A PC the size of a large memory stick? Believe it. The Cotton Candy may be small, but it has the ability to transform a TV into a fully functional PC. Connecting via HDMI, it’s powered through its USB port (ensure your power supply has a sufficient current output), using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to get you online and connected to other devices. The Cotton Candy runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, so operating it is as easy as working your smartphone or a tablet PC.
Once connected to the Net, you have access to the vast and rapidly growing Android app world. Want a more conventional graphic user interface? Then go for the Ubuntu option. Other features include a quad-core ARM Mali-400MP graphics processing unit, 1 GB DRAM and up to 64 GB of storage via microSD card.
Price: about R3 800 (including mini keyboard with touch pad). Contact Ad-Pods on 021-820 8520 or visit www.adpod.co.za
