Smart Mini PC features VIA WonderMedia CPU

smartminipcThe Smart Mini PC is one of the cheapest USB stick-style mini PCs we’ve seen so far in 2013. It’s also the first we’ve seen with a VIA SoC CPU. The Smart Mini PC is powered by WonderMedia’s WM8850 chip – a single-core Cortex A9 processor clocking at 1.5GHz with ARM’s single-core Mali-400 graphics engine on-board.

It comes with 1GB of RAM but just 4GB of on-board flash storage. While it’s not obvious from the pics, the specs claim this one comes with a MicroSD card slot. More easily seen are the requisite USB2.0 host and MicroUSB OTG ports so you can provide external storage as required.

The Smart Mini PC comes with the standard HDMI plug style of chassis and includes built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi but no Bluetooth as far as we can tell.

However, bottom line, with only a single-core Cortex A9 chip, this one isn’t going to set the world alight with its performance, which is no doubt why you’ll find this one selling for under $40 including shipping from retailers online.
