FXI showcased its Ubuntu/Linux and Android Ice Cream Sandwich powered USB PC for the first time at the Showstoppers Media Event at CES 2012. Codenamed 'Cotton Candy', this device will serve as a technology bridge between any display, the Cloud, and any input peripheral.
"One of the major benefits of the Cotton Candy device is its versatility," said Borgar Ljosland, Founder and CEO of FXI Technologies. "By demonstrating two new operating systems on a variety of screens from PCs, to Macs to TVs, we further show the flexibility of the world’s smallest computer."
The USB PC features ARM Cortex-A9 (1.2GHz) CPU, Quad Core ARM Mali-400MP Graphics Processing Unit with 1GB of RAM. It offeres up to 64GB memory local storage (microSD). It comes with support for Wifi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.
Cotton Candy will allow 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 through its USB and HDMI connections. The device will serve as a companion to smartphones, tablets, notebook PC and Macs, as well as add smart capabilities to existing displays, TVs, set top boxes and game consoles.
