking YouTube and I found this type of Android Devices, they weren’t phones or tablets, but they were TV Media Players, this is not really a review of this device, but is more like a showcase. How does it work? the MK802 is built like any phone or tablet, and it runs on Android. it uses an HDMI cable to connect to your TV and turn it into an Android based Entertainment system: the MK802 Specs are as follows:

 

  • 1.0GHz Cortex-A8 + 500Hz GPU
  • 1GB DDR2 Ram
  • 4GB Internal Storage (also available  8GB)
  • Micro SD Card Reader
  • 1 Standard USB Port
  • 1 mini USB port
  • mini HDMI out port
  • WiFi + Bluetooth
it runs on Andorid 4.0.4 (Icecream Sandwich), and has 1080p output, and it plays full HD content, and it also gives access to the normal android interface (using a launcher) and this way you can access the market and get all kinds of apps on it.

Why would you need it?

 

this is perfect for people who want to play HD content from a Hard drive or a flash memory on their TV, the cheap price of the player and the versatility of Android as a system make a really strong competitor to other media players like WD TV Live or Boxee, I would also like to mention the Size of the MK802 is way much smaller than any other Media player, and the Micro SD card really keep it compact (up 32GB Micro SD). I have a Samsung Smart TV and I enjoy plugging in a small hard drive and watching  shows, and with the MK802 I can do that on any other TV.

 

Whats in the box?
