Android Mini PC vs Android on a Stick
When we compare this new Android Mini PC model A10 (also called A10 Media PC) against the “Android on a Sitck” alternatives, there are obvious reasons why the former is a better option: For a start, this Android Mini PC is enclosed in a bigger, stand alone, case which includes in / out slots and connector just as a normal desktop computer.
The A10 Android mini PC comes with an SD/MMC card slot, two USB PORTS, an RJ45 connector for ethernet LAN access, optical, HDMI and even analog AV outputs. It also includes a DC power connector, as it is powered by an external source, which is included in the bundle. As a nice detail, it also includes a remote control so you can comfortably use it as a media center in your living room.
It is clear enough by now that the Android Mini PC compares quite favorably against the meager and smaller “Android on a Stick” products. On the availability side, we just spotted it on sale in the U.K. at about 70 pounds.
