ANDHDM2S: Dual-core Android computer-on-a-stick with HDMI connectivity

The HDMI Dongle and Cotton Candy were the first USB stick-sized Android devices profiled on this website. Here comes a third one – the ANDHDM2S.

It comes to us courtesy of Sanko Co., Ltd. of Japan. Measuring just (in mm) 10x98x42, and weighing in at just 39 g (1.4 oz), this computer is really small. But size is not just what this device has going for it – it has its own fair share of connectivity. From the title of this article, you already know that it has an HDMI port. But it also has a: standard USB port, microSD slot, and Mic ports. Add built-in wireless connectivity to the list. The microSD port makes it possible to extend the 4 GB internal storage by a maximum of 32 GB.

All that is powered by an ARM Cortex-A9 Dual-core 1.06GHz processor with 512 MB of RAM. It has an output resolution of 1080p (1920×1080 pixel) and can handle a wide variety of file formats, including: (video) MPG 1/2/4, WMV 7/8/9 (VC1), ASF, H264/H 263, MP4, FLV, 3GPP, MOV, MKV, RM/RMVB, TS, M2TS, DIVX/XVID, AVI, DAT; (audio) OGG, M4A, MID, MP3, WAV, AMR, WMA, FLAC, RA, AAC, etc.; (images) BMP, JPG, PNG, GIF.
Android HDMI Andhdm2s

The only weakness, from my perspective, is that it runs Android 2.3. And there is no indication whether it is upgradeable to Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Even if it is not, with a price tag of about ¥10,000 or about $125 (US), it is not such a bad deal.

The following screen shots show all the good sides of ANDHDM2S.
