Giada Launches the Q11, A Full-Featured Mini-PC Running Android 4.0
First demo-ed at this year's CES, Giada's Q11 Mini-PC is now officially available. The Q11 is unique amongst Mini-PCs because it uses an ARM processor and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Inside the Q11 is an AllWinner A10 SoC that is based off the Cortex A8 processor and runs at 1GHz. Complementing it is a Mail-400 GPU, 1GB of DDR3 memory and 8GB of flash storage. Additional storage can be added with the use of any 2.5-inch form factor drive with a SATA connection. Additionally, the Q11 will have integrated WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. The Q11 even has a built-in 2200mAh battery to battle against sudden power outages.
For users who are looking for an alternative to Windows-based Mini-PCs, the Q11 is an interesting option.
