This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about FXI Tech’s Cotton Candy “world’s smallest PC” but here at Mobile World Congress we learned some exciting news about this neat little dual-core packing computer. FXI has promised that it will be receiving Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in March, they are just waiting on driver support that should be available any day now.
Inside this tiny PC we have a dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU, ARM Mali-400MP GPU, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and a micro-SD slot. On each side are the ports consisting of USB and HDMI-out for all types of use. Here at MWC they have it streaming video games via Ubuntu and others with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board but I’m mostly excited about the fact that they’ll possibly be shipping with Android 4.0 ICS soon.
The Cotton Candy model on display here is actually what will be shipping in March and has been slightly redesigned. They’ve changed to a simple white plastic exterior (black end caps) that should further help with heat dissipation and included a micro-USB slot on the side for even more possibilities with this micro-computing solution.
As originally promised the FXI Cotton Candy should start shipping this March and is available to pre-order now for just $199.
