New MK888B TV box delivers Bluetooth

mk888The MK888 is one of just a number of models using this sloping-front TV box style chassis, along with the EKB311 and CS918. However, this new Bluetooth version has just hit the market called the MK888B.

Otherwise, it looks to be identical to the original MK888 release – powered by Rockchip’s everywhere RK3188 quad-core Cortex A9 SoC CPU, the MK888B features 2GB of RAM and 8GB of flash, preloaded with Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system.

Networking here gets a boost to now include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, RJ45 Fast Ethernet and now Bluetooth, however, it seems it’s only Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. Still, that’s better than no Bluetooth at all. This one also comes with an external Wi-Fi antenna.

As for external connectivity, you get three USB ports, although only two of them are standard USB2.0 Type-A ports (the third is a microUSB OTG option). You also get two video output options including HDMI and composite AV, the latter through a 3.5mm TRRS (tip-ring-ring-sleeve) connector.

We’ve found this one now available on Aliexpress for $118 including shipping. At that price, it’s a little more expensive than we’ve seen for other similarly-equipped models and it would’ve been nice to see Bluetooth 4.0 here.
