$49 Android PC by VIA

You might have heard of Raspberry PI, the very low cost, credit-card sized computer that generated a lot of excitement – mostly for its price and size. Well, now it’s time for some real competition.

VIA Technologies, the company primarily known for motherboard chipsets, just unveiled a $49 APC Android PC system which comes with a browser, a selection of preinstalled apps and optimization for keyboard and mouse input, plus hardware acceleration for demanding video formats.

Powered by a WonderMedia ARM processor at 800MHz, APC integrates memory (DDR3 512MB), storage (2GB NAND Flash), and a full set of consumer I/O features, APC can be connected to a TV or monitor. APC consumes only 4 watts when operating at idle power and 13.5 watts at maximum load. This is ten times less than a standard PC system and ensures significant power savings in large scale deployments.

APC Android PC features:

  • Optimized Android OS
  • HD TV support
  • Hardware acceleration of the most demanding video formats
  • VGA and HDMI display ports
  • Four USB 2.0 ports
  • One microSD slot
  • One 10/100 Ethernet port
  • Audio-out/ Mic-in
  • VIA WonderMedia ARM 11 SoC
  • 2 GB NAND Flash
  • 512 DDR3 SDRAM
  • 15W power adaptor
