UG802 Android PC-on-a-stick has a $69 price tag

Posted by Shane McGlaun

Judging by the sheer number of products that launch each week, the market for Android-powered mini computers is booming - despite the less than stellar economic climate.

The latest? An Android PC-on-a-stick dubbed the UG802, which is somewhat similar in design to the $74 MK802.

As you may recall, the MK802 features a 1.5 GHz Allwiner A10 processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. The $74 PC ships with Google Android 4.0, but allows the installation of various Linux flavors like Ubuntu or Debian. 

Now the UG802 originally went up for sale last month for $89, but was recently lowered by a cool $20, allowing you to snap one up for a sweet $69.

Specs? The UG802 is powered by a Rockchip RK3066 ARM Cortex-A9 dual core processor paired with 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB integrated storage,  a microSD card slot for expansion an integrated HDMI connector.

It is probably also worth noting that while the MK802 is equipped with a single-core processor, the UG802 features a dual-core chip for higher speeds and optimized performance.

Personally, I'm seriously considering this PC-on-a-stick - especially since my old Logitech Revue just recently stopped working. However, I'm also thinking about the MK802, as that device already has a number of Linux flavors available for it - including Fedora and Ubuntu.
