Simple Set Top Box

We need a device with these features:


-Basically it is the size of a small TV set top box

-Had a really simple internal architecture

-Can run a full OS like one of the really small/simple linux distros

-Can output to a TV

-Has two USB ports (which ideally could take a mouse and keyboard for input)

-Has a LAN port (not mandatory)

-Has a microSD slot to expand memory (the internal need only be enough for the OS and some little more)

-Has a port to take a GSM SIM card to access mobile network SMS and data (3G/GPRS/etc)


-The device will be used to run a very small light linux based OS so the hardware does not need to be modern and flashy, just something that can run a lightweight OS, a browser and basic programs with ease. This means that the processor can even be a pentium 3 processor - basically, the hardware does not need to be modern.


-The device is similar to this one: [url removed, login to view]

-The target price of the device is as close to $50 or lower as possible (of course if this is not possible then it can be raised)


1. Does a device like this exist? If so, we would like you to quote us on supply of the device.

2. We are also interested in engaging you to design and manufacture such a device. Give price to supply complete unit and give price to supply PCB files and BOM only.


Please do not be limited by the price range for this project, we just picked it randomly and know that it can go higher/lower.
