Seems like a good price, good hardware with good connectivity. If android tablets had that kind of connectivity I'd actually get one lol

So it's like an Android HTPC pretty much?

 

Looks pretty neat I guess, at first glance I thought it was a router of some sort. :lol:

I thought it was a super utility belt :lol:

 

What's the specification of it?

A descent andriod box for TV costs ~$50-$80. Not sure about good ones.

Here ya go:

The Tronsmart Prometheus Android-powered TV set-top box sports a 1.5GHz dual-core Amlogic AML8726 ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Mali-400 graphics under the hood, along with 1GB of DDR3 RAM.

 

The chip is the same as the one featured in the G-Box Dyno an Diamond Multimedia AMP1000 media players. It's not top notch and it's certainly not the fastest chip available on the market. It is, however, good enough to deliver a satisfactory performance and work with most Android apps and games, including Netflix and YouTube. The Prometheus box should also be able to work well with the XMBC media center for Android.

 

In terms of connectivity, the unit has three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, and Ethernet jacks and has built-in support for Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n. It runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and comes with 4GB of storage and packs an SD card slot as well.

 

The Tronsmart Prometheus set-top box also comes with a power adapter, a user manual, and the required mini HDMI cable.

d6bmg, you got the answer. It is a new kind of Android TV stick. The liliputing has made a review for this new gadget (view here: http://liliputing.co...mlogic-cpu.html). And you can find it at Aliexpress at $99.99, or GeekBuying, who claimed himself as the authorized retialer also at $99.
