Thanks for the review - very interesting area.
A shame that the CPU is so weak - a bit like Raspberry Pi - can run XBMC mediacenter (RaspMC)
but is week in CPU/Memory performance - so that overall handling is very very slow, but can run mediafiles with ease....
to be fair to the pi, openelc 3.0.1(xbmc12.1) runs at over 40fps this thing cant even do 10fps.
To be fair, RaspMC is a native XBMC implementation. The XBMC used in the review was running XBMC over Android.
The CPU definitely is under-powered for sure, but comparing performance of XBMC on Android to native XBMC isn't a fair comparison.
I'm sure the SIM card slot works, but you'd need to install a data card in the mini-PCI Express slot in the bottom of the unit for to actually do anything.
Really sad to see the reviewer missing out something as obvious as this.
the really sad part for me was that I didn't have a mini-PCI data card to try...
I have some mini-PCI data cards laying around (from Fujitsu Futro S900 Thin Clients)
You can have them if you want...just PM me and I will send them...
They are not huge in GB...I think they are 1 or 2 GB.....
sooo where every other Android minipc use Fuzhou Rokchip 3066 (wich is one of the top list SoC) this one use a Allwinner A10 (i used a A13 tab wich is the low power without HDMI wich was quite sluggish(not bad but still)) basically the advantage of this one is the HDD and the mini pciEX
but its nearly 80$ more than a SaintSmart HDMI stick with RK3066
