USD 74 Android Computer launched ! Any takers?

How cheap is cheap for a computer?

$74? Yes, it’ll cut to to the ranks.

A $74 cheap computer that runs Android on an ARM processor has been launched. Called AllWinner, the computer is China made.

But don’t go thinking by “coming out of China” distinctions. The tiny, inexpensive Android PC has impressive specifications.

USD 74 AllWinner Mini Android PC
It uses an ARM A10 dual-core running at 1.5 GHz, runs on Android 4.0 (ICS), a Mali 400 GPU and offers 512MB of RAM. It has HDMI output and claims 1080p capability. Has 802.11b/g/n wireless support (WiFi) and USB connectivity. The specs are at par with last year’s best tablets and today’s best smartphones (notably you can find even devices out there powered by even lesser ARM power).

Availability: The computer is available for $74 dollars from Abi Express, the only retailer currently offering the device outside of Asian markets.

Some concerns: Only one USB hub and less than awesome mouse and keyboard support of Android.
