Cotton Candy: A Sweet Computing Treat

Another computer in thumb drive format, the Cotton Candy by FXI, a Norwegian developer, is a beast. Sporting an ARM Cortex-A9 running at 1.2GHz and a Quad Core ARM Mali-400MP Graphics Processing Unit with 1GB RAM and up to 64GB memory local storage via a microSD, the Cotton Candy can run Android or Ubuntu Linux and includes an embedded virtualization client for Windows, Linux and Mac. Connectivity is via Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1. Ports include USB 2.0, HDMI with audio at 1080P, and a micro USB 2.0. Somewhat delayed over its original shipping date, preorders began shipping in late May. Priced at $200 it's going to have some stiff competition, but if you want performance, this device should be a market leader.
