You didn't mention that:
- the UHOST2 has two full size USB connectors (so you can plug in devices directly rather than through a hub).
- the 2A supply has plenty of left over power to run connected USB devices (UHOST2 uses less than 1 Amp). [although in the past some very cheap OEMs have been known to replace the standard power supply with something less powerful]
- it runs the RK3066 at 1.4GHz (with future firmware upgrade to 1.5GHz) using a special graphite cooling block and heat dissipation gel block which is faster than other RK3066 TV stick devices [the RK3066 chip is technically capable of running up to 1.6Ghz but most Android TV sticks can't run it at more than 1.2GHz speed due to heat issues.]
- the Umouse2 Air mouse remote (which is specifically designed to work with the UHOST2) has a built-in microphone
- there is a dedicated button on the Umouse2 to turn the Uhost2 device on and off.
- it comes with a pre-installed Voice control application to allow you to control the device using voice commands (from the remote)
- includes DLNA and Airplay applications pre-installed (amongst many other)
- the UHOST2 has a "Udisk" button which changes the USB ports from a USB host to USB device so that the Uhost's internal storage and TF card come up as "flash drives" when connected to a computer (i.e., it can be used as a way of easily transferring files to or from a computer).
- comes pre-rooted so you can run any apps you want on it.
- supports Bluetooth Audio
- supports full 1080p video streaming over Wifi using DLNA (andropos reported 72Mbps wifi bandwidth)

[The above points are according to posted reviews. Read here: http://www.squidoo.com/uhost2-dual-core-android-mini-pc and http://tabletrepublic.com/forum/latest- ... -3127.html]

Seems like a pretty cool set of features with the company offering more software support rather than just the basic hardware (and no I do not work for them or a reseller - I just think it looks good!).
