TP-Link introduces TPmini Android TV box with a camera

The TPmini is designed to sit on top of a flat screen TV and point a camera in your direction. It’s powered by a 1.6 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor and ARM Mali 400 graphics.

TP-Link’s box has:
  • 1GB of RAM, 
  • 4GB of built-in storage, 
  • runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
  • You can connect it to your TV through the HMDI 1.3 port
  • connect to the internet using WiFi or Ethernet. 
  • The box also has a microSD card slot for extra storage
  • 2 USB 2.0 ports which you can use to connect a keyboard, mouse, gamepad, remote control, or a USB flash drive.
  • TP-Link does offer a mobile app that lets you control the device from your Android phone or tablet.

The TPmini is expects to go up for pre-sale in China for about $56 soon.

TP-Link is probably best known in the US for the company’s wireless routers and other networking products. But that puts the company ahead of most Chinese Android TV box manufacturers, which aren’t really known in the US for anything at all. It’s not clear if the company has any plans to offer the TPmini through major US retailers, but I suspect it won’t be long before it’s available for purchase through AliExpress or other places where you can order products shipped directly from China.
