FXI Cotton Candy puts Android OS on a USB stick. Just add monitor.

FXI Cotton Candy ARM Micro Computer

FXI Technology has introduced a tiny computer, running Android, that fits on a USB stick.  It’s a proper computer, with a processor, WiFi, Bluetooth, and HDMI output.  All it needs is  monitor, mouse, keyboard, or other accessory over Bluetooth and you’re ready to surf the web, watch videos, play games, or do just about anything else you can do with an Android device.

The FXI Cotton Candy is powered by a 1.2 GHz ARM Samsung Exynos Cortex-A9 processor with ARM Mali 400 MP graphics. It’s powered through the USB port. FXI is showing off the device with Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread — although it can also run Ubuntu Linux or other operating systems.  There’s also 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 1GB of RAM, and supports up to 64GB of storage with a microSD card slot.

All that comes in a package that weighs just 21 grams!

It’s possible to connect an external display via an HDMI port, but you can also connect the Cotton Candy into a computer’s USB port and launch an Android environment on a Mac or PC. This lets you run Android apps on a Windows or OS X computer, or transfer files between your Mac or PC and the USB stick by dragging and dropping.

FXI hopes to find partners to bring the Cotton Candy to market in late 2012 for less than $200.
