Chinese device maker iMito’s latest Android TV stick is a tiny box with a quad-core processor that lets you run Android apps on your TV. The iMito QX1 has a Rockchip RK3188 ARM Cortex-A9 processor, which is one of the zippiest chips in its class, and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software.
The TV stick also features an external antenna which should help boost WiFi performance — a problem spot on many other Android TV sticks.
The iMito stick has 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, plus a microSD card slot. It supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 and features a mini HDMI plug which you can use to connect the device to your TV.
On one end of the QX1 you’ll find a full-sized USB port which you can use to hook up a mouse, keyboard, game controller, or remote control. There’s also an antenna port which you can use to plug in the external antenna. You may not need it, but it’s a nice option to have if the built-in antenna isn’t strong enough.
Geekbuying is taking pre-orders for the iMito QX1 for $90.
