FXI Technologies Cotton Candy

What’s 3.1 inches long, 1 inch wide, less than half an inch tall and packs a quad-core ARM A9 1.2 GHz processor, quad-core GPU, 802.1 b/g/n, Bluetooth, 1 Gigabyte RAM, a micro-SF slot, and a USB and HDMI connector? FXI Technologies' Cotton Candy. A tiny computer that relies on an external USB power source and HDMI-capable screen, Cotton Candy can run Android or Ubuntu Linux, and a virtualization client for other operating systems. While it’s not available yet, your geeky loved ones will gladly take an IOU and wait for this puppy to ship. -- Mike Fratto
Price: Not disclosed; rumored to be $200
