Chinese retailer DealExtreme has put a new network media player on sale which looks like a USB drive (and weighs a tiny 40g) but is actually a fully-fledged Android based computer capable of, well, replacing a desktop computer.
The device connects, via a HDMI port, to the TV set and is apparently powered via USB (although we're not sure how that is done).
At only 82 x 25 x 12mm, it is as powerful as some entry level tablets we've seen on the market and by far the cheapest computer we've seen at $51 (or roughly £33).
There's a single core Cortex-A8 based processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 512MB of RAM, 4GB onboard storage, Wi-Fi, a USB and microUSB port and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The computer - which is not more expensive than the Raspberry Pi - supports 1080p plus a number of audio and video formats. You will also be able to plug USB flash drives (no hard disk drive) up to 32GB.
