    Tronsmart Draco AW80 TV box has octa-core CPU up to 4GB RAM - Liliputing (click for full article)

    -- Google’s $99 Nexus Player is now available for purchase and it should ship in early November. I’m just starting to test the TV box and while I really like the new Android TV user interface, until more third-party developers adapt their apps to the platform, there’s a relatively small number of things you can actually do with a Nexus Player.

    But over the past few years hundreds of TV boxes running Android software have come out of China. Most use the same version of Android that runs on a smartphone or tablet. While that means some apps can be hard to use with a remote control, at least it means there are thousands of apps that you can try.

    China’s Tronsmart is responsible for a decent number of those TV boxes… and now the company has released one of the first models with an 8-core Allwinner A80 Octa processor. It’s also one of the first I’ve seen that supports up to 4GB of RAM.

    Those boxes don't run the official Google Android TV platform. They run Android KitKat designed for tablets and phones. Some have custom app launchers designed to take an operating system made for phones and tablets and make it easier to use on a television. But underneath, they’re all limited by the fact that they’re running software designed for touchscreens on a device that doesn’t have a touchscreen.
