Xiaomi set top box offers iOS, Android device streaming
Wednesday, November 14, 2012 @ 11:39am

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has now introduced a set-top box that connects to HDTVs and user's mobile devices. The Xiaomi Box runs on MIUI version of Android and is said to support AirPlay, DLNA, and Miracast wireless streaming standards. Like similar devices, there is also access to paid content in the form of digital movie rentals and purchases, albeit from various Chinese content stores.



Android apps can also run on the box, and the multimedia file support is extensive. Videos in up to 1080p resolution can be played back thanks to the 800MHz Cortex A9 processor and 1GB of RAM. Wi-Fi is onboard, while physical connections include an HDMI connection, an Ethernet port, a composite video output, a microUSB port, a digital audio out, and the power connection. Xiaomi promises weekly software updates for the device, which ships in December in China, priced at 399 yuan, or about $64.
