The Mele A1000 set-top-box made headlines earlier this year when hackers figured out that you could install a range of Linux-based operating systems on what was originally designed as an Android-powered media player.
Since then we’ve seen dozens of similar devices such as the MK802, UG802, Diamond Multimedia AMP1000, and many more. But if you like the Mele A1000 form factor and just with the device had a little more storage or additional memory… now it does.
The manufacturer has updated the product line with the new Mele A1000G and Mele A2000G. Both devices feature the same Allwinner A10 ARM Cortex-A8 processor as their predecessors but instead of 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage the new models feature 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage.
You also get USB, Ethernet, VGA, HDM, and RCA jacks, built-in 802.11b/g WiFi, and a wireless remote control.
For the most part the 1000 series and 2000 series devices feature the same specs. Only the box design is different.
