Chinese communications giant Huawei might be better known for its smartphones and while it has just released a new mini PC in the MediaQ M310, it was actually preceded by this Huawei MediaQ M210 TV stick model in 2012.
It’s a fairly lean model in terms of features with only a single microUSB port for DC power input, no USB2.0 host port and no external storage. But it’s one of the few mini PCs to come with its own made-for remote control unit.
The MediaQ M210 is powered by a single-core HiSilicon HI3716MV300 Cortex A9 SoC CPU with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of on-board storage. Other details of this model are pretty slim – we think the CPU clock speed is 600MHz but that is yet to be confirmed. What is surprising is that despite the basic CPU and general feature level of this mini PC, it still apparently manages to include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0.
However, this one doesn’t come cheap – from the resellers still stocking it on Aliexpress, we’ve seen $80 as the price tag for this model. Today, that figure would buy you a quad-core mini PC from almost any number of vendors.
