The Ainol V1 is a new Dual OS Mini PC powered by the Intel Z3735F. Ainol’s previous device, the Ainol Mini PC, was an impressive performer, so I’m keen to seen see how Ainol’s 2nd attempt pans out.
Abandoning the power bank feature of its predecessor, the Ainol V1 has adopted a more traditional TV box form factor in both silver and white.
The specifications are more or less what we’ve seen on other mini PCs. Powered by the Intel Z3735F, the Ainol V1 mini PC features the (now standard) 2Gb RAM and 32Gb of software. B/g/n Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0 also make an appearance.
A few of the specs still haven’t been finalised. Based on the renders, it appears that the Ainol V1 Mini PC will feature 2 full size USB ports, micro SD card slot, HDMI, Ethernet and 3.5mm audio. There’s also what looks like a micro USB port that may be a USB OTG port that we’ve seen in a number of other Android devices.
It will run both Windows 8.1 with Bing and Android (which I’m guessing will be Android 4.4 like we’ve seen in other dual OS mini PCs).
As the Ainol V1 is still in development, these technical specifications may change. I’ve tried to compile what I know about it this stage.

Michael did you see the Intel stick roadmap? That core m chip looks good if they deliver it at a nice price point ? A cheap powerful mass chip would kill all competition.
I did. Looks interesting and I’m glad to see USB 3.0 and wireless AC making an appearance. You’re right about price being the key factor here. Core M chips seem to be prohibitively expensive currently even in Chinese devices, so I’m a little concerned what price Intel would want for their device. That said, some of Intel’s new Atom chips could be the key here.
