A10 Media PC Android TV box hits the UK

The A10 Media PC is small computer with an Allwinner A10 processor designed to turn any TV into a PC. It ships with Google Android 4.0 software, but thanks to the A10 chip, it should also support Ubuntu and other Linux operating systems.

Cloudsto Electronics is selling the A10 Media PC in the UK for £69.99, or about $109 US.

A10 Media PC

Here’s what you get for that price:

  • Allwinner A10 ARM Cortex-A8 single core processor
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 8GB of storage
  • SD card slot
  • 2 USB ports
  • HDMI and RCA output
  • Ethernet
  • Headset jack
  • Optical input
  • WiFi
  • Remote control

The device supports USB OTG and host connections, so you can connect a TV with the HDMI port, and hook up a keyboard, mouse, external hard drive, or other peripherals with the USB ports.

You can also stream media from a shared drive on your home network. The A10 Media PC supports 1080p HD video playback.

The computer measures 4.7″ x 3.5″ x 1.2″. That makes it significantly larger than the MK802 or some other Mini PCs on the market. But it’s still pretty small — and more importantly, it has more ports than most of the other devices in this category I’ve seen recently.

    This looks more attractive to me than the memory stick sized models. I wonder how well XBMC for Android will run on it

    “RCA output”

    Well that is interesting. Makes it compatible with many more TVs.

      RCA is only for audio, as far as I can tell

        You raise an interesting point. There is a single yellow port marked AV, for audio visual. But, RCA usually consists of three jacks of yellow, red and white. However, there is a cable included with the device that appears to have a single black plug on one end and yellow, red and white on the other.

    Looks nice! But isn’t the Mele A2000 a bit better value and maybe more features (e.g. SATA port)?

  • Stanislav Sinyagin

    I started experimenting with Linux images on this device, looks quite promising. More details here:

    Looks nice. Where can I read more up on this?

  • Todd Kleinert

    To be fair, this has more ports, analog output (for older tv’s) as well as a remote control.. much more features than the stick pc’s
