Pc-on-a-Stick is an Android operating system that stuffed into a USB device and all you need it to work is a monitor and you got a PC! Talk about 007. The device was developed and manufactured by a company called FXI which they code name it "Cotton Candy" and it is the latest tech device that is about to hit the market... and its going to hit big!
Attach it to an old monitor and you have a PC running on the latest Android 4.0 software. With this you will be able to run thousands of applications available for Android, watch Youtube, stream music, read emails even watch HD movies, basically everything that you can do on your mobile you will be able to do on a big screen.. essentially an old dusty unused monitor can be revived to become a SMART TV.
However a chinese manufacturer beaten FXI's 'Cotton Candy' to market at just $74 as opposed to Cotton Candy harsh $200. Behold the Rikomagic MK802! this baby packs a 1.5 GHz single core Allwinner A10 processor with 512MB/1GB of RAM also with 4GB storage up to 32gb. It also comes with a mini USB 2.0 a mini HDMI jack for output at 1080p (video to HDTV) port and power.
Both models have slightly different specifications. The Cotton Candy measures up with a 1.2 GHz Samsung Exynos dual core processor with 1GB RAM and a card slot for a micro SD if you wanted to add more storage, a maximum of 64GB is available, also a USB 2.0 port. 802.11b/g WiFi is available and it also supports HD video playback in many video formats.
These clever devices lets you to attach a keyboard and mouse (or wireless ones depends how 007 you feel). It is small enough to carry in your pocket. So if your mobile goes bust at least you have a really cool back up.
This device should be hitting the market soon and potentially will be on most people Christmas wish list.
