FXI demos “any screen” connected computing USB device

Posted on Friday, November 25th, 2011 in Android, Prototypes, USB by the machinegeek

Trev writes to inform us of an Android computer in a USB key. This device is now being prototyped by FXI and has been code named Cotton Candy. “The Cotton Candy is a USB stick sized computer device that allows users a single, secure point of access to all personal cloud services and apps through their favorite operating system, while delivering a consistent experience on any screen. The device will serve as a companion to smartphones, tablets, and notebook PC and Macs, as well add smart capabilities to existing displays, TVs, set top boxes and other media that supports USB mass storage.” Specs include a Quad-core ARM Mali-400MP 720p / 1080p OpenGL ES v2.0, 1 GB DRAM, WiFi and Bluetooth plus MicroSD card, HDMI output and the Android OS.

    This is cool. I wonder when they come out with USB3 version. That would really make sense.
