First time about MINIX NEO U9-H you could read at the beginning of September. New TV Box from MINIX was shown at IFA 2016. A little MINIX has told us to wait for the new device, but it paid off. If you visited recently known online shops, lacked in stock NEO U9-H. Strong interest MINIX fans made havoc :) . Fortunately the device is available again in popular stores. MINIX NEO U9-H is available on Geekbuying from $139.90 to $159.90 (MINIX NEI U9-H + A3 Air Mouse), and for $142.40 on Gearbest.
