CVJI-E212, one more cheap Allwinner A10 media player

I started looking into a number of devices based on Allwinner A10 SoC — this appears to be a very popular chip in China, and there are endless varieties of cheap tablets and HDMI media players. Among the most known are Mele A1000/A2000, MK802, MK802+, MiniX media players — they all provide HDMI interface, one or two USB ports, and some of them come with a built-in WiFi adapter.  The chip also supports OTG USB interface, and some of those devices also provide it. Also MK802 can be powered from the USB port.

Those devices come usually with pre-installed Android 4.0. Typically the OS supports only a limited range of screen resolutions and frequencies (I couldn’t get a decent picture on my Sony Bravia TV and on a computer monitor via a HDMI-to-DVI adapter).
