iSMRTV

Posted by admin under Gadgets

Android operating system from Google, crawled rapidly into our lives in the last two years by spreading itself through smartphones and tablets. Among the many advantages this system brought along, one is particularly important – the relatively low hardware requirements. This probably explains the large amount of applications written for it in such a short period of time.

The same moderate hardware requirements that Android has brought quite a few manufacturers to develop devices with drivers taken from smartphones and packed into a small body.  When this device is connected to the TV, it creates a tiny Media Center computer. The streamers market reached a point where it starts to get redundant. Instead of setting another device, adding it to the cables and having it gather dust next to your TV, you now have an efficient choice with Donegal Android. But can it really compete with the existing streamers? We strongly believe that features like an energy efficient processor ARM Cortex A5 at 1GHz, a Mali 400 graphics processor, 512MB of RAM memory and internal storage capacity of 4GB are up to completing the task.

All this comes wrapped in a small package that reminds the appearance of an USB flash disk. The device connects to the TV using an HDMI standard cable and includes a single connection of USB 2.0. There is also a micro USB connection and memory card slot for a Micro SD.

Unlike an Android phone that is operated through touch screen, the “Android on a stick” needs some help from an external keyboard, which can very well be a wireless one. This keyboard’s design is similar to that of a remote control for console games, so it’s convenient to hold it with both hands and make a “thumbs typing”.

The iSMRTV Displays an operating system packed into a small box. This is not a dedicated streamer (which provides a simple and targeted menu), but one which provides a base for adding smart features to your TV with countless applications available for download (free or paid) from Google Play.

This particular product comes with a fairly basic hardware and it can be used as an instrument to play and view multimedia files on screen in the living room (up to the limits of its CPU), as well as allow for browsing and playing games on TV.
