This PC-on-a-stick runs Aliyun OS

Posted by Trent Nouveau

We've covered a number of Android-powered PCs-on-sticks here at TG Daily in recent months. However, this is the first time we're talking about a PC-on-a-stick powered by Aliyun OS instead of Google's popular mobile operating system.

Dubbed the TianXianPei K2, the device is slated to hit streets in China by the end of August.

As Liliputing's Brad Linder notes, while Aliyun is technically based on Android, the (majorly forked) operating system coded by Alibaba isn't compatible with Google's version of the OS.

As such, it won't run apps designed for the vast majority of Android phones or tablets.

Key TianXianPei K2 specs include a 1.6 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, up to 8GB of storage, a microSD card slot, WiFi, Bluetooth and Miracast wireless display support.

Pricing has yet to be announced.

The TianXianPei K2 is clearly slated for the Chinese market, although it will certainly be interesting to see if a limited number of mobile devices powered by Aliyun ultimately hit US and European shores in the near future.
