Featuring a single-core 1.5GHz AllWinner A10 Cortex A8 ARM processor, Android 4.0, 512MB of DDR3 high-capacity memory, and WiFi connectivity, the MK802 is now available on Aliexpress for $74 including free shipping to the United States via China Post.

With a MALI400 graphics processing unit, the device from Chinese brand rikomagic features 4GB Flash storage, a microSD slot, and two USB ports: one full-sized and one micro, according to CNXSoft. Video output is via 1080p HDMI -- an HDMI cable needs to be added separately -- and users can tap either an Android virtual keyboard or add a wireless mouse and keyboard.

Perhaps best of all is that users can run Ubuntu, Debian, or another Linux distribution of their choice via microSD card.
