MediaTek powers a host of portable and desktop devices that are ideal for enjoying the World Cup at home or on the move. Here we check out the Acer Chromebook Spin 513, using the MediaTek 1380, which can stream live video over WiFi as well as cellular networks. So even when you’re away, you can still enjoy those big matches.
The Chromebook Spin’s 360-degree flip design means you can prop it up in ‘tent mode’ to enjoy some footy on any flat surface. That Full HD display is crisp and poppy, while the stereo speaker setup is great for adding a bit of atmosphere.
The MediaTek 1380 also offers SIM support, so you can slip in a SIM card and get connected while travelling. That means you won’t miss a single match, as long as you don’t venture too far into the wilderness.
If you’re at home, you can always hook the Acer Chromebook Spin 513 up to the Amazon Echo Studio for even beefier audio. This massive smart speaker is again powered by MediaTek, so not only do you get crisp, clear audio, but the Echo Studio can even adjust the sound to suit your acoustics.
