Shenzhen-based electronics firm Pipo introduces its X1 stick PC, which can run either Android, or Windows 10.
The X1 stick PC was first unveiled at Computex last month. The PC stick looks broadly similar to the ECS PCoS – Intel Compute Stick, which was introduced nearly 2 months ago.
Intel built its Compute Stick as a reference for other manufacturers, because Intel believes in its new strategy regarding small computing as it was reported during the Intel Developers Forum in China last April.
Other manufacturers, like the Taiwanese Quanta is also working on (prototypes) of a PC stick with the Intel reference platform; the Quanta NH6, as reported a few weeks ago.
The PiPO X1 stick PC will use an Intel Atom Z3735F processor, together with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. It also features a Micro SD card reader, a full sized USB port and an additional micro USB port. An HDMI connector is responsible for the video output.
The price and release date aren’t known yet, but probably it will be available this autumn for less the price Intel will ask for its stick PC.
