Monitor Manufacturer AOC is the company now ready to be part of the Android market. AOC launches mySmart all-in-one, which comes preloaded with Android 4.2 (Ice-cream Sandwich) and various PC-like features, making it a self-contained and fairly a portable desktop.
The recent roll out runs Android instead of the typical three major operating systems: Windows, OS X and Chrome OS. There have been companies that brought Android-powered desktops and laptops in the past. But they were unable to bring hype into the world.
Android-powered mySmart all-in-one desktops are released in 22-inch AOC A2272PW4T ($299) and 24-inch A2472PW4T ($399) sizes, giving LED-backlit touchscreen, complete with HDMI and VGA inputs for connecting the chosen source.
The company lists the following specs:
- Screen size: 24-inch (A2472PW4T) or 22-inch (A2272PWHT)
- 1920 x 1080 resolution
- Android 4 x Ice Cream Sandwich

The manufacturer further cited, "Whether you're surfing the Web, working from home or watching a movie, the AOC mySmart all-in-ones have the power to get the job done with ample storage, immersive touch technology and access to the entire Google Play library of applications and games to customize your mySmart experience."
"Sync all of your accounts like Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and more to effortlessly interact with your world. With mySmart's portable design, you can explore extensive entertainment, productivity and educational apps to browse and download music, magazines, books, movies, television programs and over 1 million Android applications from any room in the house. You can also instantly transform the mySmart into a touch monitor by connecting it to your PC by HDMI cable."
Also, it is visible through pictures that the mySmart's stand is flexible and can be folded or placed at various angles, including a fairly shallow one for typing.
It may be a perfect option for users where Web browsing and light office work is the main focus.
