CX-O1 Mini PC now available with Android 4.0 for $48


Remember that charming little device that looked like a USB stick and could bring the Android experience to any HDMI-enabled TV and monitor? Welp, it has a little competition and is now up for sale at a very attractive price point at $48. The CX-01 Mini PC will give you Android 4.0 in the size of a USB stick.

It would be great for playing games, getting work done, or just watching some videos and browsing the web. While the specs are nothing to marvel at – it has WiFi N, a full-sized USB port, a 1GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage – its price point would be the deciding factor for many.

At $48 this device would be a nice little accessory to have if you want to take the Android experience onto the big screen without huge set-top boxes or the need to get a TV with it built-in. It would be absolutely lavish with Bluetooth support and if ti were Google TV-equipped, but alas it falls short of those expectations.

The MK802 offers a better set of hardware but you still aren’t getting Bluetooth with either experience. Regardless, our expectations were low enough that we’re still excited for the CX-O1’s arrival and it’ll be interesting to see if the development community does anything with it. Head to the source link if you want to buy it. [Pandawill via Liliputing]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Would this work on the Atrix laptop dock…if you didn’t have an Atrix that is?

    1. Probably not, because the USB Hosting capabilities are in the Atrix itself, and when you unplug the Atrix, you have no USB Host hub on the lapdock.

  2. That thing has more power and features for 48 bucks then the pc’s we paid hudreds and thousands for in the 70s and 80s, technology marches on so quickly!

    1. Forget the 70’s and 80’s. This thing has more power than PC’s from the 90’s, possibly even the early 2000’s!

      I was going to order a Raspberry Pi but there are just too many nice, cheap Android alternatives with a bit more power behind them (though not necessarily this one).

  3. With XBMC about to hit Android, this could be the perfect HTPC with external storage!

  4. Not quite as good specs. as the Cotton-Candy USB stick, with the mentioned Bluetooth (but still not available in the USA). Starting to think this company is DOA

  5. Well it has a full size USB 2.0 OTG port on the back, it might even support bluetooth dongles, if not i’m pretty sure at XDA will make it work.
