Meet Venz V10, the newest Amlogic S905 Mini PC
A while ago we mentioned Venztech and their new European office in Netherlands.
Looks like they now have a new device coming and it is based on - you guessed it - Amlogic S905.
The ever popular Amlogic S905 SoC with it's quad core 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU (up to 2.0 GHz) and penta-core ARM Mali-450 GPU (up to 750Mhz) is a good choice, but there are many other devices with this chipset - how will Venz get some attention for their product?
First of all, this device is meant for European market, so expect less Chinese apps and more apps you might actually use, like Netflix (albeit probably not HD, this one).
Second, the device comes with 3 years warranty and will be shipped from within EU - so there will be no customs fees or VAT or other unexpected expenses.

Venz V10 will be available in just two feeks for €69.95 including VAT.
As you can see in the video below, the device has a small footprint (11 x 11 x 3cm and 240g weight) - and it comes with a power adapter, IR remote (with mouse pointer - using the arrow keys), 2 batteries for the said remote and an HDMI 2.0 cable.
You might want to use an airmouse with kwerty keyboard with Venz V10, and that's why folks at Venz are selling their VENZ VZ-RK-1 2.4GHz fly-air-mouse as an accessory (for €24.95). Some European retailers might bundle the V10 with VZ-RK-1, so you might get a better price for the two if you buy them as a package.
