Meet the MK903V, an alternative to TV boxes that rocks incredible power in such a small size that it could fit right into your pocket.
The MK903V TV stick is a small device that looks like a USB drive and connects to any HDTV via the HDMI port. It features only an HDMI port on one side, and an antenna on the other, and enables any particular TV to host Android apps in it. This on its own is not that special, except for the fact that it uses a Rockchip ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core processor (that is, a hell of a lot of power) for a device that is surprisingly light.
This TV stick requires only to be plugged to the TV, and to a power source at the same time. In turn, it will allow users to run any number of Android apps on their TV for the relatively low price of $122 USD, with a remote control included. The MK903V TV has 2GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage, one microSD card slot, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI 2.0, and USB and micro USB ports running Android 4.4 KitKat software. Basically, the MK903V TV runs on hardware comparable to that of Google’s Nexus 5. This allows it to even support 4K video output.
Google has gone on record speaking of their own ideas to develop an eventual Android TV, but until anything comes from that, this is a great device to get any TV to run apps and function as a Smart TV for only a fraction of the price.
