Thursday, July 12, 2012 How about taking Talking Tom or Ben to your TV? Sounds fun right? Running your favourite Android apps on a large-screen TV gives a great experience. We all know that most of the Android devices comes along with a HDMI port that helps in streaming content from smartphones or tablets to big-screen TVs, but if you want to use a dedicated device for this purpose and spare your Android buddy, then you can own a new gizmo named Mini X that can stay connected to your TV all day.

The most exciting feature of this little box is that it can run Linux too that no currently available smartphone can. Mini X by default runs Android (out of the box) and plugs directly in to your TV - allowing apps to run directly on the big-screen. Based on an Allwinner A10 processor it has 512 MB RAM, 4 GB integrated storage, a microSD card slot for storage expansion, dual USB ports, integrated Wi-Fi, and an HDMI output.

At a price of $99, it supports an external antenna and a wireless remote control with Android specific buttons for apps, including home, menu, app drawer, search and back buttons. The Mini X can run Android (2.3, 4.0), Ubuntu, Fedora, and Puppy brothers of Linux.
