Cotton Candy Micro PC
Cotton Candy USB-sized PC goes on sale…
The tiny PC that caused a huge Internet storm, the
$25 $35 Raspberry Pi, created an equal frenzy when it final went on sale in February early this month. Being the only device of its type, and with such an incredible low price, the micro PC sold out within hours.
However, the Raspberry Pi is the only USB-sized computer on the market… enter the Cotton Candy PC.

We also featured this device a few months back, but pre-ordering time has finally come, and if the Raspberry shopping rush was anything to go by, hopefully stocks of this slightly more expensive Cotton Candy micro PC should be better able to deal with the orders.
The device runs on either Android 4.0 or Ubuntu operating systems, and features an ARM Cortex-A9 1.2GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, a Mali 400 GPU for high-definition video decoding, and support for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
It plugs in using a USB connection for power and an HDMI connector for the display. The device is available for pre-order and should ship this month for around $199.
