Via Android PC (APC) Looks Amazing, Price & Release Coming Soon

Posted on 23 May 2012 by pinoytutorial

Being known to be flexible, Google’s Android OS was put into good use by VIA Technologies in its Android PC (APC).

The APC is not your ordinary PC as it is only a motherboard. It has a dimension of 170x85mm and has the very basic specifications in it. Processor is the WM8750 SoC which has a clock speed of 800MHz. As for RAM, it is a fair 512MB DDR3 coupled with 2GB of flash memory. When we talk about its OS, VIA utilized Android 2.3 for the APC.

It comes with a BIOS chip, audio controller and Ethernet controller with speeds of 10/100Mbps. Powering it up can either be an external 12-volt adapter or through the internal 4-pin 12v connector. It has D-sub and HDMI connectors as well as four (4) USB 2.0 ports. It also comes with an Ethernet port and a pair of audio jacks. There is also a microSD card slot which will be used for storage (other option would be through USB).

Being very simple, it does have a limitation and this is the support for above 720p resolution. July is the launch for VIA’s APC and it would retail for a pocket-friendly price of US$49. It comes bundled with a 15W power adapter and Android pre-installed.
