Android System With Dual Core Processor Android 2.3 Squeezed Onto USB Stick
“Less is more” is a mantra Norwegian company FXI Technologies seems to believe in. How accurate is the unofficial philosophy? Well, they recently presented their USB computer prototype, ‘Cotton Candy‘. Some of you are thinking, “why the unusual name”? There’s actually a clever reason– the USB computer weighs just 21 grams, the same weight as a bag of you guessed it, cotton candy. You plug the USB computer into your device with a USB slot (TV, computer, phone, tablet, you name it!) and run the operating system as you would a normal Android device. Many of you are shrugging and thinking, “big deal”.
It is indeed a big deal because the company has managed to squeeze in high-end specs that rivals many Android devices. Check this out– the device features Android 2.3, a 1.2GHz dual-core Samsung Exynos ARM CPU (yep, the same as in that oh-so fast Galaxy S II phone), 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI-out and oh, an SD card slot for expandable memory. Something for you to salivate over even more is the fact that since the USB computer has a dual-core processor, you’ll be able to view full HD videos from the web or local 1080p HD videos. By the looks of this, FXI needs to hurry and start production of this thing so people like me can hurry up and snag one up.
