FXI "Cotton Candy" Dual-core USB Stick PC
****Booredatwork will be working with FXI to bring a review to you soon****
Norwegian Company FXI have created the world's smallest computer and its literally a thumb drive. The Cotton Candy might not seem much but it does pack a punch, more than some high-end smartphones or tables. In its tiny little gut the Cotton candy houses a 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos ARM CPU, quad-core GPU ARM Mali-400 MP , Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, micro SD card slot for storage(64Gb max), and a HDMI jack on the opposite end. So what can I do with a thumb drive computer?
The whole idea by FXI here is to allow you to convert your TV or laptop to a Android device; though FXI did mention an Ubuntu version is in the works and didn't rule out Windows either. This effectively makes the Cotton Candy the world's smallest computer. On the Android side of thing in the demo we saw. The FXI was plugged to a MacBook Air via USB port, With the Cotton Candy launch Android 2.3 in a separate window that was easy to navigate in and out of. We also so the Cotton Candy connected to a TV and the developer was able to control the device via a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse very effectively and smooth. Expect to see the FXI Cotton Candy in 2012, and the company is aiming for a sub $200 price tag.So enjo your hands-on video below
