The new Rikomagic MK802 II is the latest generation of Android 4.0 Mini PC. It is based on the incredibly popular Rikomagic MK802 which has already set the standard of Android Mini PC’s.
The new MK802 II has a revised form factor which not only feels more compact it also allows easier connection to TV/Displays by using a full size HDMI connector which is located conveniently at the end of the device. The all new ESD circuitry provides trouble free operation on all makes and models of TV/Display. Connectivity has been improved further by the use of micro USB ports and the device now has a total of 3 USB ports despite its incredibly compact form factor.
The MK802 II now features on board power management which allows the user to soft start/shutdown the device eliminating the possibility of data corruption.
At the heart of the Rikomagic MK802 II is the Allwinner A10 Cortex-A8 high speed processor. The redesigned PCB layout of the device allows a true clock speed of 1GHz for much snappier performance. The increased power of the A10 combined with 1GB of onboard High Speed DDR3 RAM means this remarkable device can deliver hardware performance that is close to a desktop computer.
With the MK802 II the user can enjoy 1080P HD video, Access to the internet via the built in browser which has support for rich HTML 5 and Flash content, Play 3D games, Stream music and Download Apps from the Google Play Store, all on a TV with a HDMI connection!

Congratulation -- this is exciting news!

Aside from the extra usb port (good!), ESD and power switch (very good) and the higher clock speed (great!), what is the difference between MK802II and the original? Specificially, are the OS -- both android & linux -- *interchangable* between the two?

What about heat (especially in light of the higher clock)? Is it really enough power
this from a single USB cable (at 0.5amp)? Is the included micro-usb to usb cable "hot" -- i.e. can run in host mode?

MANY THANKS! This is great news!

Can you provide us any more details on the hardware changes that were made to allow for both of these new features? For example, is the voltage regulator any different? Were there any changes made to accomodate the increase in clock speed? And what is the exact new clock speed (I would assume 1008 MHz)?

Sorry for the delay, things have been kind of hectic with the launch and all.

To summarise answers to the questions above:

The main differences from the original MK802 are redesigned PCB layout, power regulator (previous Mk802 didnt have one), extra USB socket, nicer design (we think!), ESD circuitry. The firmware is based on the second Rikomagic update and the device will run Linux from an SD card as it did before.

The CPU clock speed hasn't changed but as there is now proper power management on board it should make tweaking things much easier. ;) it also allows soft shutdown so you can now properly power down the device. The standard clock speed is fairly generic across all A10 devices at 1008MHZ.

A dedicated power adapter is no longer necessary as there is ample current available from any modern USB socket to power the device, if you choose to use a PSU then you can use any USB mains adapter to power the device.

Any chance you'll be putting these on an Amazon store soon? I have a voucher I'd love to blow on one of these bad boys, and I'd prefer to get it 'from source' if possible.

Will the current Linux distros that work on the original MK802 work on the MK802II? I am hoping to get Ubuntu working on my Motorola Atrix Lapdock as an ultrabook.
