What a Stick PC must include

I must admit that although I have been tempted by some of these stick PC's , they all lack something which has put me and most others off from buying them. Basically I believe they need to contain the following features before I and many will buy them.

If any PC Stick manufacturers are listening - Take note

1) Full support and load of Linux and at least Android Jelly Bean. I and many others would love to see a dual boot capability between these two. Simply put, if you can't get Linux on it , it's not a PC. ie Linux is mandatory and holds back many people from buying these.

2) Bluetooth, so many people have told me they have not bought previous models because thay had no bluetooth. This is also one of the main reasons I have held off. No BT means you cannot connect to a whole heap of BT accessories and devices - Not good.

3) A proper HDMI connector at one end that you can just plug into a TV. Some of these PC sticks require you to connect with a cable, FAIL - there meant to be portable , carrying a cable is a big turn off.

4) A Decent SOC with a good GPU. I'd like to see one with a Samsung quad Exynos 4412 SOC, or at least a RK32xx series quad.

5) Off course the standard features like Wifi and micro SD slot and at least 8gb of Nand, USB hub ports etc.

6) Current sizes are where they need to stay at , ie a smallish stick size , no bigger than the HI-802

The above are mandatory for me, the following are nice to have.

7) As a stretch goal, Id go for 2gb memory and Audio output (at least a headphone jack)

Please feel free to comment with your opinions and wants.

1-Android is Linux.

2-MK808B (Bluetooth)

3-They're called port-savers. Also the cable makes the whole setup less susceptible to damage.

4-Quads are coming on the market.

5-6 Features, size, cost, pick two.

7-There already is a stick with an audio jack. I've even seen one with a camera built in.

I spent $63 on a MK808 along with a RC12 a few weeks ago on marcmart.com. As far, it is the cheapest and best Android Google TV box I can serched online. I would like to recommand to anyone as it charges no shipping cost! Good product!
