There are dozens of new Mini PC's and TV boxes each month, and taking upon ourselves the task of writing about each one will most certainly not be feasible - so we try to write mostly about interesting devices, even though some, like the one mentioned in this article, might never be available in our part of the world.

So today let's talk about Bandott STB, a 4K TV box currently available in Taiwan.

Powered by Amlogic S905D, the Bandott B+ STB looks like the perfect content streamer : Netflix and Youtube in 4K, a few other local streaming services (myVideo, CatchPlay, iQiYi) and you can also stream your own content to the TV (using the Google Cast function).

The device might impress with it's voice-enabled airmouse (with dedicated buttons for the aforementioned streaming services), but it also has two HDMI-IN ports, so you can connect external devices to it for even more content.

Bandott STB/B+ Mini PC

The Bandott STB seems to be offered for free, as you will need to pay a monthly fee for the video content services (if you live in Taiwan, that is).
Reading with Google translate is still painful, but the Bandott service seems to be owned by Foxconn, which you might already know as the largest employer in China ... and for manufacturing the iPhone.

Acording to early reviews the device comes in both Chinese and English, a bit better than Mi Box started :-)

There aren't many devices offering 4K Netflix, so the Bandott device is impressive just by that- perhaps Foxconn can extend this to other parts of the world in the future.
With their recently-revealed US plans, that might just happen.
