Android running on tablets and smartphones, but VIA is using the operating system for one of its upcoming PCs. Capitalizing on the recent trend of inexpensive PCs the Raspberry Pi seems to have ignited, the company announced its new APC Paper PC today.

BlueStacks has been offering it for a while, but AMD announced today that they're joining in on the fun. The company revealed a partnership with BlueStacks and introduced the AppZone Player.

Ice Cream Sandwich on a stick this little device is worth the wait. We first reported on the FXI Cotton Candy USB stick back in January, and received some hands-on during Mobile World Congress in February. The Computer-on-a-stick was supposed to ship in March but pre-orders will now be shipping at the end of the month with a slight design change and improved hardware.
Splashtop's has. The Splashtop Remote Desktop HD app lets your tablet remotely log into your Windows or OS X machine and control it remotely. As someone who's tried all the big VNC and RDP apps, I can say that it's surprisingly reliable - but perhaps not as reliable as its $20 price tag demands. It's a good thing, then, that the developer has put the app on sale for $4.99 in the Google Play Store, granting an awesome 75% discount.
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.
